An unprecedented influx of adrenaline will be experienced by everyone who sweeps across a stormy river on a solid raft. Rafting in Norway is common in all regions. On the fast and full-flowing river Sjoa in the western part of the country, you will find the most desperate sportsmen teamed, skillfully avoiding huge boulders and foam lines on streams. Family vacation with children will be provided by the tranquil Driva River in the southern part of Norway. It is famous for its safe flow and impressive landscapes on the banks.
The northern country has prepared high mountains for rock-climbing for true lovers of extreme sports. The areas of Lofoten, the Troll Wall, Sandvika and Kolari are full of trails of different levels of complexity. The rock breed holds athletes well, and the rocks are prickly with an abundance of cracks. Cliffs and quiet northern sunsets hanging over the river will dilute the atmosphere of extreme leisure with moments of tranquility.

A hike on the moving glacier Nigadsbreen will help you forget about all your daily problems. If you have seen everything, and extreme sports are no longer surprising, put on your “crampons” and climb. Endless cliffs overgrown with age-old forest, rough cold mountain rivers, pristine clean air and a heavy dinner in the nearest camping, are some of the things you will encounter on a moving glacier. The lifting service on a glacier is also available in the ski resorts, but the riskiest beyond a doubt, is the legendary Niggadsbreen.

If the adrenaline rushing in the blood requires an urgent exit, base jumping (jumping with parachute from the mountain peaks) is at your service.

In Norway you will find the legendary De Syv Sostrene (the Seven Sisters) waterfall.
