NORWAY

JUNE 23rd - 29th 2019

2018-07-31 12.00.15-1.JPG

WHERE: Åndalsnes is located at the mouth of the river Rauma, at the shores of the Romsdalsfjord, Norway. There is some of the most spectacular scenery in the entire country. From the light playing on the waterfalls, to the boats fishing in the fjords, the rugged and giving mountains, to the Trollveggen (the Troll Wall) one of the cliff formations in the valley that we will be running to the top of, and if we are lucky may see a launch of a BASE jumper

WHAT: Trail Running, hiking, canyoning or white water rafting (depending on water levels), kayaking in an UNESCO fjord, yoga, e-biking, via ferrata (add on), homestyle accomodation all fuelled with fabulous local foods and wines. Run time varies from 1-6 hours and can be adjusted to your ability or needs. Some runs may change depending on weather. Some runs will be slow moving, power hiking, steep, and technical so prepare accordingly. All runs will be measured in time rather than distance due to the vertical +/- and technical aspects of the trails (Always bring a running backpack to bring food, water, and a jacket with you. Please also include snacks and electrolytes as it can get very hot and humid).

DATE: June 23rd - 29th 2019 (Limited to 12 people)
