Kayaking on the River Nid

It´s easy to imagine yourself paddling through the past as we glide by colourful old warehouses, medieval Nidaros Cathedral and the formidable Kristiansten Fortress. We also explore the river´s smaller channels near the harbour and see sights that you can only discover by kayak. The River Nid is also a good place to fish for trout and even salmon. Every year salmon weighing more than 20 kg are caught in the river´s lower reaches. This expedition is not about action-packed adventure, it´s about sightseeing and contemplation.
