Wildland Trekking Adventure
Wildland trekking adventure in the vastness of Norway’s forests and highlands. What counts is being on the way, not reaching a destination. The open encounter with nature in a circle of men. Friluftsliv – living in the wild – how the Norwegians call it.
The vast forests and highlands of inland Norway don’t set any limits for a trekking adventure without place or destination. We just set out, let ourselves drift spontaneously along the patterns of the landscape and the natural rythm of the days. Rest and move on. Curiously welcoming what opens up to us. Consciously engaging with nature. Attentively enjoying the here and now.
We will be moving in light pine forests, interspersed with moors and watercourses in the valleys. On treeless plateaus and on mountain tops, the ‘fjell’ with clear lakes and panoramic views. On old connecting trails, a few forest roads, and most often in pathless terrain. We will be taken care of – we will find shelter, have a warming fire and fresh drinking water, and occasionally catch fish from the pristine lakes.
Where we feel invited to stay, we set up camp in the evening. We set up our sleeping places and the fireplace under light tarpaulins as needed. We cook and eat together at the campfire. The fireplace in the the wilds is at the core of our men’s circle, of our community.
