ABOUT THE LECTURE
“In January 2018 Tania embarked on what she calls “the most beautiful and memorable journey” of her life. In 82 days from January to April she skied 2,533km to complete a solo winter journey called, in Norwegian, “Norge på langs”. The lengthwise traverse of Norway from Lindesnes lighthouse in the south to Nordkapp on the arctic coast has long been established as one of Europe’s best long distance summer treks. It is far less frequently completed in winter, and rarely completed solo. Tania will talk about her unforgettable journey, highlighting some of the most rewarding aspects but also discussing some moments which tested all of her mountaineering and skiing skills.”
