our Mission, DNA, Passion & love
SNOWSHOEING across the arctic NORWAY
explore with pulks (2021/2022)
We are very excited about this new multi-day snowshoeing and hiking trip in the north of Norway! Imagine exploring hardly visited trails during wintertime with pulks. And it is all happening in an area known for its frozen rivers, valleys, 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. A course about modifying pulks (sleds) is included! This trip is organized every month in the period December - April.
THE BRENNVIK MASSIF SUMMER EXPEDITION
Beginner level mountaineering (summer 2022)
The Brennvik Expedition is our great 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!
ARCTIC SURVIVAL and safety TRAINING
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.
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. If you prefer a road trip where you sleep in a cozy cabin, choose our Discover the nature of the Lofoten Islands trip. If you want a more rough experience and an expedition adventure with challenges, choose the Lofoten Islands Outdoor Adventure. We have everything you need. These travels are organised almost every month in 2021. Read all about it.
YOUTH ARCTIC OUTDOOR SUMMER CAMP
