Based on 30 students travelling with 3 free teacher places
Set with a backdrop of fjords, forests and mountains, Norway is an unforgettable destination and the perfect place for a resilience trip. With the help of the stunning setting, the attitude and culture of the locals, the fantastic accommodation and the activities planned, we have designed a trip that aims to develop positive mentality, self-esteem, self-confidence and enhance skills such as problem solving, team work and leadership.
Our itineraries are fully bespoke, so you can design a trip that is perfect for you and your students. If you want to combine a resilience itinerary, like this one, with a geography or science trip then speak to your travel specialist to begin planning your next tour.
Ensuring the safety of you and your students is our number one priority. You can check out our COVID assurance, which details the extra safety measures we have in place, as well as how we plan to protect your students' money.
Team building at Hardangertun Holiday Park
As you fly into Bergen, the second largest city in Norway, you will be able to understand why Bergen is known as the “City of Seven Mountains”. As you drive out of the city you will be able to take in the colourful buildings and epic backdrop.
You will head straight to your home for your trip, Hardangertun Holiday Park. Hardangertun Holiday Park has been carefully chosen for its great location and activity hub. Its mini village-like layout and peaceful setting allows students to gain independence in a safe environment. Hardangertun Holiday Park’s initiatives include students preparing their own food, promoting a sense of responsibility.
Your students will dive right into the action and participate in a team building activity. Designed to get students working together ahead of their week of activities, this challenge will also get students fully immersed in the Norwegian great outdoors.
Canoeing on the Fjord and Via Ferrata with Zip lining
Hardangertun is at the at the shore of Hardangerfjord, the third longest fjord in the world.
To get to know the fjord a little better, students will take to the crystal clear waters to try their hand at canoeing. As well as being a great activity to work together to overcome challenge, students will also get to view the local flora and fauna, and may even spot some local reindeer!
Following on the theme of overcoming challenge and building confidence, next students will head to the forest to try something new; via ferrata climbing. Translating to “the iron path”, the metal rungs will allow them to safely climb up natural rockface. During this activity students are connected to each other by climbing equipment. This encourages students to stay in constant communication and support one another by passing down advice.
Your climb will finish with a burst of adrenaline. You will see the forest from a new height with an exciting zip wire experience.
Husedalen Valley Hike
There is a Norwegian saying “Ut på tur, aldri sur” which means that you will never be unhappy when you are in nature. Day 3 will test that theory, as students take on the stunning Husedalen Valley Hike.
Following the Kinso river valley upstream from the fjord at Kinsarvik, students will take in the epic views. They will pass 4 waterfalls which cascade from the Hardangervidda National Park, Norway’s largest National Park.
Folgefonna National Park with Snow Shoeing on the Glacier
Entering day 4, the action does not slow as you hike Norway’s third largest glacier in Folgefonna National Park. Any geographers on the trip will be wowed by the scale of the moving ice sheet.
You will also witness the fjord you have called home for the past few days from a new angle, as you take in the views of Hardangerfjord, Hargandervidda plateau and the North Sea.
Your students have certainly challenged themselves over the last few days and now is the time to reflect on what they have taken away from these memorable experiences.
We are pleased to share that we can also offer our reflective journal to all students booking an itinerary like this, to give students a place to record their thoughts and feelings as they reflect on the last few days.
