Weather and rafting
Like other nature experiences, the weather can affect the rafting experience. If it is a dry summer with little rain, the river will be relatively calm because there is little water in circulation. In wet summers with a lot of rain, there can be a large flow of water in the river, which gives a more challenging rafting experience. CHECK OUT WEATHER AT TROLLAKTIV
Will photos be taken on the trip?
In high season we offer rental of Go Pro cameras and purchase of photos from the trip.
At TrollAktiv, we use specially built, self-draining inflatable boats developed especially for use in rivers and rapids. The rafts can accommodate up to 8 people plus a guide in each boat. We try our very best to arrange for people in the same group to sit in the same raft.
Age limit and height
At TrollAktiv, we use height to determine rafting limits and not age. This is to ensure the safety of the participants.
Over 140 cm high = can participate in all rafting trips
Over 120 cm high = can participate in family rafting
Children under 120 cm cannot participate in rafting for safety reasons.
Like other nature experiences, rafting may involve some risk. There are strong forces at play in a river, and factors such as water level, season and weather can affect the conditions in the river. Therefore, it is important to have an experienced instructor with you who can lead the boat in a safe way and who knows the river and the river rapids well.
At TrollAktiv, we follow modern Norwegian safety standards and have instructors with extensive training and experience. Therefore, you can be sure that it is as safe as possible to raft with us.
When you participate in rafting, you will receive a CE-approved life jacket. The CE marking means that the life jacket meets the safety requirements from the authorities. You will also receive safety equipment such as a wetsuit, helmet and splashproof/windproof jacket. Together, the equipment ensures that you are well prepared before we go on the rafting trip. It is important that all participants use the equipment throughout the trip.
