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 via ferrata, followed by a rope bridge, stretched across to the other side of the canyon. From there we move furter into the canyon with via-ferrata, a new balance bridge, before do our first dive of the day from 3 meters hight! 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!
Most of our guests wish to drive their own cars from our office in Valldal to Gudbrandsjuvet (Towards Trollstigen – about 15 km). You then don`t need to follow us back to our office after the trip. After the trip, you deliver our equipment and clothing at Gudbrandjuvet and continue to travel. However, if you wish a transfer please advise us when booking. You will be asked about this when you book. NOTE that you will save 30 – 45 minutes of the total time of the tour by driving your own car.
