Slow is fast… Take your time, stay a few days, explore the beautiful Heidal Valley and experience some of the world’s most famous whitewater rivers. 


Surrounded by trees and with the sounds of the birds and the river, pick your favourite spot to hang up your hammock or pitch a tent. If you don’t have camping equipment or prefer a roof over your head we also have a basic cabin and two “camping” bedrooms.
Please note this is a peaceful area. Have fun but please no partying after 10pm. After a day of kayaking, you will be ready for your bed anyway! 😉
