We are introducing Packrafting. A new and exciting activity for Extremsportveko 2022!

Packrafts are wide, stable one-person inflatable crafts. They can weigh as little as 2kg and fit in a backpack. This opens up endless opportunities for adventures in the wilderness. They are robust, stable and very easy to learn, and suitable for use on all bodies of water. From fjords to surfing waves and running waterfalls. Due to their versatility, lightness, and stability, these crafts are becoming more and more popular as an easier and friendlier way to get into and explore the world of whitewater.

This year at Extremsportveko Kayak Voss will be offering 4hr guided trips and a bit of an introduction to the exciting world of whitewater packrafting.

We will meet you at the car park of Kiwi Palmafossen from there you can follow us to the river. Starting from Bjorke we will run a beautiful section of the crystal clear and turquoise waters of the Raundelen river. This is a journey down to the damn at Palmafossen. We will talk a little bit about the packrafts and their uses and cover some important safety aspects of the river. Once on the water, we will get you comfortable in your packraft, falling out of it and climbing back in. From there we will go over some basic paddling techniques and skills to enable you to navigate this beautiful stretch of the river and enjoy its many rapids!

Kayak Voss will provide all of the river equipment that you will need. We will do our best to provide you with some photos from your trip!

We really looking forward to seeing you in the packrafts during Ekstremsportveko 2022!
