One night in the outdoors

As simple as it sounds. Spend one night in the wilderness in a safe environment. Learn about the living forest and its wildlife. Fall asleep in a tent, a hammock or directly on the ground while watching the stars. Wake up as the sun rises and the forest birds sing.



Oslo is arguably the adventure travel capital of Europe with its unique location. Close to the city you’ll find deep forests with lakes, rivers and a rich wildlife, ideal for canoeing, biking, running, hiking and wilderness adventures. Within 90 minutes drive from the city you can hike in high mountain areas or go sea-kayaking in one of Norway’s most beautiful archipelagos. These areas are still undiscovered gems for adventure travelers from around the world.

The air is clean. The water is clean. The area is safe.

Try Oslo as your next adventure travel destination. We promise that you will not be disappointed.

Attached to Nature

Norwegians are closely attached to nature. Through ancient traditions of outdoor life the concept of friluftsliv, which literally translates to free living, has developed. It is hard to define friluftsliv, but any Norwegian will know what it means. It is what attach us to nature. Learn more about traditional outdoor life and what you should be aware of if you opt for a Norwegian wilderness adventure.
