NDG 2020 will take place in Flesberg municipality, not far from where NDG started back in 2010, deep in the beautiful Buskerud at the heart of Norway. The cabin is located on Blestølen surrounded by beautiful high-land nature and offers many nice trails in the area. If you walk a bit further up on the mountain there are a multitude of lakes to bath in. The cabin is equipped with a jacuzzi and sauna, so remember to bring with your bath gear.
Below, you will find a preliminary excursion plans. Note that we reserve the right to change some details of those plans if needed.
Excursion to Langedrag
We will return to the wildlife park of Langedrag where we will get intimate with the Norwegian nature and wildlife. The park's mission is to teach humans to understand the nature and live in harmony with it, and through a day you get a crash course in the Norwegian wild life. You will be able to participate to feed the moose, raindeer, and polar foxes, and you can witness the feeding of wolves and lynxes. For an additional charge, you may even be able to meet the wolves and lynxes within their closure on the nature's premises.
Excursion to Gaustatoppen
The second excursion will go to Gaustatoppen in Telemark. It's peak is 1800 meters above sealevel and it has a cable-car built into the mountain, making the view from the peak accessible to everyone. If weather permits, we will eat lunch on the peak, then we will go to Rjukan, which is famous for it's sun mirrors installed on the mountain to let down sunlight in the town square during winter time.
Unfortunately it is not possible to hike to Gaustatoppen in November. Updated plans will be communicated as soon as they are available.
The registration will open 6th january 2020 and close 12th january if it is full. If more participants has registered than we have space for, a lottery will commence to draw the participants that can attend NDG 2019. If all spaces has not been filled, the registration will be open until all slots has been taken and then close immediately when filled. If any participant later on decide to vacant their reserved space at NDG, the vacant space will be passed on to next participant in queue.
Please try to sort out your vacation plans ahead of registering so you do not register without having at least some level of confidence that you will be able to attend to NDG. Also note that Gmail have a tendency to sort all NDG e-mails as spam, and several report they do not see our e-mails at all, so you have to whitelist firstname.lastname@example.org with your e-mail service to make sure you get our e-mails.
