After briefing and gearing up at the rafting Centre we will get you to the river in our bus or minibuses, the journey taking about 30 minutes. At the river, there will be a safety talk and instruction before splitting into teams of 4-7 guests. Each raft will be instructed by a river guide who will give you more personal instruction and turn you into race team. After some training, the rafting heads down through easy rapids as a warm up. During this section all guests will have to do a controlled swim through a small rapid supervised by our professional guides - we call this acclimatization! You are then ready for the rapids of the main section!
We make a short de-tour around the 11 meter 'Money Drop' Waterfall before we start the last section, here we will have a short break with coffee, tea and biscuits.
After the break it is time for action! The guides will get you ready for a wild ride, going over a few important commands and informing you of the rapids to come. We then run the river and rapids in a routine to maximize fun and action with no compromise on safety, eventually drifting down to the finishing point.
After being on the river for approx. 2 hours, we return to the rafting centre for hot shows, after which you may view pictures from the tour and purchase refreshments from our bar in the Årestove - For the perfect finish to the trip you should really book a session in the Hot-tubs and sauna!
Grade 3-4, approx. 8kms. A classic! This is our most usual rafting tour with 9 spectacular rapids and several beautiful sections. Since the river has a pool-drop profile, the grading is relatively low compared with the size of the rapids you will run, giving you great bang for your buck!
Grade 3-4+, approx. 7 kms. We run this river when the Stranda River is too low, normally through August - Sept. This river runs through a beautiful canyon away from the road. The river is demanding and is considered being one of the most technical in Norway.
WARM MEAL AFTER TOUR
The tour includes a meal of home-made soup or stew served with fresh bread. Please contact us for vegetarian option!
