Scandinavian Backpacking - Prime

This expedition will take you to the Arctic, the wilderness north of the Arctic Circle in Norway and Sweden. You will travel on open tundra in 24-hour daylight on one of oldest mountain ranges of the world, the Scandes. You'll spend your days honing your outdoor skills in fast changing arctic weather, practicing leadership, and learning about Scandinavian culture. If you’re ready to spend long days near the Arctic circle, challenge yourself with backpacking in unique glacier formed terrain and connect with a group of your adventurous peers, then this is the course for you.
