FriHAVsliv is a programme for those who long for nature and sea. The school year at Øyrekka folkehøgskole will be active and engaging, you will really get to know yourself and the forces of nature.
Do you want to spend a major part of the year outdoors? Are you dreaming of freediving for scallops? Or maybe catch the biggest fish in the Norwegian sea? Then you have come to the right place!
Friluftsliv Hav offer some of the best options for maritime and coastal activities and outdoor life. You will have a year full of amazing and challenging activities and exiting nature experiences. There are many and varied options and opportunities, and the final programme will be agreed upon in collaboration between teacher and students. FriHAVsliv is guaranteed to give you a unique and unforgettable year!
Large portions of the year will take place at sea in the fresh air, often in a wetsuit. Its’ therefore important that you enjoy being active. Throughout the schoolyear we will engage in many activities, amongst others:
- Freediving and spearfishing
- Sea kayaking
- SUP (stand up paddling)
- Fishing both from land and boat
- Sleeping outdoors
- Underwater photography
- Local island hopping
During the school year sea eagles will become a part of your everyday life, and when we are out on trips otters, seals and orcas can all become regular sights. We are planning to have frequent multiday trips, sleeping in everything from hammocks to glamping.
In addition to all this you will also have the option of acquiring different certificates, for example Boating licence, våttkort (Norwegian sea kayaking licence) and potentially a PADI scuba diving licence. This is optional courses and may cost a bit extra.
