Chapter Event - Norway - Expedition Finse 2016

Expedition Finse is Norway´s annual expedition festival, taking place at Finse 1222. The location is only accessible by skis - or train from Oslo or Bergen - and the surroundings resemble an Arctic landscape. Our aim is to create a meeting place for people interested in expeditions. The festival is devoted to anyone who have been or are planning to go on expedition, and anyone interested in polar and expedition history. We welcome established explorers as well as those that simply want to learn more about outdoor life and activities. It is also a great opportunity to experience real Norwegian winter.

Expedition Finse was officially opened for the first time by then Norwegian Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg. During the first five annual festivals we have been visited by a range of enthusiastic and knowledgeable adventurers and explorers - Børge Ousland, Ragnar Kvam Jr, Stein P Aasheim, Randi Skaug, Leo Houlding, Aleksander Gamme, Rune Gjeldnes, Seb Coulthard and many more. The annual Shackleton Award is presented. For those not afraid of the cold, Camp Framheim outside, managed by our expedition partner Yourway, adds to the polar ambience. Outdoor activities, workshops, incredible surroundings and a great gathering of expedition people makes this an unforgettable event which we look forward to the entire year.

Expedition Finse 2016 takes place 12th to 14th February. Save the date, book your stay and follow our Facebook page and website for updated programs and news. Please contact the Norway Chapter if you are interested in attending at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).
