Canyoning at Gudbrandsjuvet

Safety and fun

The canyoning takes place close to the renowned canyon Gudbrandsjuvet, approximately 15 kilometres from Valldal towards Trollstigen. We stay in an area of the river where the water is slowly flowing through spectacular mountain formations. Here, we have built a course with different obstacles to pass while moving downwards, and we start at the upper part of the canyon.

The meeting point is Uteguiden’s office in downtown Valldal. Here you will receive the necessary equipment for a trip through the canyon. Wetsuits, flotation vests, and wet shoes will help you stay warm in the chilly river water, while helmets, harnesses, and safety ropes ensure we stay safe during abseiling and climbing.

From here, we will stroll over to the edge of the canyon where the canyoning starts. A skilled instructor will inform you about what is going to happen and what you should know to move through the canyon in the safest way possible. We will split the group into a maximum of 6 participants per instructor so that each group has its own guide throughout the course.

The first challenge is a climbing trail, Via Ferrata, down to the canyon. From there, we cross the river by balancing on a rope stretched to the other side. After some climbing and forcing a balance line, we will meet the first jump from a height of three meters. Furthermore, we move back to the mountain again before some more fun with jumping, swimming, climbing, and zipline. The activity will finish up with a swim together down the rapids at the end of the canyon.


Most guests wish to drive their own cars from our office in Valldal to Gudbrandsjuvet (approx. 15 km towards Trollstigen). Then you will not have to follow the guides back to the office after the trip. You can deliver the equipment and clothing handed out to you at Gudbrandjuvet after the trip. If you should wish a transfer, please advise us when booking. NOTE: You will save 30–45 minutes by driving your own car, because you will not have to return back with us after the canyoning.
