We Welcome Your Application to Join Us!

We build each of our groups with care, keeping the groups small (no more than twelve students), and paying close attention to age, grade, gender, and the mix of hometowns and schools. Our goal is to put together great groups — groups where nice kids thrive in a supportive, wholesome, and caring environment. Please note: availability as shown is based on students traveling without a friend; if your child is interested in traveling with a friend, please call our office for availability.

Norway Explorer

Two weeks in Norway, a country of remarkable natural beauty.

The Land of the Midnight Sun

In a country where the summer sun never quite sets, we’ll explore Norway’s trails by foot and fjords by kayak.

Norway’s got it all: breathtaking landscapes, friendly people, a fascinating culture, and some of the most stunning summer hiking there is.

After we meet in Bergen, we’ll spend two days day hiking and get our legs ready for the days to come.

Next, we’ll backpack the Aurlandsdalen, on one of Norway’s classic hiking routes. The locals are adamant that there are trolls along this route – we’ll just have to see for ourselves! Our sense of camaraderie will be strong now, and we’ll be at our best as we enjoy the beauty of Norway’s landscape on our trek together.

We’ll finish with sea kayaking through the fjords. On our three-day trip, we’ll paddle among Norway’s famous fjords, including Nærøyfjord, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. We’ll cook together each night with our guides, enjoying Norway’s 24-hour summer light.

Back in Bergen, 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 care about, our desire to explore will continue to grow.
