1. The Fjord Cleanup
The Fjord Cleanup project lets your team bond while doing something great for the planet. The group is a non-profit environmental organisation whose goal is to support the restoration and protection of the Inner Oslo Fjord. The group organises weekly, voluntary cleanup events. Volunteers can choose from using a stand-up paddleboard, kayak or diving equipment to help in the cleanup effort. The Fjord CleanUp removed five tonnes of plastic from the Oslo Fjord in 2020.Fjord CleanUP .

8. Cozy Campfire
Enjoy nature and simply head outside and light a campfire. Thanks to Norway’s ‘Right to Roam’, people are allowed to hike and camp pretty much anywhere, so long as they follow a few basic rules. For example, clean up after yourself and make sure you put your campfire out when you are finished. Many Norwegians say there is nothing better than taking in the cool night air while being warmed by a campfire.Making pinnebrød on the campfire .
