Location

The Norwegian winter lasts nine months. Through the course of the year there is a wild fluctuation from no light at all, to nothing but. In a land of such extremes there are natural challenges that run alongisde the savage beauty. All that exists to be enjoyed there has to be earned too; testing conditions like these, no doubt, lend themselves to the adventurous, travelling spirit of the Norse and keep other prospectors out.
