Eastern Norway Viken NESBYEN

Stand Up Paddle on the Hallingdal River

  • Nesbyen, Nesbyen
  •  /  km From You

A nice and fun water activity for the whole family - SUP board, oar and floating vest (NOK 300,- per. pers.)

Rent SUP boards and equipment: NOK 300, - per. pers. per day
Rent SUP board and transport / pick-up along the river: NOK 500, - per. pers. per day
SUP safari with instructor / guide: NOK 950, - per. pers. per day


Stand up paddle is a nice and fun water activity that the whole family will master. In addition to a great outdoor experience, it can also be a good exercise. The basic product includes SUP-boards, paddle oar and floath vests. Hallingdalselva flows calm and smoothly downstream from Nesbyen and fits superbly to SUP.

We can offer transportation and pickup from agreed pickup points if you want to float downstream on the river. Bromma, about one mile downstream from Nesbyen, is a good destination for the trip. Check the box for transportation and we will pick you up here or at another agreed pickup point.

We also offer SUP safari on Hallingdalselva with a guide/instructor who will guide you and give tips on technique. This can be reassuring if you have never tried Stand Up Paddle earlier.

Duration and meeting place:
Up to 6 hours (usually 10-16, but we are flexible and agree the appropriate time when the order is made).

If you stay overnight in Nesbyen city center, we can pick you up by appointment. Otherwise, we are flexible with where the boards can be picked up / delivered. We will contact you about this this when the order is made.

As with other low intensity activity, dress for today's weather. Compare the intensity of a stroll in the woods.

Your clothes CAN get wet, but most people manage to stay above water the whole time.

Your feet usually get a bit wet, especially when it´s a bit windy. Sandals or crocs works great. Sneakers with a soft sole also works great. Shoes with a hard sole like mountain shoes can damage the board and should not be used.

You will get a floating vest (not life jacket) when renting a board. This also warms a little.

Dry bag is available if for transport of clothes, mobile etc. This can be fastened on the front of the board.
