Our Folkehøgskule is surrounded by magnificent nature that offers endless possibilities for outdoor enthusiasts, from hiking to skiing and fishing to kayaking.

At the school we have our own sports hall and there is a gym, spinning room, soccerfield, basketball/volleyball/badminton/floorball field, swimming hall with sauna as well as a track field and a tenniscourt in the vicinity.

Through a year at our climbing course you will be left with learning and experiences that you probably will remember for the rest of your life. The Norwegian nature will captivate you through its challenges and experiences.

NLCN will let you meet some of the special local culture of Setesdal, and you will meet different cultures and ways of living in more areas. We also plan for a trip to the exotic Svalbard/Spitsbergen and Lofoten, and probably a trip with Hurtigruten.
