Before we go to Norway it is important that you have a chance to practice your expedition skills. We will be splitting into groups and completing practice expeditions on foot in Norfolk.

You won't have a leader walking with you but we will be dropping in to check on your progress at various points along the route and at your campsites.

There will be no cost for this weekend.

If you are not coming to Norway you are still welcome to join us for the practice expeditions.

Please sign up to this event ASAP to indicate your availability. We will then arrange the groups and plan routes.
