Testimonials from previous participants:

Canoe Journey, August 2023, NorwayIt was an intense and wild but at the same time educational and inspiring experience. I am very grateful for this fantastic trip that Manuel has put together and hope that more adventurous visitors get to enjoy it in the future.

Thank you very much, Marie and Manuel, for an amazing canoe tour on the Finna River, a lively mountain river located in the midst of an impressive glacially formed trough valley in the Norwegian fjell. We thoroughly enjoyed both the exiting rapids and the relaxed picnic by the riverbank with you!

Magical spring canoe trip – floating through the Norwegian mountains. The absolut highlight was to see a mother and calve moose bathing on a sandbank!
