Get planning

15 – 18 months in advance.

Traditional lavvo tents or indoor cabins!

Most of our groups choose to stay in the traditional lavoo tents already erected and waiting for your arrival. Nestled in a wooded area of the site, with picnic benches, hammocks and a fire pit close-by, these teepee tents give your Scout and Guide group a taste of rural Norwegian life. There’s also the option of small, simple, yet comfortable cabin accommodation which comprises of bunk-bed accommodation with shared facilities across the site.

Food, glorious, food

Self-catering, full-board or perhaps a mix of both? Remember, it’s your trip, your way! You can opt to grab supplies from the local supermarket and use the site’s facilities to cook your own meals. You can opt for TrollAktiv to take care of you and go full-board, giving you more time to enjoy the activities. Or we can arrange for a couple of meals to be catered for, then you can rally together as a group and organise some meals for yourselves. The choice is yours!

Activities and Excursions

TrollAktiv, Norway, has to be the number one choice for water sport lovers as the River Otra provides an incredible setting for a host of water sports. But don’t worry, when you need your feet back on solid ground, there’s still plenty of amazing activities to get stuck into.  

What’s popular with our groups?

TrollAktiv is a great winter option too!

Day 1

Fly to Kristiansand Airport in Norway where you’ll set off on your hour transfer away from the city into the heart of the Norwegian countryside. Settle into your accommodation, explore the site and enjoy an evening meal.  

Day 2

Hit the water and spend the morning stand-up paddleboarding, which includes games, skills, surfing and easy rapids. Get back on dry land and head out on a walk into Evje, the local town, to explore the area or pick up groceries for the week. Then it’s time to relax! 

Day 3

Keep your feet on dry ground today and tackle the rock climbing walls 

Day 4

It’s back to the water this morning as you start the day with a canoe trip down the river. In the afternoon, join one of the TrollAktiv’s experienced instructors on a guided trek through the forests before returning to camp for an evening meal and some time to rest and recoup.  

Day 5

Take a day trip to the local city of Kristiansand where you can explore a true Norwegian city and pick up some souvenirs.

Day 6

Start the day with an exciting morning of ziplining at the High Ropes Park, before grabbing your bows and arrows for an afternoon of archery

Day 7

The highlight of many groups trips to TrollAktiv, it’s time to tackle white water rafting with professional instruction 

Day 8

All good things must come to an end and sadly this is your final morning at TrollAktiv before heading back to Kristiansand Airport to fly home.

This is now the third time I have used Venture Abroad, we visited Kandersteg in 2016 and Iceland in 2023. Venture Abroad are great to deal with, nothing is too much trouble and her expert help and advice is much valued. I would never consider an international trip without Venture Abroad.
