Social Program

Informal Mingling in the Forest

When: Saturday 16 September, 14:00 – 17:00

Location: “Røroshytta”, Rørosstien 1, Trondheim


Welcoming people to Norway and Trondheim gives us an opportunity to introduce our Norwegian traditions and habits. One such tradition is “gå på tur” (going on a hike) where we pack some good snacks, put on outdoor clothing, and head off to the forest or mountains – all year around. We invite you to sample this tradition by joining us at the “Røroshytta”, a wooden cabin in the nearby forest of “Bymarka” above Trondheim city center. Here, you can explore the surrounding area and enjoy beautiful views of Trondheim – and then find shelter and some APMS friends around the “hytte”.


We will be there from 14:00 and at 17:00 we will start shuffling those who are still left back to town. If the weather allows some equipment for outdoor games and activities will be available. Simple refreshments are provided, including the traditional “grilla pølse med lompe” (grilled hotdog in a potato cake), soft drinks and snacks, with alternatives for those with dietary requirements.


The event takes place outdoors so casual and weather-appropriate clothing and shoes are recommended.
