River Rafting

The River Rafting is arranged by Uppsala Union of Engineering and Science Students.

The River Rafting started when two students, Anders Ahnesjö and Carl-Johan Hansson, made a bet whether or not they could make it down the Fyrisån during Walpurgis 1975. Today the River Rafting is one of the biggest and most exciting events that is organised by students in Sweden and is an attractive meeting point between corporations, students and the public. Every year on Valborg morning, on the last of April at 10 AM, tens of thousands of people gather to the edges of the Fyris river to see amazingly colorful rafts challenge cascades and waterfalls of the Fyris river. The rafts have to endure the perilous journey from Eddaspången all the way down to Islandsfallet.
