Evje is a village located in the Setesdal Valley in Norway, a one-hour drive from Kristiansand. It is a great place to visit with your whole family, with amazing scenery and plenty of outdoor activities such as climbing, canoeing, hiking or safaris. The River Otra flows through Evje. It is the largest river in the Sørlandet region and one of the longest rivers in southern Norway.

The adventure begins at the starting point in Evje, where you will meet the certified instructor. The experienced guide will tailor the rafting experience to your level. The trip starts with a safety briefing and paddling instructions. You'll receive the safety equipment (CE-approved life jacket, wet suit, splashproof jacket and helmet) and get on board the sturdy raft. Once on the water, you'll begin paddling under the guide's instruction.

For this excursion, you'll follow an easy route with calmer waters, an exciting experience that allows you to admire the natural scenery of Setesdalen. Further down the river, you'll enjoy some fun rafting games on the bouncier waves. This is the perfect family excursion for children and adults alike! At the end of the rafting experience, you'll paddle back to the starting point in Evje.
