Trysil skiing

The ski centre here is for the young ski rats. The park is always on point and it's hard to find things to complain about. I usually meet happy people on the slopes of Trysil. In 2019, the park was upgraded and I'm surprised how the shapers of the park managed to up their game like they have!

Lofoten arctic surfing

The surfing scene is radical in Lofoten all year around. Unstad beach is used for surfing the whole year. Arctic ice surfing is quite a life goal to achieve. Therefore, you have Americans, Australians, and of course a bunch of Norwegians on the waves. Even the stones on the beach look like waves and you can even skateboard on them. You have the natural ramps and an actual skate ramp in Unstad.

Trolljuv Adrenalinpark

We can know this is spectacular since their catchphrase is ''Negotiate with gravity''. The excitement of a free fall combined with Scandinavian safety is what the Bungee jump gives you. For feeling pure adrenaline, bungee jumping just might be your thing. To be guided professionally by folks who are deeply interested in Extreme sports and don't show you a grim face and wait for you to finish your fun always makes the experience way better. Doing the jump while enjoying the view creates an excitement that will make you enjoy the Norwegian landscape even more.

Snowmobiling in Northern Norway

When driving on the road with the car for a long time I start to wonder, what happens outside of this road where the land is covered in snow? What things are there to find without these restrictive paths secured by fences to not let us escape? The Snowmobile will show you the answer. Going through the inland valleys and up mountains shows you all the parts that you wouldn't see if Joseph-Armand Bombardier didn't exhaust himself during long nights experimenting with the two skis and a sprocket wheel and a track drive system in 1935. All of this led us to this point where we can go on excursions and look at reindeers and ice fish, on a mapped out tour with the snowmobile tours up here in the north of Norway.
