Training camps

We are currently working on developing a concept for training camps for running and triathlon. The camps will be a combination of training and diet education, both theory and training sessions.

For groups we can tailor make camps for your needs.

The base for the camps will be at Arctic Nature Resort, located close to the beautiful fishing village Henningsvær.

Event management services

Two years in a row we have cooperated with artist Sondre Justad in arranging amazing concerts at Festvågtind mountain. Festvågtind is a fantastic peak (541 m.a.s.) which gives 360-degrees panoramic view of the Lofoten islands and Vestfjorden.

In 2017 the concert turned out to be a mini Festival with several other norwegian artists: Sondre Lerche, Marit Larsen, Fay Wildhagen and Darling West.

Stay tuned for dates for the next magic concert at Festvågtind…
