What time of year is best for rafting?
The rafting season in Dagali usually always starts the first weekend after the 17th of May, one of the reasons is the water level in the river, they are depending on warm temperatures at night. The road to the river must also be snow-free, it is closed in winter and is not ploughed, so the snow must have melted and the road dried up. There are many elements that affect the rafting season, and it is difficult to predict future seasons. From experience, the spring flood mostly comes at the beginning of June. Then they have to avoid the biggest rapids, and usually move further down the river. The best time for rafting is right after the flood has subsided somewhat, in late June to mid-July, when the conditions are perfect for all rafting trips, for both families and the most extreme. The family and super rafting trips are always feasible, they have the option to move down/up the river. The Viking and extreme tours are more sensitive, as they are more dependent on the correct water level.

Numedalslågen is Norway's third longest river with a length of approx. 352 km starting from Hardangervidda. The fresh, crystal-clear water from the national park flows through Dagali and further down Numedalen and finally flows into the sea at Larvik.
