Norrøna's ambassador Asbjørn Eggebø Næss invites you to a weekend in his own world - you spend the nights in a Norrøna tent in his garden, and are guided by Asbjørn himself and his good friends. Spring is often the best season to experience the outdoors. There are longer days where the contrasts can be pretty hefty. From up to the snow capped mountain tops, down to foamy shores at sea level where it's warm and dry. It’s possible to do activities the whole day while the birds chirp and the smell of spring lingers in the air. Trail/mountain biking and ski touring are at the top of the list, but May's long bright days combined with Romsdalen's varied nature offer great opportunities - and we can try both climbing and water activities such as fishing, SUP or freediving. Not least a refreshing bath followed by a relaxing session in the sauna. Exactly what we do - and when - is determined by the weather and conditions. We start every day with planning, and make full use of the opportunities we have. After full days of activity, Norrøna's ambassador Martin Blom will ensure that we are served a tasty dinner - based on fresh, local ingredients. We eat outdoors if the weather permits, otherwise we have the option of retreating into Asbjørn's boathouse. There will also be time for social activities and good conversations around the bonfire. In addition, we give you the opportunity to test some of the newest products from Norrøna - and some classics too!

Safety and grading of trips

Physical level

3/6 Physical

On these trips, some of the stages are demanding. On level 3 mountain hikes, there are often some long stages, and / or a demanding summit push where it can get cold. You must stand up to reach the goal, and have a good training basis and good health before departure. We sleep in tents and / or in cabins and hotels, but you do not have to have experience with tent life to participate. If the trip includes activities such as kayaking, cycling, climbing, glacier, skiing / mountaineering, it is an advantage to have experience with this activity.

Activities and level

On this trip there will be a maximum of 14 participants and 3 guides. This way we have great flexibility, and can do our activities in small groups. The main activities will be trail/mountain biking and ski touring on skis/splitboards.

The level of these activities will be intermediate - that is, you must have some previous experience with both of these activities, and you must be in good enough physical shape to be able to take part in several activities every day. A typical day might be to eat an early breakfast, go skiing or splitboarding in the morning, then lunch and then trail biking in the afternoon. Sauna and coziness in the evening, and a good dinner of course.

The climbing and the water activities are just as much an opportunity to test something new, so here you don't necessarily need any previous experience. The climbing can for example be sport climbing or bouldering, and we will adapt the activity according to the weather, conditions and participants. If you have climbing shoes, bring these with you.

We can do water activities right at our base. We have wetsuits for loan, but you must bring your own diving mask/snorkel/flippers.

Accommodation and food

We have our base in Romsdalen, close to the town of Molde, at the humble abode of Norrøna Ambassador Asbjørn Eggebø Næss (his house and garden). This place of his is a pearl - located in the middle of the surrounding montains, and at the same time right on the shore.


You will be sleeping in Norrøna tents in the garden (no need to bring your own tent, we will provide this, but please bring a sleeping bag and mat). We can take a shower in the outdoor shower or a refreshing bath in the fjord.

All meals as mentioned in the program is included, and we eat in al fresco - either out on the go, or at our base. However, if the weather is too bad, we will provide a temporary roof over your heads, or move into the boathouse for dinner. Norrøna Ambassador Martin Blom will be in charge of providing mouthwatering dinners consisting of the freshest, local ingredients, right by the bonfire.

And, if you’re tired muscles are up for it in the evening, it is also possible to enjoy a sauna session or two. 

Practical information

It is practical to drive your own car, especially if you are going to bring both skis and bike. It is also possible to take a bus or plane. Asbjørn's place - and our base for the weekend, is situated 15 minutes by car from Molde Airport, Årø.

If you fly to Molde, you can take a bus or taxi from the airport (if many people are coming on the same flight, a pick-up can be arranged). It is also possible to take a bus to Molde. Attendance is set for 6pm, Thursday 11th of May 2023. It is also possible to arrive later in the evening if it is not possible to arrive at 6.

The trip ends on Sunday 14th of May 2023 at 4/5pm. If you are going to book a flight, departure should be 7pm at the earliest. If you take a bus, departure should be no earlier than 6pm.

Local transport around the area - all activities are within 30-60 minutes by car from our base. The guides have cars (and can transport bikes), and have room for somem people if they travel by plane or bus. Those who come with their own car drive themselves.
