Marcio Franco

CEO & Founder

Languages: Portuguese, English, Norwegian and a bit of Spanish

Franco first came to Norway in 2010 as a whitewater rafting guide & safety kayaker. In 2011, he landed in Voss, where he quickly discovered the incredible and vastly varied opportunities the surrounding nature had to offer. As an experienced paraglider, mountain biker, skier, whitewater kayaker and certified yoga teacher, he knew he could use his background in fitness and adventure sports to help others use their bodies to discover Voss the same way he did.

With over 23 years spent in the outdoor sports industry, he leads the team with a diverse array of knowledge and tools to ensure that the adventures we offer bring nothing but smiles, laughter, and a desire to learn more.

Ruben Johansen Davidsen


Operations Assistant Manager

Languages: Norwegian, English,  and Kayakish

From a small Norwegian town, known primarily for its famous wool sweaters, hails team member Ruben. A natural born leader who has been in a kayak since the age of 14, there is no other place in the world where he feels more at home. Ask him why he loves the sport and he will tell you for the community and the thrill. But in his heart, his affection for water comes from its simple ability to take the paddler to some of the most beautiful, peaceful, and untouched natural places.

With a network of priceless paddle-buddies at his back, a fueling half-liter of yogurt in his belly, and a river of clarity flowing through his mind, Ruben displays a genuine desire to do nothing more than to share the one true love of his life with as many other people as possible.
