THE EXTREME ACTIVITIES - NETWORKING THE NORWEGIAN WAY

Startup Extreme was founded to create international attention towards the Norwegian startup scene. The team at Startup Extreme truly believes that solid relations are key to getting business done. We know that many business relations are created at the afterparty of a conference. As a good alternative to that we came up with the idea to get his done in a different way - being out in the nature together facing extreme outdoor challenges together.

The Park consists of Main and Micro high rope courses and a Zip-line course, with 60 elements in total. High Rope Courses are all about personal challenge and discovery as you make your way through the climbing and balancing elements hanging between the trees. You will overcome your fears and help others with theirs whilst having fun!
