These are the stunning first-person photographs taken by a kayaker in the Norwegian Fjords.
From the spectacular Lofoten Islands to serene Sotra, the pictures really show off Norway’s natural beauty – all from the view of a kayaker.
Tomasz Furmanek, 41, who lives in Bergen, Norway, uses a gopro and a small Sony compact camera on the front of his kayak to take these stunning pictures.
He said: “I have been travelling actively with my kayak for the last 3 years.
“Last year I reduced my employment to 80% to get more time for traveling.
“I usually go kayaking for longer trips during the weekends and in my vacation and during the week I take short kayak trips after work in the fjords near Bergen.”
Tomasz, originally from Poland has been mesmerised by Norway ever since moving there at just six years of age.
He said: “My favourite part of Norway are the Fjordarms and mountains in the Sognefjord area.
“Sognefjellet and Voss are great for skiing, and the fjords nearby are great for kayaking.
“The Lofoten Islands in Northern Norway are also very nice but the conditions are rougher and not as suitable for beginners.
“I will probably travel with my kayak for many years. There are a lot of lakes and fjords that I’ve not visited yet. I also plan to go kayaking in other countries as well as Norway.”
