There’s no feeling more liberating than paddling down a river surrounded only by the tranquillity of Norwegian nature. If this sounds like something for you, why not get involved and join our whitewater kayaking course. At the end of the course you are awarded the NPF grunnkurs i elvekajakk.
We keep our course sizes small (maximum 6 people) so you can be assured of an excellent and safe experience on world-class whitewater rivers.
River kayaking requires a different skillset to that of sea kayaking, and on this course you will learn:
– How to navigate a class 2 river
– Safety routines on the river
– Theory on river currents; hydrology
