The subject starts in the discipline Adventure racing – where we combine the following outdoor disciplines: 


  • Mountain bike

  • Ocean kayaking

  • Orienteering run

  • Bike and Run

  • Trail running

  • Canoeing

  • In-liners

  • Climbing


In Adventure racing, you operate in teams and during the race you meat challenges in the described disciplines. Navigation by maps or compass leads you from checkpoint to checkpoint – often through many hours and through landscapes you wouldn’t have imagined. 

Adventure racing is all about teamwork, optimizing the team’s all-over performance, versatility and experiences in our unique nature. During your stay, you will participate in a row of adventure races, often arranged by IHS. 


This subject, does not take any special skills, everybody can participate.


The school provides all the necessary equipment, but we have a true expectation that you will bring clothing that is durable to water and dirt.


You can choose adventure racing in the spring term 2 & 3 and fall term 1 & 2.
