One night in the outdoors

Season: All year

As simple as it sounds. Spend one night in the outdoors and learn about the living forest and traditional Norwegian outdoor life. A great experience especially for those unfamiliar with outdoor life. Around the fire in the evening we’ll enjoy a decent meal. Fall asleep in a hammock or a tent while you watch the stars and the city lights in the distance. Most prefer to sleep under open air if weather permits. After breakfast it is back to civilization again. An easy accessible and very special wilderness adventure.

What we do on this tour:

We will meet you at your hotel or another agreed pick-up point in Oslo in the late afternoon, normally at 16.00h. in the summer and 15.00h. in winter. From there we will drive for about 20 minutes before we do an easy hike for a few kilometers to one of the viewpoints/sites we use for this tour.

When there, we arrange a fire out in the open and prepare a decent, traditional Norwegian meal. Around the fire your guide will explain some basics about sleeping outside and Norwegian outdoor life in general. You will also learn about the living forest we are in and the wildlife that inhabit the area.

When it is time to sleep you can choose between a tent, a hammock between the trees or simply lay your sleeping mat on the ground and sleep there.

Falling asleep among the trees while gazing at the stars from a warm and comfortable sleeping bag is a truly remarkable experience that you will remember for a long time. In the morning you’ll wake up as the sun rises and the birds start singing. Your guide will prepare coffee and breakfast.

After breakfast we return to the car for transport back to the centre of Oslo again.
