Some main courses have their own trips with the class in addition to this. (Horse, Powder, Bootcamp, Creative and Fotball).
These trips are mandatory (and included in the price given for that course).
Other classes have one of the 6 November trips as a part of class. (e.g Alpine adventure – Spain have the climping in Spain trip as a part of the main course.) This means that the Climbing Spain trip is recommended as a November choice for this class. But it is not mandatory. Students in this class could select one of the other November trips if they want to. The price for the November trips is given on the presentation page for that trip, and is not included in any main course price.
The learning Norwegian plus course have Norway as recommended trip, but you select whatever you want.
Creative has their own trip to Iceland in April/May in addition to the November trips
