Your students choose activities from any of the following phases:

Trekking

The Setesdal Valley

2 - 5 days

Carrying all your kit and equipment, navigate your way through the wilderness of the Setesdal Valley, over hills, in forests and through rivers.

2 - 5 days

Wild camping along the way really gets you immersed in the awe-inspiring surroundings.

Rest & Relaxation

Spend the night in a traditional Norwegian Lavvo

Sleep in a traditional Norwegian Lavvo as you prepare your kit for a self-sufficient trek in the Setesdal Valley.

Rest & Relaxation

Canadian canoeing on the Otra River

Head out for two days' paddling on the Otra River, wild camping on the river bank at night. This is an amazing way to see the landscape and, if you keep your eyes peeled, you may be lucky enough to see beaver, elk or an elusive golden eagle.

Norway is a true adventurer's destination with self-sufficient, self-guided trekking, rock climbing, rafting and my favourite – Canadian canoeing.
