Canyoning at Gudbrandsjuvet canyon

The trip takes place directly downstream from the renowned Gudbrands Canyon, approximately 15 kilometers from downtown Valldal, towards Trollstigen. The course is located in an breathtaking canyon, where placid water runs between vertical granite walls. Within the canyon we have built a course of obstacles, travelling down the canyon. The first challenge is a rappel down onto a large rock ledge, followed by a rope bridge, stretched across to the other side of the canyon. From there we traverse down towards the water, diving the last portion into the river. After a short swim in the refreshing water, we climb up again, ready for more jumping, swimming, climbing and ziplining. The trip ends with a swim through a white water rapid at the end of the canyon.

Meet-up and equipment

Meet up at our office in downtown Valldal. Here you will meet our welcoming guides and receive all the necessary information and equipment for a trip through the canyon. Wetsuits, life-preservers, and wet-shoes ensure you stay warm in the sometimes chilly Norwegian water. Helmets, harnesses and safety ropes ensure we stay safe during our trip down the river. Once all participants are ready, wearing their equipment, we head for the parking area at Gudbrandsjuvet canyon. From here it is a short walk to the edge of the canyon. At the edge, the lead guide will give an informational and safety briefing to participants, before we split up into groups, and head into the abyss!

Things to bring

Bring wool long underwear for better heat and comfort. A layer of wool beneath wetsuits dramatically increases warmth. Remember to bring dry clothes to change into, and a towel.

Equipment

All equipment is included. Participants are provided with wetsuits, wet-jackets, shoes, life-preservers, helmets, climbing harnesses, and safety ropes.
