about the log driving festival

History and culture united

Timber Floating – the transport of timber down rivers, has long traditions in Norway. Already before the 1600 century timber floating was common in Glomma river. During the spring flood, in the early days one could see log drivers operate rams or rafts down the river. This work was both heavy and dangerous.

Timber floating has been important to many communities in Norway. Many places did not have roads and transportation on water was often more efficient. In 1992, the last commercial timber flotation took place in the Trysil River.

During the Log Driving Festival, we are reviving an almost 500 year-old tradition, by arranging the World Championship in timber floating in Elverum. It is tough and gives a real challenge to anyone trying.

If you are adventurous and like a real challenge, you can now sign up for your friends or colleagues at the World Cup in Log Driving.
