Telemark Norway

"The companionship certainly made the trip what it was. While we were a small group, the size underlined our respect of and relationship to each other. Everyone had something to bring to the trip. Everyone will have gained something from the trip. I have made more friends, and my regard for both of you is still of the highest order" (Thai Burma Railway Trek Mar 2008) - I can do no more than repeat those words about this trip. It was hard but it was fun. I learnt a lot about a famous event. I learnt a lot about the resolve of the Norwegian resistance, I learnt a lot about snow survival, I even learnt how to ski cross country, and walk with snow shoes. As you know I keep coming back to the EE treks because of the people, the training, and the safety. Once again you met my high standards (as I would have expected from you). I am proud to say that I was part of your inaugural Heroes of Telemark trek and for that I thank you both"
Mike Cunningham, Telemark Norway February 2011

"I’ve safely returned from the summit of Mt Kilimanjaro and Mt Meru. I didn’t use any Diamox or get a headache at all. So clearly the altitude training paid dividends"
