A perfect start to river kayaking, where we concentrate on having fun and learning the basics in a safe and controlled environment. 

On this gentle introduction to whitewater kayaking, you get to check out what all the hype is about without committing to the 2-day Grunnkurs Elv. This course is the first step on NPF’s våttkort ladder and is the perfect taster of the beautiful outdoor pursuit of river kayaking - combining learning, fun, nature, and exercise!

All kit is included, and the course size is very small (maximum of 8 participants to 1 instructor) to ensure you have the best possible experience with us. 

Techniques you will learn: how to select and care for gear; basic strokes; safety; exiting the kayak; how to have balance and control on the water.

Level: Suitable for absolute beginners or those who have done some sea kayaking and always wanted to try some whitewater. Please note you need to be able to swim.

Duration: Approximately 5 hours. May be slightly longer or shorter depending on the number of participants.

Location: Lågen River. We meet at Mad Goats Sjoa, 834 Heidalsvegen, 2677 Nedre Heidal and provide to and from the river https://goo.gl/maps/zd1yQ8jZP32saG3x7
