It's easy to imagine yourself paddling through the past as we glide along the River Nid by colorful old warehouses, medieval Nidaros Cathedral, and the formidable Kristiansten Fortress. We also explore the river's smaller channels near the harbor 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 44 lbs are caught in the river's lower reaches. This expedition is not about action-packed adventure, it's about sightseeing, relaxation, and contemplation.
