Elvebrett, or riverboarding is an intense experience and the best way to feel the power of the river on your body. We design custom riverboarding excursions according to a group’s preferences.
Riverboarding is a more physically challenging activity than rafting and one that lets you be as immersed in the river as you can possibly be. It is an individual activity which has you lie on a board with handles, in a full wetsuit with flippers and gloves, helmet and life jacket while you negotiate the rapids in the river. Our guides provide instruction and share techniques for a fun and safe experience.
PLEASE NOTE: Riverboarding is suitable for people who have rafted several times and are looking to take their river experience to the next level.
RIVERBOARDING IN SJOA
Our elvebrett/riverboarding excursions are run on different parts of Sjoa, depending on the water levels. Before braving the rapids, our guides will provide a thorough briefing on technique and what to expect in the water. The guides will come with you, but you will be in control of your own board while you surf waves and go down the rapids.
This activity requires participants to be in good physical shape, but the excursion can be adjusted to the participants’ condition, preferences and experience.
At the end of the excursion, you will enjoy a warm shower and lunch and coffee with your guides.
