Whitewater rafting daytrip in Sjoa
This is our flagship excursion on the section of river that put Norway on the international rafting map.
The Sjoa is known for being one of the best whitewater rafting rivers in Europe and this is the trip that made it famous. This excursion takes you on clean, crystal-clear blue water, through stunning deep gorges and big waves, for one of the most enjoyable and memorable rafting trips available anywhere in the world.
The classic daytrip is suitable for everyone, from adrenaline junkies who want to experience the most challenging lines, to those who just want to relax and enjoy the scenery – and everything in between. Different water levels change the experience of the trip. Higher water brings big waves and lower levels require more technical rafting. Our experienced guides are adept at ensuring your safety and a lot of fun and excitement as they expertly navigate the rapids.
At the halfway mark, we stop on the riverbank to enjoy a lunch of warm food, salad and bread. There we also light a campfire and make coffee before taking on the last part of Sjoa. When the water level is appropriately low, we finish the excursion with the famous “Washing Machine” rapid.
Back at basecamp, guests enjoy a hot shower and change of clothes before tea, coffee and juice is served in the BBQ house. Then we gather around a big screen while our photographer shares the action photos taken on the excursion so you can reflect on the adventure from a different perspective.
PLEASE NOTE: All participants on this trip are required to be able to swim.
