Summer in Norway means long days, short nights, and often quite stable and pleasant temperatures both on land and at sea. In other words: it’s the perfect season to be outdoors. The Norwegian passion for being outdoors has a name: 'friluftsliv', which can best be described as anything to do with the ‘outdoor life’ and connecting with Mother Nature on both a physical and spiritual level. You go ashore in small groups with your own expedition team to explore and get even closer to nature. See Norway through the eyes of the Norwegian-born expedition team members, and enjoy learning more about subjects such as the the wildlife, history, geology, and culture of Norway in an entertaining and informal way. The purpose of our activities is not only to present interesting lectures and impart facts, but to share with you the pleasure in the outdoor activity itself.   We seek to share with you the joy of living in the moment during our activities, perhaps while sitting around a crackling campfire; hiking a beautiful trail; or even just by enjoying a cup of coffee or tea with expedition team members and other guests, surrounded by Norwegian summer and its incredible nature.
