About river rafting in Norway

Although rafting is a thrilling experience for the individual, it also demands co-operation. The level of difficulty of each trip determines age limits and the degree of physical stamina required of the participants.

Safety is a primary issue for the organisers of these trips, so they provide the necessary equipment such as helmets, wetsuits, and life vests. Participants must bring their own wool sweaters, wool underwear and thick woollen socks.

For your own safety you should always use a rafting guide that knows that specific river. Never go rafting on your own without extensive knowledge of the river. If you do go on your own, always consult the local guides if it is safe to go rafting. Remember that you are responsible for your own safety.
