The vastness, the silence, the mosquitoes, the rushing waterfalls, the moors, rain and cold and the feeling when the sun shines on you at 4 o'clock in the morning - all this is hard to imagine when you arrive in busy Trondheim. This vibrant student town with its typical Norwegian colourful wooden houses, right on the fjord where we always start our expedition course.
And where in the middle of July 2019 nine participants gathered for the expedition course Sylan Mountains. Or rather for the briefing with herring buffet in the old town of Trondheim. What followed, after the transfer picked us up the next morning, were 7 days in the Scandinavian wilderness, cross-country through birch forests, on barren plains, over snowfields and over lakes. Along quiet rivers and through single whitewater passages, for which we dragged our helmets a long way, but the broad grin after whitewater in expedition style rewarded us.
Einen kleinen Ausschnitt der Tour zwischen den kalten und regnerischen ersten zwei Tagen und einem traumhaften Sonnenaufgang auf einem windstillen See am letzten Morgen soll diese Bildergalerie zeigen. Einfach das Bild anklicken und die Galerie durch schauen:
On a cold, dark winter's day Sebastian might write down all the big and small stories in between. Or you simply come with us, the date for the next tour in 2020 is here already online.
Außerdem ist während des diesjährigen Packrafting Expeditionskurses ein Video voller Eindrücke aus der Wildnis entstanden:
However, we would like to share a story here: It was course leader Sebastian's had during the 7 days birthday and that could not be kept secret. How the group arranged the day, speaks for the people, who come with us into the adventures. From the coffee and a liquorice bar to the day start up to the Mousse au Chocolat in the evening in mosquito nets this day will remain unforgotten to him.
Sebastian, leader of the expedition and basically satisfied as long as there is enough water and chocolate. More about Sebastian can also be found here.
