Depending on the water level and which location offers better conditions, the Family Rafting Trip take place on the river Svenningelva or on the eastern branch of the Vefsna river. All in all, the rafting adventure takes about 3.5 hours, from the time you put on your wetsuit until we’ve arrived at the destination, towelled dry and changed clothes again.
RiverNorth Rafting always has two guides on each of its rafting trips, and they have an uncompromising focus on safety. While the age minimum for the Wilderness Expeditions is 16 years, and 14 years for the Half-Day and Full-Day Rafting Adventures, anyone who is at least six years of age is welcome to come along on the Family Rafting Trips.
The family-friendly trips take place on a river rated as Easy to Moderately Difficult. While much of it flows gently, there will be waves and beautiful rapids that are sure to bring forth a satisfied smile on young and old. It’s also worth noting that RiverNorth has a beautiful but simple camp on the river, where you can set up a tent or rent a spot for your camper or caravan.
Bring woollen or thermal underwear, and thin woollen socks to wear under your wetsuit. Also bring a towel to use after the trip.
They’ll lend you a wetsuit, helmet and life jacket, but you must bring your own sneakers or other footwear that can withstand getting wet.
