The Austervefsna is the perfect river for rafting. The rapids are big and forgiving, and are sure to put a smile on your face! It runs through a pristine river canyon flanked by large trees, immersing us in unspoilt nature and tranquility.
The normal Classic Rafting (3 hours) allows time for playing around in the river, surfing and enjoying the scenery as we go downstream. This is a trip suitable for beginners and advanced alike. Age limit: 14 years. RiverNorth also offer full day rafting and wilderness rafting. Read more on their websites.
This rafting are designed for children from 6 to 14 years, as well as their family members. There is plenty of action when you paddle through fun waves or go swimming in the moving water, but also time to enjoy the wilderness and disconnect from everyday life.
The goal is to give you and your family an unforgettable day on the river!
