Canyoning is a super fun, fresh and exciting activity developed for those seeking both adventure and to challenge themselves. On this trip you can make your heart leap while you test your fear of heights. This trip is best suited to active persons.
The canyoning tour follows the last section of the Festa Canyon where the water from Trollheimen and Gjevilvatnet follow down to join the Driva River. We travel down the canyon to where it steepens and cascades into the Driva River. You will not find more dramatic and spectacular canyoning in the country!
