Choosing the right equipment for a long journey is critical to success. Many expeditions have failed by simply choosing the wrong equipment.

Using our years of expedition experience and knowing what works, we have fine tuned our equipment specifically for the Norge På Langs. The gear we have chosen is high quality, low weight and is tried and tested.

We spent countless hours honing our “kit list ” down to the best products at minimal weight. A special thanks to Christine our local seamstress who adapted our expedition clothing to our needs. She is an understated gem!

The primary item is the tent, and we have used Hilleberg tents for over 30 years. They are tried and tested and the best available.


In temperatures down to -30C we need something to keep us warm in terms of a duvet and sleeping bag. PHD Designs are at the cutting edge of quality down products at mega light weight.


Åsnes skies, skins and poles have been our favourite for over 20 years and are used by most hard core expeditions. They were the first to introduce half integral skins.


Again Alfa boots have been to both Poles, hence our desire to use them.


MSR stoves consistently lead the field in reliable performance


The good guys at Multimat consistently produce warm,innovate lightweight sleeping mats.


Snowsled keeps on innovating and their ” blue sleds” are a fantastic lightweight and reliable Pulk.


In Britain Braemar Mountain Sports lead the field in cross- country skiing expertise.


Technology has advanced so quickly in lightweight clothing and equipment. Ultra Light Outdoor Gear are at the forefront of how to save those extra grams. Their website starts with the lightest kit first.
