Where in Europe can you experience one of the best spring rafting trips?
Get ready for world-class rafting - in Norway!
Every spring, the river Numedalslågen in Dagali, Norway, wakes up to a new rafting season. After being frozen for several months, it will soon be visited by adventurers not only from Norway, but from all over the world. The river is suitable for all. Rafting Center Dagali Fjellpark runs over 3 different sections on the river, and welcomes families, groups who want to experience a good, fun adventure, and of course those who want the Full On extreme experience.
Little Zambezi – the best spring rafting in Europe
The Zambezi is world famous in the rafting community. Many travel from around the world to Africa to experience its powerful waves. But you do not need to travel that far. Around mid June, something special takes place in the Numedalslågen in Norway. The snow has nearly all gone and the river is at its highest flow.
The rivers in Central Europe usually offer 1.5 m high waves. Such high waves are large and powerful and you really feel it when you sit in the boat. You get them right up to eye level as you are sitting in the raft.
When the Numedalslågen is at its highest, we can experience three metre high waves. The water level can be up to 300 cubic metres per second. It’s not quite the 7000 cubic metres per second of the Zambezi, but the style of the Numedalslågen in high flow is why its sometimes called the Little Zambezi. And it is the best spring rafting in Europe.

Is it cold?
It is a river that flows down from the mountains, so we wouldn’t call it tropical. But when the river guides compare the experience with other similar rivers, for example Sjoa, they always say that the water is not so cold as Sjoa. The Numedal gate does not start like a glacier.
In addition, we make sure to do our best for you as a customer. 6 mm thick neoprene wetsuits and 5 mm boots are included. They help you keep much warmer than the usual 3 mm wetsuits. Enjoy the best spring rafting in Europe!
