Sjoa Familierafting is located in scenic surroundings in Varphaugen four kilometers north of Sjoa and approx. seven kilometers south of Otta. Varphaugen is from 1744, and the tourism started here in 1947. At Varphaugen, rafting has been practiced since 1989. With our unique location close to the river Gudbrandsdalslågen, we have the perfect starting point for family rafting. The rafting trips start directly from here, so there is minimal bus transportation, and the beautiful surroundings form an optimal setting for child-friendly nature experiences.
Sjoa Familierafting has chosen to focus on family-friendly activities for children under the age of 15, and we therefore recommends our sister company Sjoa Rafting AS for the guest over 15 years old. Sjoa Rafting AS takes care of «the adult activities», approx. 10 minutes’ drive from Varphaugen.
