Norway is a stunningly beautiful destination for a DofE expedition, The home of lakes, mountains and forest it is ideally suited to a multi disciplined expedition.
Our expedition is based in the south of Norway on a remote mountainous plateau with internal fjords, Boats, transport and back-up safety cover are provided by an in-country agent which ensures high standards throughout. The choice of area ensures we get the best of the weather, are not impacted by the flies and the tides and have a superb safety net at all times whilst giving the participants a feeling of real isolation in a challenging environment.
The expedition starts with a two and a half day crossing of the Setesdal mountains, not particularly high or steep but remote and rough with challenging navigation and wild camping. On day three we come down from the mountains to the top of a long internal fjord where the canoes will be waiting for us. Paddling this non tidal and slowly flowing fjord filled with crystal clear water and surrounded by steeply rising mountains on all sides takes a further two days. On the way we will camp on beautiful sandy beaches only accessible by boat.
This is a truly magical journey that will provide the participants with once in a lifetime experience.
