Sjoa River # 1

>> Friday, June 25, 2010

After a few paddles on the Sjoa I am starting to feel like I'm getting comfy in the Fluid Expedition Solo again.The spring issue of Canada's Rapid Magazine named Sjoa the no.1 whitewater town in the world. That's a big call, but they hit the nail on the head. The Sjoa river offers a bit of everything. Great play spots on the play run, an impressive slolom course with accomodation at the Sjoa Kajak Camp and just below that you can test yours skills on the Riksanlegget section. This monring Ine and myself headed upstream and ran the Aamot Juvet section. A stunning gorge filled with huge waterfall tributaries and some larger rapids. You really can have you cake and eat it on the Sjoa River.

Frida, an old river dog. I'm sure if she could talk she would have some great stories to tell of the kayakers which have passed through the valley over the years.
