your own responsibility and how to explore the Norwegian nature in a safe way. The trips (hiking, biking, kayaking, skiing and other adventures) described on this website are trips that I myself have experienced, and the descriptions are accordingly. The trips that I have written about are not suitable for everyone, it is important to consider this if you plan to go on any of these trips. Important things that you must consider before you go on these trips are age, your own physical shape, experience and skills in what you are going to do, how locally known you are and how well you know the area you are going to explore, knowledge of and experience with the use of maps and compass, food and drink, clothes, shoes and equipment, the danger of floods, landslides, rock- and snow avalanches, season, ice- and snow conditions, temperature and weather. Always make your own evaluation. Adapt your own risk to your own skills and by choosing where, when and how you travel.
