We are back !!

This week in Hardangervidda has been intense. A journey on skis and pulka in which we have conducted workshops of all kinds, within the course of Cold Environtments (Wilderness Guides) of W.G.A. Led by X-Plore, we have handled nivology workshops and navigation compass.

There have been eight days in total, from 1st to March 8th, in which students, all mountain leaders (UIMLA) and ourselves, have expanded and strengthened our expertise in leadership, group management, conflict resolution, winter camping , survival in cold environments, tracking, repairing stoves, pulkas driving techniques, telecommunications, terrain safety circulation, moisture management and much more.

We have shared some fantastic days with a spectacular people. New friends already.

We found everyone very soon the day 1, Prat Airport (Barcelona), to catch our flight to Bergen with Norwegian with more packages which carries Santa Claus on his sleigh.



Once in Bergen, we spent the night in a highly recommended Hotel, Marken Gjesthus, which is very close to the Bus Station, and still closer to the Central Train Station, we took shortly before 8:00 am on next, heading towards Finse. This route is recognized as one of the most beautiful travel by train in the world. I agree.

Once in Finse, we prepared all the equipment together with pulkas, who previously rode the train and, ready to go !!


We enjoyed, learned and shared everything and everyone, surrounded by spectacular scenery. An environment that can be overwhelming, despite staying relatively close to civilization. In which we could  feel inside our bones how cold is able to bite. We arrived at temperatures of  – 25.4 ° C. And we slept one night in a makeshift shelter, no tents, no stoves, and someone even without sleeping bag. Alone and distanced from each other. A long night, indeed.


We have returned with everything we need to organize more than one activity in this area. Soon, we will prepare and be all set to share with you all that we have lived.

We hope to see you here at Hardangervidda !!

See you soon!!

On Sunday February 21st, we drove to Porté-Puymorens for nivology and avalanches practices with students from TD2 (Mountain Leaders candidates, UIMLA) from CAR de Sant Cugat (High Performance Center). It was a fantastic day. Interesting, entertaining and soooo sunny with springtime temperatures. We did circulation practices in avalanche terrain, quick tests for studying the stability of snow’s mantle, column test, extended column test, clarify doubts and end up with an experiment to detect and display, in a somewhat “spectacular” weak layers of the mantle, with a nice laaarge cup of coffee !!!
It was the first time we did something like that and the result, more than satisfactory.
