Let’s get ready for an extreme adrenaline rush like you get when you surf, but with the extra emotion and challenge of facing river water on a board with the help of a paddle. If you like rafting, now is the time to try stand-up paddle along the river!

What we will see
  • Stand-up paddle along the river near Åndalsnes

What we will do
  • This excursion will take us to the clear waters of a river near Åndalsnes and will test our skills and balance with a few rapids.
  • This experience will be evn more intense than rafting: stand-up paddle is comparable to the kayak excursion, but is done standing on a board (similar to a surf board but thicker) and using a paddle to push forwards.
  • However, this sport is easier to learn and requires less effort.
  • Stand-up paddle along the river is called "sledging" in New Zealand, "whitewater swimming" by others and "hydrofoil" or "hydrospeed" in Europe.
  • Let’s get ready to paddle our boards and get wet in the river waters.
  • The first part of the course concentrates on safety and how to use the board correctly before actually starting on the river.
  • Our guides are expert rafting instructors.

What you need to know
  • Minimum age: 12 years.
  • You must be able to swim and be physically fit to take part in the water activities.
