Wednesday - walking group

A little movement and activity can be highly beneficial for you as a student during the dark season we're entering, especially as we approach the exam period.

Engaging in physical activity contributes to better sleep, improved memory and increased mood. It reduces stress hormones and increase energy in everyday life. That's why we would like to invite you to join for a simple evening stroll with the purpose of getting some fresh air, moving the body, and sharing smiles with other friendly faces. We will have a trip each Wednesday.     

We have registration for the trips so that we have your contact information in case we need to communicate changes along the way. You only sign up once. We fully understand that the exam period is busy and the dark season can be challenging, and we won't take it (too) hard if your lovely face doesn't show up every time. Of course, we hope to see you on all the trips!

These are the trips we will walk: 


We will check how many swans and ducks we can count on the walk around Tveitevannet. The lake is located near Sletten center, and the route is approximately 2 km on flat terrain. Many people run, take a walk with their dogs, or stop by the exercise equipment that we will pass on this route. The trail is well-lit the entire way, making it a perfect round for a late autumn evening.

⏱️ Duration: 30 minutes 


Store Lungegårdsvann 

The loop around Store Lungegårdsvann is slightly less than 3 km, on completely flat terrain, and mostly on asphalt or gravel paths. It's a nice and popular round for an evening walk!
