RIVER CANOE – Guided tour
Paddle along a beautiful stretch of the gorgeous Raundal River on our fun and flow Canoe trip.
Take your entire family or friends on a relaxing and outstanding adventure! Outdoor Norway will take you on a stunning trip to discover the magnificent Raundal River from an inflatable canoe or small raft.
Your 5km “fun-flow” experience starts where the Marine Canyon finishes at. A friendly experienced guide will accompany you while you ‘go with the flow’ and paddle down this picturesque river and enjoy the outstanding scenery.
Your tour will finish at Palmafossen; a 15m high waterfall on the Raundalselva river, here you will find a Salmon Ladder that helps the salmon to swim all the way up the Raundalen. There the shuttle back to Voss awaits you.
Our fun Flow Canoes & Rafts provide you with the perfect way for you and your entire family to enjoy this breathtaking scenery. The section of river we paddle contains many fun rapids in the Class I-II category as well as many beautiful pools for you to relax and float through while enjoying the crystal clear water.
Our qualified guide will provide instruction (dry land and on-the-water) so that you not only have a great trip but learn skills that you can apply to future paddle adventures as well.

Palmafossen – 15m high waterfall on the Raundal River.
Fish Ladders are one of the most commonly used methods to grow the fish population in Norway. These ‘Ladders’ help by allowing the fish to access larger areas of the river upstream which they otherwise could not access due to large obstacles in the river that they can’t swim up – e.g. waterfalls. By helping the fish to come up such previously impassable obstacles, it gives them more space to breed and feed. Fish Ladders have great significance for the maintenance of biodiversity and productivity. In the current situation with many endangered stocks of salmon and freshwater fish, this is particularly important.
