F.A.Q. – River Canoe tours in Voss with Outdoor Norway and our answers.
No, you don’t. Most of our guests are first-timers and our trips, equipment, and briefings are designed to put beginners at ease.
Our experienced guides will provide a safety orientation before you get on the water and coach you the whole way through the rapids. No previous experience is necessary.
We recommend that all of our canoers be in good physical health.
If you have a medical issue but you still want to go river canoeing, we always recommend you check with your doctor first.
Plan “A” is always to stay in the boat.
Before you go on any trip, you’ll be given extensive instructions on what to do if you fall in, and how to be a smart swimmer.
Follow your guide’s instructions, and your “swim” could be the most exciting part of your trip and a great story to tell your friends afterwards!
There is no maximum age limit for our tours – as long as you’re physically fit you’re welcome aboard!
Our scenic float is also an amazing experience for anyone still wanting to get out on the river, but not interested in grade III rapids.

May: is a melting season and varies from 5°C to 8°C
June: still melting and varies from 7°C to 12°C
July: from 11°C to 19°C. Here depends a lot about the amount of snow is left in the high mountains and the west side of Hardangervidda plateau. If there is very little amount of snow left + hot air temperatures then by the mid July the water can be warmer. In recently summers few of our guests don’t even bother to dress a wetsuit.
August: from 10°C to 17°C
September: from 9°C to 15°C
October: from 8°C to 13°C
Outdoor Norway provide all guests with: wetsuit John, wetsuit jacket, neoprene river boots and water-resistant/wind-resistant jacket so you can be warm out there.
Note: If you ever ask a Vestlander (A Norwegian born in the west part of Norway) “What is the water temperature like?” they will simple resume the answer to: “The water is fresh”. Meaning it’s never cold and always optimal for an adventure, only thing you need is the right equipment.
