GOOD TIMES WITH GREAT PEOPLE

One reason many decide to come back to FriluftsByn and this adventure is the amazing community feeling. To get to know new friends by the campfires and hang with your friends or family as you cheer on more hikers who cross the finish line on top of Skuleberget. These are memories that will last a long time. Not to mention the fun we have and the excitement we feel on the pre-evening in FriluftsByn or how satisfyingly awesome it is to chill at the Top Cabin after crossing that finish line, and of course – the After Hike. Good times with great people sums it up well.
