At Setesdal Folkehøgskule you will experience a lot of famous destinations in Norway.

Some of these are a relatively short drive from the school, but others are some distance away.

Just a few kilometers up the mountain from the school is Brokke, with alpine center, cross-country trails, and opportunities for hiking in the mountains.

We are planning for these trips and excursions:

There is room for a maximum of 16 students in this class.


Mandatory: Yes

Price: Included in course price

NLCN is planning for more trips in mainland Norway, like Lofoten, with Hurtigruten, to Preikestolen, etc, but will also go half  the way to the North Pole, to Svalbard. This is a very exotic place, whit more polar bears than people, with midnight sun in summer, northern light in winter time, and often with opportunities for trips by boat or snowmobile to Russian communities. 

Who we are

We develop independent people through their passion for subjects and classes that we offer.

All classes will offer you experience and adventure.

We are offering the following courses: Paragliding and outdoor life, Climbing and steep outdoor activities, Tourism, Anno Setesdal, and Norwegian language, culture and nature.

These are the facilities around the school: Gym, spinning room, soccerfield, basketball/volleyball/badminton/floorball field, swimming hall and a sauna.

We also have a track field and a tenniscourt in the vicinity. We have big alpine skiing areas not too far away from the school plus a scenic nature surrounding us.

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.

Tourism plans to go to Asia and Iceland, but also to develope local tourism and destinations, festivals, etc.
