What You’ll Do
We’ll meet at our base in Beitostølen where we will first go through the plan for the day. Next, we will ride on snowmobiles up to the rafting track in the mountains.
One of our guides will give a quick safety demonstration before we proceed to find suitable helmets for everyone, but you may also bring your own helmet. Finally, bring on the fun! The snowmobiles will transport you to the top of the track, and our guides will make the raft ready for action. All you have to do is hold on and just enjoy the thrilling downhill rafting experience down the nearly 500 meter track.
