Do you hear the Northlands calling you?

Imagine your feet pulsing on the earth, feeling the direct current of the Arctic wilds of Norway. Norway host the harbors of Northmen and the heartland of Nordic traditions and seers. This journey takes us into the heart of Lapland and the Arctic circle. Lapland: the epicenter of the indigenous Sami and refuge for a vast expanse of the wilderness of fells, mountains, boreal forest, tundra, and fjords sculpted by glaciers. Pure waters abound and beckon to the traveler. Sink into icy rivers, lakes, and the Arctic Sea while being refreshed by traditional and contemporary saunas. In the world between time, ice giants, dwarves, and dragons lurk at the edge of our imagination. Listen closely, and we can still hear their voices on the four winds.

Some of the quietest places in the world are found in Northern Scandinavia during the winter. Imagine 50 shades of crystalline snow casting rainbows in all directions, trees hanging so heavy with snow that their silhouettes look like a crowd of people quietly observing the tundra. It is the all-pervading silence that wraps it all together creating a space for deep internal reflections. 

Aurora Borealis, the Northern Lights, is the mysterious beauty of the Nordic night sky. They frequently show themselves to those that are willing to walk into the darkness and open up to receive the lights beyond the veil. They carry many stories with them: the tail of the Fire Fox, Thor's Chariot, and bridge in between the worlds. They both dance and sing yet few are the ones that have heard the subtle sound of these moving lights in the sky. What will they whisper to you?

For hundreds of years, Norwegian seers and wind magicians were coveted for their skills in the art of sea navigation and controlling the winds. Not only could they read the stars to navigate, but they could also read the invisible forces in the space between the stars. As you move through the Norwegian landscape, whether these seers run through your DNA or you have begun to awaken your northern soul, you can feel as if you were walking through a waking dream. The Telluric currents, boreal forest, lakes, fens, all speak in the voice of the Four Winds. 

Come journey in the Norse Arctic with guardians of the northlands in the heart of winter.
