The longest trip will give you travel memories and experiences you won't soon forget.

South-East Asia entices with nature, people, culture quite different from what we are used to. In advance of the trip, we will prepare enough so that we are familiar with the cultures and geography we will encounter. On this trip, we will focus on aid. We visit a small poor village in Laos, where we help build a school, live and eat with the locals and, not least, play with the local children.

One of our goals with the trip is to visit places where we come into close contact with the culture and the people. We visit well-known places in both Thailand and Laos, but we seek even more to reach out to areas that are lesser known, and which will give us experiences that we would not otherwise have the opportunity to have. Laos is a country that, until very recently, has been very closed and unknown to the Western world. This will be one of the major highlights of the Ticket to Ride course.

During and after the trip, we work with film and photography to document the experiences we have had and experiences made.

At Hurdal Verk Folk High School you will be close to the amazing nature and find Norwegian friends of your own age. Are you thinking about studying in Norway? A year at folk high school is a good prerequisite for success as a student.

We offer courses in Norwegian language, and foreign students will be integrated into classes with students who speak Norwegian and English. All teaching is in Norwegian, and fellow students will help with translation.
