Almost nothing, we got most of it covered. But you do need private clothing! Each trip has its own equipment list. You will receive the list when you sign up for the trip. All the details are well explained there. If you are missing anything, and you feel it’s too expensive to buy a piece of gear just for one trip, we are sure we can work something out for you! Beyond Limits has a big storage. We can also answer any equipment-related question you might have.
If you are in general good shape, you can join most of our trips. Based on our experience, we prefer to walk at a slower pace to avoid injuries, and organize the breaks in the most efficient manner. Our trips are well planned and we try each of them before we offer them to the public. If you plan to cross Norway in winter with us, we recommend you join our Sundsfjord-Glomfjord trip first for training.
We always plan our trips and make sure that everything is as safe as possible. However, you have to remember that nature can be unpredictable. We’ve got security tracker beacon on each trip, GPS and satellite phones. Our headquarters follow every step we take and provide us with weather updates every day. Our guides are trained in the roughest environment on Earth, and we follow tight safety procedures.
For longer, more demanding treks, we expect you to be able to carry a backpack for several days in a row. For ski expeditions, try pulling tires to get your back used to the effort. Start training as soon as possible.
