Kayaking the Vefsna river
We invite you to go kayaking on the Vefsna river, Øyfjellet towering 818 metres on one side and the historic wooden buildings of Sjøgata street on the other. Since Vefsna is one of Norway’s most renowned salmon rivers, you may see salmon making their way upstream or jumping clear of the water. We go ashore at Marsøra, on the far bank of the river, to stretch our legs. We’ll hear about the extensive timber operations that once took place here, when Englishmen came to harvest the inland forests and ship the much-needed lumber back home. Today the industry by the river-bank is aluminium production.
Before the journey starts, our experienced guides will provide all necessary equipment, and give you a good introduction to kayaking techniques and safety.
