ITINERARY

WHAT, WHERE & WHEN

Day 1:

Arrive at Trondheim Airport where a transfer will be waiting for you. The drive will take approximately 1 hour to the start of the hike where you'll get to know your guides Petter and Geir. Petter is an ex Norwegian Special Forces serviceman turned Polar Guide. His expeditions span much of the Arctic North inspiring him to set up Hotel Spruce with Geir Vie. Geir is a rugged outdoorsman having spent much of his life in nature as a farmer, craftsman and expedition leader. Together with Petter, the pair offer Hotel Spruce as an active but relaxed introduction into hiking and expeditions. Their experience and ability to bring the adventure to life will be memorable and inspire you with confidence in nature.

Your trip begins with a chat and briefing over a cup of strong coffee around the fire before you set off through beautiful Ovre Forra nature reserve. You'll carry some of your own gear and stop on the way at some Sami cultural heritage sites. The hike will last for about one hour after which you'll find the location of Hotel Spruce where you'll set up camp. Dinner with dessert will be prepared as the sun falls and the evening sets in.

Day 2:

Your night under canvas will be cosy and warm on top of mattresses and reindeer skin. You'll awaken to the smell of coffee brewed over the bonfire. Your guides will be busy preparing breakfast whilst you take your time to get up. After breakfast, you'll enjoy a hike learning from your guides as you go. Petter and Geir will tell you all about supplements in the wild that can be used for cooking as you forage for wild herbs and berries. In the afternoon you can choose between fishing, canoeing or to do some more hiking in the mountains. This evening's dinner will be inspired by Trondelag's rich larder of wild foods.

Day 3:

Your hiking and outdoor adventure continues as you enjoy more activities and wilderness skills.

Day 4:

Today you'll have a relaxed pace as you pack up and return to Trondheim and bid farewell to Petter and Geir. If you wish this trip can be customised to your preferences with additional nights, activities and for private groups and school groups.
