Family rafting

Our family rafting trips are designed for families with children from the age of six, and everyone else who wants it a bit more relaxed than on the classic rafting trips. There are fun rapids to splash through, and plenty opportunity for swimming in the river if one wants to - and in our experience - kids do!

Description

Depending on waterlevels we will choose the Svenningdal river or the Austervefsna river for this tour. There is plenty of action when we paddle through fun waves or go swimming in the moving water, but also time to enjoy the scenery and disconnect from everyday life together with your family. It is great to combine your half day Family rafting with our river SUP or rappelling, both activities available from the age of 12.

Our goal is  simply to give you and your family an unforgettable day on the river!

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. We do however give discounts to families, so that the children (under 14 years old) pay 50 kr. pr. prs.

Difficulty & Safety

The rivers we raft have moving current and nice easy rapids, and are perfect for a family river experience. There will be a safety briefing and a paddle technique briefing before the start of the trip. Your guides are absolute professionals with vast experience on the river.

Other information

You will get a wetsuit, neoprene shoes, life jacket, helmet and a paddle for the trip. 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.
