On this guided tour, after an introduction to canoe paddling, we follow old waterways and listen to their floating tales. Many times we will come upon well-aged relics from the floating period. We will, for example, stay overnight at or in a little floating hut respectively, visit the floating tunnel, come across waterfalls, make a trip to the "Tinnsjøstig" in the "Raua" canyon and to fjord-like Tinnsjø. With a little luck we will see beavers, elks, cranes... [click here for detailed information on tours and prices].
