Riding the rapids
It’s not for the faint of heart, but rafting will give you the kind of spine-tingling thrills that only close encounters with nature can produce. But please keep in mind that even the most daring thrill seeker should follow the safety procedures.

Fast-flowing and frothing waters running over huge rocks and through tight gorges can quickly become addictive, and many rafters have Norwegian rivers on their whitewater bucket list. Several of the rivers require a certain degree of technical expertise, while other trips are more family-friendly through calmer rapids.

The Sjoa River in Oppland county has perhaps the most famous rafting offering in Norway. Voss in Fjord Norway, on the other hand, is known as an adventurous destination, and it might not be a coincidence that the humorous motto for their rafting center is “we guarantee to wet your pants!”. But there are many other rafting centers as well, from Mandalselva in the south of Norway to Driva in Trøndelag, and Auster-Vefsna in the north.

Dynamic Variation:

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.

For your own safety, please always use a professional 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. When accidents do occur, it is unfortunately often because of bad research and lack of preparation.
