White water rafting in Sjoa

From the majestic Jotunheimen National Park, the Sjoa river runs through mountain lakes, valleys, gorges and waterfalls down to Gudbrandsdalen. Once it has built itself up to its most powerful it finds its way through the village of Heidal. Between idyllic farms with grass-eating cows, the river divides the valley and at the same time facilitates world-class river experiences. From May to October, Sjoa and Heidal are full of happy river people. Whether they are on a rafting trip, kayaking or swimming down Sjoa on river boards, they have one thing in common – the joy of experiencing one of the world’s best rivers. Among the range of river activities offered, rafting in Sjoa is still by far our most popular activity.

The old school building from 1922 is at the heart of the area, surrounded by large birch trees, green grass, lush fields, hot tub, sauna and rafts. Here we also offer accommodation to our guests, and with simple and cozy options both in rooms, cabins and lavvo, we have something for every taste and budget.
