The Wilderness Camp is a trip into Norway’s pristine nature and a journey to yourself. A nature retreat without distraction: we live in the here and now and take time for self exploration. Nature can provoke questions, give new insights or even trigger real change. Find out for yourself what nature has to offer for your self discovery!

Find Your Self

Self Discovery – Self Exploration

With a group of seekers we retreat for a week in the wilds of central Norway. We live in a nature camp, get a part of our food from nature, cook at the campfire and sleep under the open sky, protected only by light tarps. Supported by expert guidance, we will step into the rhythm of nature.

There is no fixed program, we simply follow the natural flow of things. We offer a wide range of options to stimulate your connection to nature, facilitate your self discovery and your self exploration. The week culminates in a 24-hour solo quest in the wilderness outside the camp, the ultimate way to connect with nature and to find yourself.

What you do during the retreat is entirely up to you. You can go exploring on your own, or join others for fishing. Whatever you do, you can be sure that your fellows will support you and that there will be someone to share your experience with. Of course we facilitate exchange and reflection as important means of your self exploration.





Itinerary & Location

The 7-day wilderness camp starts and ends at Trondheim Airport, Central Norway.

In the afternoon of the arrival day the group meets in the airport’s arrival hall. A taxi transfer takes the group to the camp in the wilds.

We spend the full time in the camp and its wilderess surroundings, including a 24-hour solo.

On the day of departure, a transfer takes the group back to Trondheim airport in the morning.

The transfer times correspond with flights from/to Amsterdam.

The course may be subject to changes.

For Whom?

The retreat is designed for adults seeking for answers to personal questions, for self discovery and self exploration.
