Me and my friend went for a spontaneous rafting trip. First time for me but not for my friend and hopefully not the last. The guides were from New Zeeland and very social. We went with Nathan. He really gave his all to make this a memorable ride for us and it surely was. They are taking very cool pictures for you along the trip a it's worth every penny to do this.

I hope I can get back sometime.

Thank Patrik M

We went with another family for the familyrafting because of 2 of our kids just below the age of 15, so legally impossible to do the white water rafting. We were a bit afraid that it would be too little adventurous for our kids, but they assured us that even for the 18 year old it would be challenging. So upon this we decided to subscribe and pay nearly 3000 kroner for our family of five which for non norwegian residents is quite a substantial amount of money. In the end it was even worse than imagined, the rafting is on one of the calmest rivers in norway, the trip up and down with the bus is nearly one hour, the briefing takes another half an hour, the time on the water is just over one hour of which half is dedicated to letting you take a swim, which ended up being the most expensive swim I ever had. So one advice to customers with kids over 10 years old: don't waste your money on this and wait till they are 15 years old. One advice to Voss rafting : be honest to your customers about what to expect and do not pretend more than there is to it.

Hey there Geert and thanks for your comments. We are sorry to hear you did not enjoy our Family Rafting Tour and we will try harder to be clearer with our information as you suggest. We do try to provide all the details of the trip on our website including the trip duration and river-time, as well as the target customer. We do also try hard to make sure the product matches the desires of the guests when they book a trip or turn up for check-in - but here we seem to have failed.

We will try harder.

Happy travels

We rafted at Voss with a large group and had a wonderful time. We had people of all ages and everyone enjoyed themselves. The guides were very friendly and competent. We had a Brit, an Aussie and one from New Zealand. The rafts were good and the river was beautiful. There were not a lot of rapids but enough to keep it interesting. We wore wetsuits because the water was 48 degrees and they keep you comfortable. We jumped in the river at one point for fun and FYI for those not familiar with wetsuits....you still get the exhilaration of the cold. After the bus ride back we ate in the cafe and had a good lunch. I would highly recommend this adventure.

I went together with a group of around 35 people, and the whole day was awesome! First of all the rafting was extremely fun, and for most of us, it was our first time. Even everyone were a bit nervous, the guides made us feel pretty safe and comfortable while giving us an introduction before entering the river. All of the guides were really nice! It was alot of water in the river, and the rafting was perfect. I think everyone pushed some limits during the rafting :)
Afterwards, we went to the rafting center and had some good local beers while enjoying the hot-tub, and the sauna. The staff made a perfect barbecue with different types of food for everyone's taste.
The only thing that was negative, was that we couldn't stay longer as the time flew away.
