You have never been to Veko or feel like you are doing the same every year? Here is a quick guide on how to get the most out of every day and night at Veko. Hand-picked by our staff.
Thursday. You are rejuvenated. Great, let’s get the weekend going. This year we’re hosting European Championship in whitewater kayaking. This is a must-see event during Veko. The worlds best kayakers meet in the Branseth valley to show their skill is kayaking on the Branseth river. The river is pristine, yeah we know, we have already said that about the Skjervet waterfall. But for real, we are not kidding, it’s pristine because of aluminium in the rock no algae grow in the river keeping the colour of the water blue and the rock white. Anyways it’s spectacular and just like in downhill skiing the first to get to the finish line wins, shown by a big timer to see if they’ll make a run time or not. As a spectator, you can literally stand next to the river and high five kayakers paddling by. Only if the kayakers are stupid enough to actually let go of their paddle and high five you back.
