Something wonderful happens when you sleep in the nature.

No matter if you just go to the backcountry and set up a base camp or if you traverse great distances and find a new lakeside home each night, being surrounded by nature without interruption sets a transformation in motion. You tune in to the micro sounds around you – the semi-dry leaves on the bushes shuffling in the wind, mother sheep calling to their lambs halfway up the mountain, and – in a word – the world.

You tap into the part of the human DNA that instinctively knows how to live without plugging in and living inside four walls. 


We would like to offer a few key guidelines for those camping on their own without a local guide.

Leave no trace.
Take every single piece of trash you create back with you, and burn all toilet paper instead of stuffing it in the nature. 

Inform someone of where you plan to camp and how long you plan to be away,

Do not camp  on (or walk on) farmers' bright green grass fields.

Carry and turn on a VHF radio, if you will be within sight of a fjord or the sea. If you will be deep in a valley, carry a satellite phone.

Protect yourself in the unlikely yet unwanted situation of a bear encounter. Take bear spray and flares, and have easy access to any loud noise makers, like your cooking pots.
