Trekking associations and clubs are open to membership for all, and have the objective of arranging for active, simple outdoor leisure activities where care of and for the environment is a central theme. Outdoor leisure activities means just what it says – one uses leisure time for physical activities in the great outdoors, which may include activities such as hiking and trekking, boating, ski trips and cycling in the beauty of the Norwegian countryside.
As member of a club or association you will have many opportunities to participate in exciting trips with social experiences and not least to enrich your knowledge of flora and fauna. The clubs arrange many walks in the Norwegian landscape during the course of a year, some with overnight stays. Tours are led by experienced guides, who have planned and arranged everything in advance. The Norwegian associations and clubs also arrange a number of courses that all are invited to participate in. Such courses include climbing, map & compass training and of course, first aid.
