Every semester we release a new tour program which are all run by volunteers in BSI Friluft. One has to be a member to join these weekend trips. We do all we can to put together a program that has something for everyone.
Sign-up will be possible the weekend ahead of departure, and link to sign-up form will be published through our mailingliste. It's essential to enlist to our mailinglist if you want to join our hikes.
We have to make clear that BSI Friluft is NOT a guiding company, but an organization run by volunteers who like to spend time outdoors. Hence our tour leaders are more or less people who want to coordinate trips with people who share the same passion for the nature. It's therefore extremely important that you make a self-assessment of your own skills, and how they meet the tour description of the trip you want to join. If you feel uncertain about the trip, please contact the tour leader for some sound advice.
All our trips is based on a "first come, first served"-principle. But the more demanding the trip is, the more the tour leaders will have to also weight in the previous experience of the signees (This matters especially tours grader 3 or 4). They will try to make a group they feel confident with bringing out, as safety always must be our number one priority.
BSI Friluft is a voluntary association
where neither the board nor leaders of a trip get any economic benefits
from this work. As such the board and leaders of a trip do not necessarily
possess qualifications as mountain guides and do not have any financial or
judicial liability of any kind. Trip leaders are merely coordinatorers of
the activities undertaken. By Norwegian law, in a case of emergency all are
required to aid the person in need according to their own qualifications,
physical abilities, and evaluation of the risk involved. Participators are
strongly advised to assess their own qualifications before enlisting to a
trip, the trip leaders do have the right to refuse participants who do not
possess the technical or physical skills necessary to participate in a
trip, All activities are undertaken at the participator`s own risk and
responsibility, and by enlisting to a trip the participator confirms
this. A travel insurance is recomended *
