THE BRENNVIK MASSIF EXPEDITION
The Brennvik Expedition is our new summer adventure with a focus at mountain hiking. You can join this expedition in June, July, August and September. We explore the Brennvik massif in the north of Norway from all sides. So, one day we are up in the mountains and the next one we are kayaking along the coast to get a different perspective. We sleep most of the time in tents, under a tarp (if you like) and occasionally in a (mountain) cabin. Cooking will be outside most of the time, and we pick berries in the forests (August and September). You need some outdoor and backpacking experience to join this expedition and like to hike up steep mountains. Lot of things to learn if wandering in the mountains attracts you! Beginner level mountaineering
YOUTH ARCTIC OUTDOOR SUMMER CAMP
Give your son or daughter a great time in the Norwegian nature! We organise summer camps for 16-19 year old boys and girls in the north of Norway. In the eight days that your son or daughter stays with us we will teach them how to camp in the wild and give them outdoor skills to stay safe and comfortable in the outdoors. They will learn how to light & cook on a fire, how to catch fish and how to observe wildlife. There are guided hiking, kayaking and snorkeling activities included in this trip. Important for us are that your son or daughter has an enjoyable time with us, learn a lot about nature & sustainability, connect to nature in a respectful way and meet others from all over the world.
ARCTIC SURVIVAL and safety TRAINING
summer & winter
If you want to learn to be on your own in wild surroundings, then this Arctic Survival & Safety Training is something to consider. During your stay with us, we train you and provide skills & thoughts to undertake these kinds of adventures. Outdoor, bushcraft and survival skills are not sufficient to be in wild regions. You also need to have experience in different terrain. So we take you to rugged valleys with rivers, the mountains, Arctic forests, snow-covered highlands and at sea. A vital element of this training is psychology and getting to know yourself. This training is not for everybody, and you probably will be out of your comfort zone at times. You need to have a beginner level of outdoor experience to join this training. You can learn a lot, including about yourself. There is also time for fun and moments that you can relax. We run these courses year-round, north of the Arctic Circle in the north of Norway.
Lofoten OUTDOOR TRIPS 2021
If you would like to explore the Lofoten Islands in the north of Norway, then these outdoor trips are something to consider. We go back-to-the-basics and visit places where hardly people come. Rather you prefer a road trip where you sleep in a cozy cabin or an expedition adventure with challenges, we have everything you need. These travels are organised almost every month in 2021. Read all about it.

snowshoeing and hiking expedition (NEW!)
We are very excited about this new expedition in Arctic Norway! Imagine exploring trails that are hardly visited during wintertime. This spot known for its frozen rivers, waterfalls and pure wilderness. We travel through the coastal areas of Steigen, wild nature with steep mountains and the fjords. Here we do multi-day hike with sleds and snowshoes through winter landscapes. We take our expedition tents with us, and we also visit some remote cabins. This trip is tough at times, has some challenges and rewards.
