Introduction dives! The mountains that shape the famous fjords often not emerge from sea-level. Underneath the surface the mountainous landscapes continues. For people that like to do the first dive of their lives, we organise introduction dives in northern Norway. After a short theoretical class we take you to the often crystal-clear under water world of Norway. Your first dive is not gonna be very deep and your instructor is taking care of you. On your first dive you will probably see all kinds of fish, colorful anemones, crabs, sea-urchins and shells. Is this a step to deep for you, then go snorkelling with us! Contact us for booking or to answer the questions you might have.
In June we start our first mountain hiking expedition. A 9-day trip with a focus on exploring the Brennvik massif in northern Norway. We will do multi-day backpacking and sleeping in tents in valleys and high in the mountains. The destination is absolute off-the-beaten-track and offers great views of the fjords and typical Norwegian scenery. We do this adventurous expedition every month during the summer and you can join if you do not have a fear of height (or if you want to get rid of that. We also use kayaks to get a different perspective and to add some extra fun. Check the details of this great trip.

The period of the midnight sun is coming. What is it? It is an phenomenon you can only experience north of the Arctic Circle and it stands for: endless days... So, from the end of May until the end of July there will be no darkness and the sun never goes under the horizon. Extremely cool! And that is something you have to experience. Sure it will mess up your internal clock, but it gives you a lot of outdoor opportunities in the middle of the night.
Join one of our trips in June or July to experience the midnight sun.
"When is the best time to pick berries in Norway", is a question that we often get. The answer is August and most of them are easy to find. Also the second half of July is a pretty good time but for some kinds it might be too early. The amounts are massive. So here is what you can find during one of our trips in northern Norway. Cloudberries (see picture), Arctic blueberries (one of the most common), lingonberries, wild strawberries (small and sweet), raspberries, cranberries, redcurrants and blackcurrants. In Norway berries are also often eaten with traditional meat or fish dishes. Join us and let us hunt these small delicateses.
