CAMPS & ONLINE COURSES
NØRSKK courses are designed to improve your knowledge, skills, and wisdom, so you can be a man and a badass Víkingar living by ancestral pre-christianization Norse traditions, including the Víkinga Code: Courage, Honor, Strength, Brotherhood, Loyalty, Integrity, Discipline, Determination, Simplicity.
NØRSKK courses are taught by Úlfhéðnar... As in absolutely Crazy Norsemen who are masters of all things Víkingr, from culture and traditions, to combat. This should tell you something. If it doesn't, you should definitely find out more about Úlfhéðnar before you go any further!
Some courses are only offered online, while others are only field courses. It all depends on whether we think it's just a matter of getting some concepts into your head, or a matter of having to physically and mentally train you.
Participation in some NØRSKK courses is very selective, and any NØRSKK course is subject to our RULES.
AVAILABLE TRAINING OPTIONS:
Badass level reached upon completion of each course will vary. Click here for details.
VÍKINGR TRAINEE (LEVEL 1) - ONLINE
Training freemen like you so they can eventually become Víkingar and real men (because a man should be able to survive outside of his basement, and not rely on Hagkaup for his food) is what we do (among a couple other things).
As a Hirðmaðr (Old Norse for Hirdman), aka Víkingr Trainee, you'll learn the basics about Norse stuff, tools, weapons and archery, and essentially what it takes to survive, and even live, in the bush. You'll also get a feel of what being a warrior is all about. All done online before you get to the really serious stuff in the bush... If you're fit, motivated, and good enough that is.
WILD VÍKINGR (LEVEL 2) - CAMP
We're talking real, hardcore, primitive survival here...
Now that you've become a Hirðmaðr (aka Víkingr), you can look forwards to the blissfull misery of actually surviving in a harsh wilderness environment, with next to nothing, by building on everything your learned so far. The goal here is to finally become a Hersir (aka Wild Víkingr), and of course a real man, and a NØRSKK Víkingr.
This ain't easy training... It's gonna require a lot of motivation and tolerance to pain, suffering, and misery, but it won't cost you a bit of silver. That's right. Want a kick in the nuts to confirm you aren't dreaming?
CRAZY VÍKINGR (LEVEL 3) - CAMP
This should be your goal in life. Only the cream of the crop become berserkir, masters of all things Víkingr, from archery, to survival, to the art of going berserk productively (unlike Björk). Not to mention the ability to drink mead like common freemen drink Evian, to chew on wood (shield, axe handle, whatever) like it is hog jerky, or to wear an Icelandic bathing suit like a hipster wears speedos.
Becoming a Berserkr ain't gonna be easy though. It will require good genes, time, motivation, and efforts... But no silver! (That's right. Want another kick in the nuts to confirm you aren't dreaming?)
SOF UPGRADE - FAST TRACK
SURVIVAL BASICS - CAMP
Would be nice to be able to survive in the wilderness, wouldn't it? The Lífa camp can help you with that by introducing you to the basics of wilderness survival with minimal equipment, and just for two days so it isn't too miserable.
VIKING FITNESS - ONLINE & CAMP
This course is about getting fit like a Víkingr, by developing functional muscles and body strength, completely naturally, with no gym, no steroids, and no supplements. Just your genes and your sweat.
Traditional Viking Fighting - Camp
Wanna be a fighter and learn the fundamentals of traditional viking fighting? Interested in knowing the difference between hráspenna, lagarspenna, hryggspenna, and the much more aggressive lausatök? This week end field camp will teach you the basics of this Norse martial art.
TRADITIONAL NORSE ARCHERY - CAMP
Wanna learn the fundamentals of traditional Norse archery, without the typical bullshit associated with modern archery (essentially for show)? Wanna learn to actually use a traditional long bow for hunting and stuff? This field course will put you on the path to become a good archer.
SCUBA DIVER/PADI CERTIFIED OPEN WATER DIVER - ONLINE & CAMP
Yeah, we know. Exploring new and exciting places like Thor Heyerdahl is part of a Víkingr DNA. And if there's something left on earth that truly requires exploration by Víkingar, it is indeed our oceans.
VIKING FIRST AID - ONLINE
This course teaches you how to deal with injuries and other problems in the middle of nowhere, from primarily a military perspective and a traditional viking approach.
WILDERNESS FIRST AID - CAMP
This camp is the practical version of the Lækning (Viking First Aid) course. It's like an advanced wilderness first aid course, but without the civilian bullshit, emphasizing instead on a military, and you guessed it, traditional viking approach.
The Basics of OLD Norse TRADITIONS - online
Wanna be a Víkingar but know nothing about Norse stuff? This course is for you. It covers the fundamentals of Norse mythology and ancestral Norse traditions. We could also call it Norse Stuff for Dummies.
NORTHWOMAN TRAINEE - ONLINE
Norðkona training is for women who who want to gain traditional Norse knowledge similar to that offered in the Hirðmaðr training.
Upon completion of this course, you will have a basic understanding of Norse culture, survival concepts, and reindeer (yes, reindeer... An essential part of Scandinavian culture). So, if you don’t know about Norse stuff, wilderness survival, or reindeer - or the basis of what a Norðkona should know - this training program is for you.
EVERYTHING ABOUT WOLVES - ONLINE
We Úlfhéðnar have a very special relationship with wolves... So, when it comes to learning everything about wolves, you came to the right bros!
EVERYTHING ABOUT BEARS - ONLINE
Bears are very significant in Norse culture, and learning about the animal is essential as part of one's path to becoming a Berserkr, or simply for those guys who feel a natural connection with the animal.
EVERYTHING ABOUT REINDEER - ONLINE
The course covers everything you should know about reindeer/caribou, from a scientific perspective (undergraduate/graduate/doctoral level). So yeah, it is dry, but thorough, factual, and objective.
EXPLORER/PAWGI CERTIFIED ASSISTANT GUIDE - ONLINE
So, the blissful misery of bush survival ain't your thing. We get it. Sure. You're the Eiríkr Þorvaldsson type (Eric the Red), and you just want to go places and explore.
Well, this international course will teach you what you need to know about the wilderness, so your chances of dying in the bush are somewhat lower. Amazing, huh? And you know what's even more amazing, you'll get an actual certification once you're done! It's like Jól!!! Oh... You haven't taken a Norse mythology course, have you. Jól is like our Christmas...
Expedition Leader/PAWGI Certified Wilderness Guide - Expedition
Follow the steps of Eiríkr hinn rauði (Eric the Red). Be an integral part of an expedition to rediscover Grænland (Greenland), while being trained and certified as an Expedition Leader (aka PAWGI Certified Wilderness Guide or CWG) by a PAWGI-certified Wilderness Instructor, together with an IFMGA-certified Mountain Guide and Wildlife Biologist (and yeah, they are, of course, Úlfhéðnar)
The combined expedition and course is endorsed by the Professional Association of Wilderness Guides and Instructors (PAWGI). It is designed for exceptionally fit and resilient bros who want to become Expedition Leaders, and therefore need to gain advanced wilderness knowledge so they can pursue a career as expedition leaders and guides.
FLIGHT TRAINING - CAMP
So, you want to fly like an eagle. Over the northern wilderness... Endless lakes... Raging rivers... Towering peaks and never ending ice fields...
