7. Athletic Adventures:
Travellers are spending more than ever on transforming their bodies while they’re away.
Some people travel to practise their favourite sports in a new destination. Cycling, running, yoga, tennis, swimming – the list goes on. Others travel to conquer a challenge, be it taking a sport to an extreme level or trying something for the first time.
Exploring Norway like a true Norse(wo)man and reaping fitness benefits can be achieved through anything from the concept of ‘Friluftsliv’ (outdoors activities) to something as extreme as participating in ‘the Norseman’. This is considered the planet’s ultimate triathlon: a race that any hardcore triathlete should do at least once.
Some of the Up Norway team’s personal favourite athletic adventures include e-cycling day trips on Norway’s Scenic Route Geiranger–Trollstigen; skiing down the fjords of the Sunnmøre alps; kayaking around the archipelago of the Norwegian Maldives, Veiholmen; and playing golf in the light of the midnight sun.
Whatever your preferred athletic adventure might be, or wherever you are in the country, rest assured that there will always be an amazing sauna nearby to soothe those muscles when you’re done.
