Three geology students from NTNU have completed the distance from Lindesnes to the North Cape and Thursday 21 April two of them reached the target.
Det norske has been a proud sponsor of the sporty boys on the road north and congratulates on well-conducted tour!
The trip was intended to last for 100 days for the 3 students and the start went 10.januar 2011 from Lindesnes. Unfortunately, a knee injury put a stop for Lars who had to break 23 January, but Andreas and Torstein went on the trip north with enthusiasm and joy.
“We have met many friendly people, experiencing a lot of great mountain areas and generally had a fantastic trip! There have been many ups and downs along the way but in retrospect, both the positive and the negative will become good memories and valuable experiences! “
