The River Way

The River Way is submerging yourself in everything the life-giving Vefsna has to offer. A river that gives you great peace and excitement at the same time. Here you will experience world-class salmon fishing in one of Norway's very best salmon rivers. The River Way can also entice with the promise of a real adrenaline kick as you raft down the wild Auster–Vefsna. There are also large areas perfect for mountain hiking with countless fishing lakes. In addition, the riverbends holds a lot of exciting local history. At the beginning of the century, almost all the forest in Grane was cut down by a British company and its timber floated down the wilding rivers and all the way to the fjord. You can look forward to some fascinating stories. Your host from “Utpå Neset” will meet you at the train station, and they will make sure you will be looked after in the very best way. Your lodging is simple and rural in the historic 160-year-old log house "Bakarstuo" right by the riverbank. Here you will be treated to a good bed to sleep in, fantastic local food and the chance to let yourself be completely submerged by local history and experience living surrounded by truly wild nature and warm Nordland hearts. If you wish, you will get help hooking the world-famous salmon. Landing a large salmon is a unique experience that few have, and eating it, straight from the river, if possible, is even more exclusive. Those who want a fast-paced experience that is guaranteed to raise their pulse will love river rafting down the mighty Auster-Vefsna. Since its inception in 2017, RiverNorth Rafting has taken more than 8,000 guests down what is one of the country's best rafting rivers, a rare nature experience. Here, adrenaline junkies of all ages can raft down wild rapids with expert guides, and at the same time experience calm parts of the river where you can collect yourself and take in the beautiful surroundings. End your adventure with a delicious dinner at the guest house Utpå Neset where you are guaranteed to go to bed with a big smile on your face.
