Surf Trip to Stadt
Do you picture Norway as a country for surfing on water? Did not think so! That is why our organized surfing trip to Hoddevik is so popular among the international students. We go there by car and sleep over at two typical Norwegian houses. The students can make their own Norwegian breakfast before they meet the surfing trainers for some theory and some practice at the beach. The surroundings are like a Norwegian postcard; wonderful, green nature and mountains with sheep running around, panorama, view of the beach and the ocean, and the sunset in the evenings makes Hoddevik even more magical than a postcard from the Mediterranean Sea!
Once a semester, we send over 50 student to the stunning islands of Lofoten on a 6-day trip.. The trip itself takes 16 hours by bus! Students get to row a viking ship, have a tour in a replica of a real viking house at its originallocation, taste viking food and try on viking helmets and armors.The students live in small, cosy, red “rorbuer”(cabins) by the fjords, with a view over the amazing mountains shooting through the water. We arrange a biking trip for the students as well as two hikes. The first one being for beginners, while the other one heads off to “Hells peak” (666 meters) - a very dangerous route! Then, 20-30 participants usually join each other in running into the ice-cold water, at what is actually a beautiful, sandy beach with turquoise waters! At the beach the participants taste local food like dried fish and “tran”(fish oil). At nighttime we arrange a dinner for them with a quiz, and the party takes over from that point onwards! Usually, some people end up having a night bath around 4-5AM! On our way back from this 5-day trip, we stop at the Arctic Circle Center.

Geiranger is the crowning glory among Norway's fjord district's pearls of natural beauty. Majestic, snow-covered mountain peaks, beautiful and wild waterfalls, lush, green vegetation and the deep blue waters of the fjord - yes, it really is like something taken from a fairy tale.
