This is not like our other short courses. You will be training under the direction of our Survival Guide and Beastmasters. They will set you missions, objectives and tasks, and expect you to complete them as a unit without moaning or making problems - if you have problems the whole point is to solve and overcome them.
So, are we ready? Are you sure? Really? Ok then, gear up and let's go!
Norway is a stunning place. Winters here are beautiful, but let's get clear. It looks pretty, if you follow our guides its a wonderful adventure to experience it, people fantasise about it, but if you mess up -20C in the snow with another 10K to cover on foot is very unforgiving.

This course is not suitable for anyone who is medically unfit or has injuries that prevent strenuous exercise.
This course is suitable for people who are attracted by the idea of being woken up at 5am by a drill sergeant, hiking in -20C, having a beasting and rapidly training to perform a range of amazing stunts normally only completed by highly trained professionals.
During this course you will be briefed on risks and required to self-manage in a number of challenging training activities. While we admire anyone who pushes themselves hard, at ALL TIMES, the team will be responsible for each other. We finish together or everyone fails. That includes identifying early warning signs of fatigue, hypothermia or anything that puts you or a team mate at risk. IF we have to we improvise a sling . stretcher and carry them. Nobody's left behind.
