TRAVELS, COURSES & EXPEDITIONS
Here are our plans for this month. August has usually calm weather and it is a great period to explore nature. The first hours of darkness arrive and you can enjoy the colours of nature in daytime. It is a great time to go out fishing, tenting on remote islands or explore fjords with our kayaks. In the end of August we might get a glimpse of the northern lights. If you like to harvest food from nature, then August offers all kinds of berries that are waiting to be picked.
Here are the outdoor travels that we plan to do this month. You can join these trips if you are basic-fit. Contact us if you want to have advice on which trip fits you best. The Arctic Circle Adventure is an excellent trip for first-time Norway travellers, and you will do a lot of different outdoor activities. If you like a great combination of sea-kayaking and (mountain) hiking, choose the Vestfjord adventure. If you want to do long-distance hiking with some challenges through various landscapes, look at the trip where we hike across Norway to Sweden on foot.
EXPEDITIONS (more tougher trips)
If you are in for a bit tougher trips with more adventure (uncertainties) and challenges, look at the expeditions this month. The Lofoten expedition is back this month if you like discover the less visited places (and more hard-to-get) of this famous destination. You can discover the real Lofoten with us. If you like to get away from civilization and explore pure nature, then the 3 National Parks expedition is a great choice. A fantastic hiking trip to a variety of landscapes. If you are attracted to more extended periods in the mountains with some physical challenges, then the Brennvik Massif expedition might be the one you are looking for. Slow-travelling surrounded by jig-saw shaped mountains. Learn some skills in hiking the higher altitudes!

picking berries in NORWAY (TRAILER)
August is the best month for picking berries in Norway. Blueberries, cloudberries, raspberries, lingonberries and some more are there in massive quantities. We love to pick those wild berries and you can join us. But some species are hard to find. We eat them, dry them or make marmalade and your can bring some home. Watch the movie and get in the mood!
