Sjoa River Festival is a grassroots kayaking event that has been a great highlight of the summer paddling season in Norway since 1997. Hosted by Strie Strømmer and Gene17Kayaking, with help from volunteers from the kayaking community.

Based around the Strie Strømmer kayak shop in the Heidal Valley and in middle of one of the world’s best white water kayaking destinations. Come and join us on the banks of the Sjoa, paddlers come from all over, share local info, water levels and where to find liquid sunshine amongst the canyons of Norway.

The Sjoa River Festival is held during Week 28, (roughly the second week of July), every year.
