Norway Expedition

Two weeks of deep fjords and big mountains.

Hike, backpack, and sea kayak in Norway.

Norway’s got it all – incredible landscapes, a fascinating culture, and some of the most stunning kayaking and hiking on the planet.

After we meet in Oslo, we’ll head north towards Maurvangen, a small town right outside one of Norway’s largest national parks. In Maurvangen we’ll camp, hike and explore some of the most spectacular day hikes Norway has to offer.

From here, we’ll head to Voss to sea kayak through the fjords. Working with professional guides, we’ll learn basic paddling skills before heading out on our three-day trip. We’ll paddle among Norway’s famous fjords, hiking on the second day to look back on just how far we’ve come. We’ll cook together each night with our guides, enjoying Norway’s 24-hour summer light.

We finish with a backpacking trip through Jotunheimen National Park. In one of Norway’s most popular national parks, we’ll enjoy panoramic views from some of Norway’s highest mountains. Our sense of camaraderie will be strong now, and we’ll be at our best as we finish the trek over one of Norway’s most popular locations, the Besseggen Ridge.

Back in Oslo, we will reflect on the things we’ve accomplished and the friends we’ve made. There will be stories to tell, and we’ll know that when we head home, this journey will stay with us forever. Having spent time in such a unique place, with people that we’ve come to rely on, our need to explore will continue to grow.
