  • PACKRAFTING IN RONDANE

    Join us for 3 days of adventure and exploration, when you paddle remote rivers in wild scenery. The packraft is a small, inflatable and lightweight boat, which can easily be paddled on both flat and whitewater.

     

    With a weight of only 4 kg it fits in your backpack, it gives you endless possibilities for new trips. With a packraft lakes and rivers are no longer a hindrance or something to go around, but rather something to explore and use as a new way of transportation. The packraft is very stable and easy to learn to paddle, so no paddling experience is required. The guides will teach you all the basics and bring you out paddling easy whitewater in places you normally wouldn’t reach by yourself. You will be supplied with all the paddling equipment needed, and outfitted with a drysuit, lifevest and a helmet you will be ready to explore the wilderness from a new angle.

     

    Rondane River Lodge serves as your cosy basecamp.

     

    Day 1:

    The hosts welcome you at Rondane River Lodge and inform you about the program for the next days. Relax in your comfortable hotel room or log cabin and enjoy a home-made 3 courses welcome dinner in the restaurant.

     

    Day 2:

    Prepare your own lunch package from the tasty breakfast buffet. On the first day on the water, you will start out slowly: the guides will show you how to use all your new equipment. On a calm flat stretch of water you will get to know the different paddling techniques and learn how to swim and reenter the boat if you tip over. At the end of the day you will also get to paddle your first waves.

     

    Day 3:

    On the second day you will go further north in the Atna valley, to the river Grimse. Grimse is a smaller river, which starts out narrow along cliffs and some small gorges. The second half is easy whitewater and flatwater sections through a beautiful highland valley. You will take breaks along the way and have a good lunch outside.

     

    Days 4:

    Its back on the Atna river today for more whitewater. We are going to paddle a new section through a wide highland valley with gentle swift water sections and easy rapids – but there will be enough to challenge you when you also get the possibility to go first and try to choose the best line. Again, we will enjoy the whole day outside and find a nice spot for lunch along the way. We will round of your stay with a festive meal at the River lodge.

     

    Day 5:

    Last breakfast and time to say goodbye.
