About the event

A beginners-hike in the beautiful wintery forest, plus a warm bonfire with hot tea and a sweet treat, and the opportunity to ask an Olympic Biathlete all of your questions about enjoying winter outdoors in Norway? Sounds like a lovely Sunday morning to us!

The 1.5-hour session is geared toward beginners who don't have much experience with winter outdoor activities. We'll cover everything from selecting the right winter wear to understanding essential equipment, various winter activities, outdoor etiquette, and safety. Plus, you get to meet other internationals in Oslo! 

There will be a 20-minute walk from the meeting spot to the bonfire where we'll sit and talk, and then a 20-minute walk back to the meeting point. This immersive crash course is led by Andrea Nahrgang Imbsen, a professional ski instructor, founder of XP Coaching, and Olympic Biathlete. Andrea will share her extensive knowledge and answer all of your winter-related questions!  

What we suggest you bring with you*:

  • Dress in warm, layered clothing, ideally wool, to stay comfortable
  • Sitting mat ('sitteunderlag')
  • Thermos with something warm
  • • Wear sturdy shoes suited for snow and ice conditions (snow boots, strap-on spikes, or winter shoes with gaiters)
  • Sled, if you want to use it after the session

*If you don't have all this gear, no worries! This is an introductory session with a short walk outdoors, and you'll have the opportunity to learn more about what kind of equipment or clothing you'll need for future activities.

We hope this will be just the beginning of your winter adventure in Norway!

Tickets cost 50kr to reserve your spot and include hot tea and a small, sweet snack, as well as help cover the costs of the bonfire. Members of Unlock Oslo get 20% off.
