Are you tough enough to follow in the footsteps of the real Heroes of Telemark?
The first in our series and the hardest Battlefield tour in the world. The Heroes of Telemark took part in Operation Gunnerside, a world famous sabotage operation during WW2. Gunnerside was successful in blowing up the heavy water factory at Vemork in Nazi occupied Norway, thus halting the German race to build the atomic bomb. Covering great distances over the Hardangervidda plateau, our 10 day expedition will test you both physically and mentally. Are you tough enough to follow in their footsteps?
