Top 5 activities in Setesdal

TrollAktiv offers a wide range of outdoor activities that can be adapted to suit families, groups of friends, companies and schools. The company is located in Evje in Nedre Setesdal, only one hour from Kristiansand. The following are 5 tips for fun activities supplied by Simon and Tim at TrollAktiv:

1. Rafting
Rafting on the Otra river is probably Evje’s most popular attraction. Syrtveitsfossen is a spectacular waterfall with exciting rapids to navigate.

Rafting has been a cornerstone of TrollAktiv’s activities in Evje since 1994, and we know the Otra river inside out. We offer two different rafting tours covering all ages.

2. BikePark & Pump Track
TrollAktiv is proud to present our super-fantastic fun BikePark situated approximately 6 km north of Evje.

The park is equipped with plenty of challenging elements such as see-saws, banking curves, a swing bridge built in the trees, balancing beams and ramps.

3. Evje Climbing Park
In 2018, TrollAktiv opens a brand new, exciting and modern climbing park.

The park includes numerous obstacles, challenges and zip lines whooshing through the trees. You can spend 2-3 adrenalin-filled hours here, high up in the trees!!

How high dare you climb?

4. SUP – Stand Up Paddling
To our knowledge, TrollAktiv is the only company in Norway offering Stand Up Paddling (SUP) on a river. The reason why this activity is so popular is that it’s easy to learn with the right equipment and offers an instant feeling of mastery. We paddle on the Otra river on SUP boards and teach you the simple techniques of paddling stood up. The session consists of learning, mastering the technique, surfing and fun.

5. Canoe hire
Why not hire a canoe from TrollAktiv and explore the lake and islands in Byglandsfjorden? This fun activity is ideal for families as it does not require much experience and suits all ages. TrollAktiv canoe hire includes paddles and life-vests, and the canoes are designed to carry up to three people. Canoeing is a great way to explore nature the quiet way and see the countryside from a new perspective.

Enjoy a great canoe trip!
