    Hébergement

    Camping
    A fantastic way to connect to the natural environment. Norwegian campsites are always clean, well located and usual amenities (hot shower fees between €1 and €4 per shower). We provide you with all technical camping equipment. Please note that it is not possible to reserve campsites in advance and a fee of around €10 per person is normally charged. Also, wild camping is legal in Norway as long as you are at least 100m away from the nearest houses.
    Sjøhus - Rorbu or Hotel Accommodation
    Rorbus are comfortable traditional houses used by fishermen from January to April. One house suits 2 to 4 people and includes kitchen and bathroom facilities.
    Please note that in the wilder regions of Norway, accommodation is scarce and often small. Moreover, the beautiful summer season is short (about two months) making it difficult to find places to stay during the summer. Despite a permanent effort in the choice of accommodation, the level of comfort and equipment provided remains variable.
    If you would like to stay in hotel or rorbu accommodation please contact us.

    Déplacement et portage

    To hire a vehicle you will need a valid drivers liscence, issued for a minimum of 12 months. Minimum age: 19 (or 25 for vehicle categories E, I, K & L).

    Budget et change

    The currency is the Norwegian Krone (kr)

    Pourboire

    Although the custom is not widespread here, if you are satisfied with the services of your local team, tipping is always appreciated - it is not obligatory and should be left to the discretion of each individual.
  • Equipements

    If you choose the camping option, we will supply you with quality tents and technical camping gear.
    • A sleeping bag (comfort 0°C for camping)
    • A thinner sleeping bag or sleeping bag liner is recommended for nights in rorbus
    • Sunglasses (high quality protection)
    • A wind and waterproof jacket (breathable, sealed seams)
    • Suitable underwear, t-shirts and walking trousers
    • Hiking boots (high-rise, strudy soles)
    • Warm jumper(s) and jacket(s)
    • Sun cream

    • Any personal medication
    • Towel & toiletries
    • A thermos/suitable water bottle(s)
    We prefer that you do not wear cotton clothing, including underwear, when participating in activities. When cotton gets wet from water or sweat it ceases to insulate and it does not dry fast. The best materials for outdoor activities are fast drying materials like polyester or materials which are warm when wet like wool. The most powerful materials against the wind and rain are 'breathable' materials like Gore-Tex or Nikwax.
    Our advice for keeping warm
    Winter in Norway can be very cold, please think carefully about what clothes you bring, although we will provide warm outer layers, the layers you wear next to your skin make the biggest difference. We recommend:
    • No cotton
    • Bring dry spares of everything, even underwear and gloves
    • Wear multiple layers including:
      1. A warm breathable base layer
      2. A second thermal layer
      3. Wind and waterproof protective out layer (we provide an additional quality jacket and over trousers.
    You may also consider packing
    • A pair of comfortable shoes for evenings in towns
    • Waterproof trousers
    • Your swim stuff
    • Walking poles
    • Tupperware and cutlery for picnics
    • Extra layers
    • Wetwipes
    • Blister plasters
    • A suitable camera
    • Plastic bags for wet/dirty clothing
    • Tissues
    • Toilet paper & a lighter

    Baggages

    Please bring a small rucksack to use as a day bag. You can bring this as hand luggage on the aeroplane. You will carry your lunch, water, spare layers and any personal medication with you each day in this bag. You will also need a larger bag to store your other clothes and belongings in, please ensure that this is a soft bag like a rucksack or holdall rather than a hard cased suitcase because it is more practical to transport. We recommend packing all of your clothes in plastic bags so that they stay dry in the event of wet weather.

    Pharmacie

    We recommend that you bring your medications: 
    • Personal medication
    • Anti pain medication Paracetamol 
    • Diarrhoea drugs 
    • Intestinal dressing

    • Eye drops for the eyes 
    • Moisturizing cream for the treatment of superficial burns (blisters and sunburns) 
    • An adhesive elastic banda box of adhesive plasters and disinfectant compresses

You can check your requierements on the website provided by the Norwegian government: www.udi.no/en/word-definitions/persons-who-do-not-need-a-visa-to-visit-norway-/#link-709

    Visa

    Most travellers of EU states do not need a VISA to visit Norway, as Norway is part  of the Schengen agreement. This does not apply to travellers of other nations.

You can check the following web site of the Norwegian government: www.udi.no/en/word-definitions/persons-who-do-not-need-a-visa-to-visit-norway-/#link-709

    Vaccins

    There are no specific health risks.
  • Météo

    In winter, the weather in Northern Norway is subject to frequent changes. This part of Norway, the Arctic Zone, benefits from a surprisingly pleasant micro climate. At a latitude of 68° North and 300km North of the Arctc Circle, summer here is relatively mild with average temperatures of around 14°C (57°F). However, it is humid and does rain regularly. Good quality (breathable with sealed seams) rain clothing, jacket and trousers are paramount.
    Keep in mind this Norwegian proverb when packing: 'There is no bad weather, only bad clothing'

    Electricité

    In Norway, the standard Europlug (Type C & F) with two round prongs is used and most of Scandinavia uses 220 volts.
