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

Three 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. After we meet in Oslo, we’ll spend four days day hiking to get our legs ready for the days to come. Next, we’ll backpack the Aurlandsdalen Trek, on one of Norway’s most famous hiking routes. We’ll finish with sea kayaking through the fjords. We’ll paddle among Norway’s famous fjords, including Nærøyfjord, a World Heritage Site.

"This was my fourth Overland trip and I absolutely loved it. Being in Scandanavia was a new experience for me, and Overland helped me adjust and admire all Norway had to offer. Thank you so much to my leaders and my group for an unforgettable journey. "
