Full day rafting

REMOTE WILDERNESS - WILD - SCENIC - SPECTACULAR

Description

Wilderness rafting! The full day is not just a longer half day trip! We raft a whole different section!

Upon meeting at the raft base, we go for a scenic drive to our starting point close to Hattfjelldal. We there gear up and have a safety briefing before we get on to tackle some serious whitewater! Depending on water levels, some rapids may be too dangerous and we need to walk around them, but this is only to keep you alive for all the other rapids still awaiting downstream! It’s not all about adrenaline though. On this trip we travel through a truly unique canyon with untouched forests and high cliffs towering over the river. In fact this is a Nature Reserve! There is also a little surprise hike to a waterfall awaiting around the corner. Halfway we stop at a beach and serve you a warm lunch and cowboy coffee from the fire! The second part of the trip is slightly mellower, but even more scenic. I am literally blown away by the beauty of this canyon every time I go!

Difficulty & Safety

You will get a safety briefing and a paddle technique briefing before starting the trip. Your guides are absolute professionals with adequate river experience, and very high safety standards. The river is considered medium to  difficult (class III-IV+).

Important

  • Nature is the boss! Rain can bring water levels up over night and make it too dangerous. We will always communicate such an event as soon as possible and find alternatives.
  • If you have exceptionally large feet please bring your own running shoes that can get wet.
  • Let the staff know as soon as possible if you have health problems such as, but not limited to, heart conditions, diabetes, back injuries or shoulder  injuries.
  • Inform us about any allergies or dietary requirements for the lunch!

Photos

Such an experience will feel so much better once you can share the photos with your friends and family, or even on your social media accounts. Right? We then bring along an extra “photo kayaker” to capture the best moments of your life. If you are more than 8 people we can do a discount – please get in touch by e-mail or phone. How it works is that everybody in your group need to agree to book, and pay for photos. Nope, it is not possible that one or two people in your group pay their 100 kroners and share the photos with the rest.
