What to Expect

This summer we are offering more fantastic opportunities to come to Norway. The weeks are run by the Navigators in association with and by invitation of “Elvheim” (River-Home). Elvheim is a non-profit making, privately run house (formerly a Hostel) which since 2001 has existed to provide opportunities for people to grow in whole of life discipleship. We are glad therefore to present these weeks…

Discipleship weeks will include a mixture of hiking in the beautiful Norwegian mountains, sports (e.g. volleyball, football & fjord jumping) and an opportunity to be involved in a discipleship teaching programme (programmes will follow). Come ready to share what it is like to be a disciple of Jesus in your country, on your campus, and in your setting. Come ready to interact with students from other cultures and to learn, listen, encourage, worship and spend time in the Word of God together. Come ready to work together, have fun and share your lives with one another.



Genuinely all are welcome but the Discipleship Weeks are primarily aimed at students and those in their 20s and 30s.


The Discipleship Weeks are 1600NOK (approx. €170 or £150). These prices are all inclusive of food, accommodation and excursions (travel to/from Skjolden not included).

Please note that additional days at Elvheim can also be booked (subject to availability) for 220NOK per night (inclusive of food and accommodation). In particular there is an opportunity to visit Elvheim in the week following Discipleship Week


THE SMALL PRINT:  Participants are required to organise their own travel to/from Norway and Payment for the week is ordinarily to be paid in Norwegian Kroner to the Elvheim Representative on arrival (please get in touch if this presents any problems). The Weeks are run by the Navigators (1st week USA Navigators & 2nd week UK Navigators) in association with Elvheim. Elvheim’s address is “Elvheim, 6876, Skjolden, Norway”. Participants are also responsible for ensuring they have a valid passport, suitable travel insurance and travel documents, including visas (if applicable).

Travel Insurance: All participants are required to have suitable travel and medical insurance to cover their participation in the programme. This must include provision for medical repatriation, trip cancellation and trip disruption (e.g. due to civil unrest or volcanic ash affecting air travel). You are responsible also for supplying accurate information as required by the insurer, and communicating details of your insurance arrangements to your team leader. In the UK insurers who offer suitable insurance include Bluefin, Salt Insurance and Banner Insurance. 

APPLICATION PROCESS: For non-UK based applicants please visit our Guestlist page (link below) and follow the instructions to book onto the programme. For all UK based applicants please be advised that as these weeks are International programmes run by the Navigators, we are required to have an application procedure and take references for all UK participants (n/a to NAV Reps).

“God enflamed my passion about Him again, now is the challenge to keep me going.”

“I learned that God’s goodness is really something to rely on.”

“God taught me what it means to invest in people and about my own calling and how I am experiencing God in that.” “I learned to really learn how to experience Him in ways I’d not really considered before.”

“I learned that God knows me inside out and all that is going on inside me and somehow loves me anyway.”
