NDG 2018 will take place in Vang municipality, Oppland, bordering to the beautiful mountain region Jotunheimen. The cabin is located in a rural area which offer many opportunites to hike in the immediate area around the cabin. This year's NDG will be held in a well-equipped high standard cabin, including an outdoor jaccuzzi and sauna, so remember bringing 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 Sogn og Fjordane

For our main excursion this year, we will once again be in the Aurland area. This time, we will be visiting the newly reconstructed Viking village of Njardarheimr, in Gudvangen. There, we will experience the life of a typical viking settlement, including a number of crafting activities. After spending a few hours there, we will take a ferry through Næroyfjorden: a spectacular fjord which is listed as a UNESCO world heritage site. It is also rated as the world's number one natural heritage by the National Geographic Society. After disembarking in Kaupanger, we will be following the fjord coastline, which presents many opportunities for stopping and enjoying the view. We will finish the day by stopping in Øvre Årdal for dinner.

Excursion to Jotunheimen

The second excursion this year is a hike through Jotunheimen with the option to choose between a challenging hike through the mountains, involving some climbing or a more relaxing stay at a scenic location offering easier walking paths. The participants choosing the actual hike should be physically fit, have good endurance and have good hiking shoes with support. Walking staves and thermos are also recommended. Previous hiking experience is also an advantage.

Registration

Over the years, we have come to realize that a large part of what makes NDG work well for everyone is having as part of the group many people who have been present in previous years and are familiar with the way we organize the event. As such, we have decided to split the 18 spaces we can offer for the event in three groups:

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 ndg@dragonkin.net with your e-mail service to make sure you get our e-mails.

It seems like NDG 2018 is full... Contact us at ndg at dragonkin.net, we may take on a few more participants in certain circumstances.
