Wilderness Canoe Adventure – Part 4. Descending the River Røa in Norway. White Water Rapids.

In this video, part 4 in the series, Andy (Kent Survival) and I cross over the border into Norway and begin our descent of the River Røa.

We head off from our last camp spot in Sweden and paddle the last two kilometres to the start of the river in the Fermundsmarka National Reserve. Some rapids we run, others we line the canoes down and some we take the safest option and portage the canoes and gear down – its a remote area, so safety is paramount.

Between the river sections and flowing water are calm open lakes, a nice gentle interred before the next excitement and a time to enjoy our surroundings.

As evening draws, we look for a good place to set up camp and we find a lovely spot next to a lake where we enjoy the evening with a fire and some well earned dinner.

Norway feels very different to the Swedish side of the border – more wild, more rugged and the excitant of the river has changed the tempo of the trip.

I hope you enjoy the video,

Thanks for watching.
