WILDERNESS RAFTING a unique wilderness adventure
This longer daytrip runs through Austervefsna´s wildest canyon. The rapids are bigger and more technical than on our shorter day trip which runs further downstream. Here we are really immersed in the remote wilderness. The forest along this section is untouched and the bird life is exquisite! The whole section runs through a unique nature reserve. Not many people have seen these places with their own eyes! Many parts are totally in-accessible, even for the most avid fishermen.
In places we need to get out and walk past rapids that are not suitable to be descended, but that is just part of the adventure.
I dare to say that this is the best rafting one can do in all of Europe and Skandinavia!
The Austervefsna river provides for everyone! You don't need experience for this trip, but exitement for water and outdoors! We gladly take first timers onto our full day trip, just be aware to spend a day on the water with no way out! As good as it gets our guides would say.
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?
You can add "photos" on the booking page for NOK 100 extra per person. We then bring along an extra "photo kayaker" to capture the best moments of your life ;-)
