Driva River Rafting

An adventure you won't forget
In the center of northern Norway exist some of the most unspoiled alpine landscapes anywhere in the world. This is also where you'll find the Driva River. The Dovrefjell Mountains feed the Driva, and it runs 150 km (93 miles) north, down the mountains and through Trøndelag and Møre og Romsdal counties before reaching the town of Oppdal. It then turns westward and snakes through the Sunndalen Valley and to the Sunndalsfjord. The Driva is a popular fishing river that abounds with sea trout, but it also makes for a mighty fun river rafting excursion during the months of May through October.

Your rafting adventure starts right outside of Oppdal. It's near Oppdal where the river turns exciting, as this final 35 km (21-mile) stretch features fun drops and hair-raising rapids. If you're an experienced rafter you'll even have the option to tackle the Gråura Canyon, provided the water levels are low enough to ensure safety. This truly is one of the greatest rivers for rafting in all of Norway.
