Experience the beauty and majesty of a glacier up close and personal. The day trips are to the Bøverbreen / Smørstabbreen, or Svellnosbreen glaciers, possibly another glacier if desired. Each participant is equipped with a harness, crampons and ice axe. Participants help to decide how easy or strenuous it is on the glacier, eg. just a walk, a little ice climbing, rappelling etc.
We provide all specialist glacier equipment. Participants should wear sturdy hiking boots with relatively stiff soles and sensible alpine clothing. Participants must also bring a packet lunch including something to drink.
Day Trip Rafting Heidal
With normal and high water levels we raft the Sjoa’s best stretch twice. The first trip is an opportunity for to learn the commands, paddle techniques and coordination. The first trip ends by paddling into our camp for a warm lunch.
After lunch at the camp we challenge the river again with more surfing, action and fun.
If the water level is lower this allows us to raft the ‘washing machine’ After lunch we set off downstream to tackle the biggest rapid of the day, we end the tour at ‘Riksanlegget’ the National facility for whitewater.
