After some years exploring regions further to travel, 2014 was the year that took me back to the Alps, the place where I started to run whitewater. Appreciating the rivers close to home sometimes gets lost while traveling the world with the kayak… So I really enjoyed sharing some of the quality whitewater the alps have to offer with friends from all over the globe.
I managed to finish my norway edit from this year I wrote about earlier. enjoy!
This year I had the opportunity to spend 7 weeks in the country of trolls, mosquitos, sun 24/7 and whitewater everywhere. We started our trip in the south of Norway, the Telemark. Levels were already low there, but we could still paddle the Cali-Section on the Augsbygdai- truely a classic!
After doing laps on the Augsbygdai for a few days we decided to move on and drove to Voss.
Voss is the capital of whitewater kayaking in Norway, so many awesome rivers around which offer several sections at any waterlevel. Every year the Ekstremsportveko takes part in Voss and that’s the time where you want to be there. Heaps of kayakers and serveral other outdoor people, partys every night and super sick events like extremraces, teamraces or boatercross events every day.
