GREETINGS!

In 2019 Crossing Latitudes sponsored / hosted 32 NOLS Wilderness Medicine courses in Europe and Nepal (compared to 22 courses in 2018). We had over 500 participants and of those about 325 folks were taught in Swedish, 185 in English and 10 folks were taught in Finnish. We also hosted 3 courses in Montana, USA. I have a feeling we will have even more courses in 2020!

To teach wilderness medicine continues to be our main mission and we are having lots of fun with it. We are adding courses is new locations. Both Hungary and Slovenia were hits in 2019.

With this increase of participants and course locations we are glad to welcome Malin Thomasson back to teach with us again. We also welcoming new staff – Fred Södergran and Xuan Ming, Ng – to our team of NOLS Wilderness Medicine staff in Scandinavia.

In 2020 our team will be: Lena Conlan, Elias Sjöberg, Roope Roine, Malin Thomasson, Fred Södergran, Xuan Ming, Ng and hopefully Eva Söderström who will take the Instructor Training Course in February 2020.

Crossing Latitudes does not offer scheduled Trips and Expeditions in Sweden any more but please contact us and we will be glad to help you connect with other Outdoor companies we trust in Scandinavia.

The Royal Kingdom of Sweden
Sweden is known for Volvo, Saab, Absolute Vodka, Ingmar Bergman and the Ice Hotel in Jukkasjärvi. We are proud of all this, but more so we treasure our incredible forests, our vast archipelagos and our pristine glaciated mountains. Clean air, beautiful historic cities, friendly people and strong traditions are a few things people link with Sweden.

Crossing Latitudes used to offer sea kayaking Inn Trips along the west coast of Sweden in the Bohuslän (Bo-hoos-lan) Archipelago. This coastline contains thousands of islands and skerries with a myriad of pelagic birds, seals and picturesque fishing villages – making it a sea kayaking paradise! Let us help you connect with friends who can take you on a camping expedition where a new island becomes your home each night or an Inn Trip where you stay at a Guesthouse and just do day trips.

In the far north, above the Arctic Circle you can enjoy Mountain Treks with reindeer. In the region known as Lappland, live the traditional reindeer herding people known as the Saami. Together with the Saami and their reindeer (used as pack animals) you can hike and experience the Saami lifestyle in this unspoiled wilderness.

In the winter you can join the Saami during the Reindeer migration. If reindeer isn’t your thing … but you are a skier then join a hut-to-hut trip in the High Country of Sweden. We have lots of friends offering Reindeer treks, Dog sledding adventures or winter Ski expeditions. Please contact us for more information at info@crossinglatitudes.com

Crossing Latitudes does not offer any trips and expeditions in Norway any more  but … 

If you are interested in a trip in Norway please contact MOLN in Finland. Moln is owned and operated by Roope Roine – our NOLS Wilderness Medicine staff member. Great trips all over the world!

Norway – Land of Vikings and Trolls
Norway is home to Trolls and Vikings, cross country skiers, great composers and artists. Norway is also the home of such successful explorers as Nansen, Amundsen and Heyerdahl. Their exploratory feats offer inspiration as we paddle the fjords and coastal islands of the Norwegian Sea.

Most of the Camping Expeditions and Inn Trips Crossing Latitudes have offered in the past take place more than a hundred miles north of the Arctic Circle. The Lofoten Islands, the Salten Coast and the Vesterålen Islands are all characterized by steep and rugged mountains, deep fjords, great fishing and white sandy beaches. These sparsely populated areas are also home to some of Norway’s largest pelagic bird colonies.

Our Lofoten Multi Adventure Trip has always been a favorite. This area is for people of all ages who want to enjoy a variety of cultural and outdoor activities such as bird watching, day hiking, sea kayaking day trips, fishing and visiting local museums and historic sites. June 22-29 we will travel by kayak, by foot or by boat. We will stay in comfortable guesthouses or rorbus (traditional fishermen cabins) and enjoy the cuisine at local restaurants. If you can not join our trip then please email us and we will be glad to recommend other friends in the outdoor industry.

In central Norway lies the Jotunheimen National Park. Jotunheimen, which means the “Home of the Giants”, contains some of the highest peaks in Europe north of the Alps. Hoist your day pack and join us day trekking through the most spectacular mountain range in Scandinavia!

A popular Multi-Adventure Trip is the “Norway in a Nutshell” Trip where one might start and end in Oslo. In between you get to hike in the Jotunheimen National Park and Sea Kayak on the Sognefjord – the longest and deepest fjord in Europe!

Crossing Latitudes doesn’t offer scheduled Trips and Expeditions any more but please contact us and we will be glad to help you connect with other Outdoor companies we trust.
