‘Norge på langs’ directly translates to ‘Norway Lengthwise’. This was first attempted in 1951, as a relay by the Norwegian Boy Scouts on its 40th Anniversary. It has since become one of the world’s great challenges and can be completed in winter or summer.
It is a vertical route starting from either Lindesnes in the South or Nordkapp in the North.
The route is approximately 2700kms and they aim to finish in 120 days. They will start on 5 Jan 2016.
You can follow their progress via their SPOT Tracker or read their blog which will be updated daily or weekly (dependent on their cellular coverage).
