TBD: Hellesylt / Downtown Ørsta

Check out the river action at X2 Festival!

XCreek is a all about getting down the river in high speed. The participants will paddle down the river in turns individually. Along the river you’ll meet challenges like waves, slides and waterfalls, which paddlers will hopefully get through without rolling over. The first place prize goes to the one who’s left with the best time combined. They’ll also compete the first part of the Norwegian Whitewater Cup!

XCreek kickstarts the paddle season where both experienced and beginners from home and abroad will take the challenge. This is also a cool branch to experience from the sidelines, where you get stuck in the paddles while fighting through the water masses.

The competition will take place in Bygdelva in Hellesylt, where it’s challenging and there are good conditions. You’ll find Bygdaelva along Fv. 80, so drive towards the Hellesylt town center and continue on Fv. 80 up the valley until you see the paddles and spectators along the way. Please don’t park along the road, the parking attendants will show you the right place. The competition may be moved due to water level, so it's a good idea to check the Facebook event for XCreek or program on the website the day before the competition.

Safety equipment such as helmet, vest and throw line are required for participants. Spectators should make as much noise as possible, so bring a horn!
