Description. Exercise Troll Challenger is an expedition/journeying exercise conducted either on foot, by canoe or mountain bike. Participants will form up at CCAT Halton, Lancaster where they will undertake pre-expedition administration before transferring to Evje, Norway by road and air. Participants will undertake a further day of planning and acclimatisation training before embarking on a challenging remote self-supported 4 day wilderness expedition. The mountains above the Setesdal valley provide a challenging environment for either foot or mountain bike journeys or by canoe through the interconnecting system of lakes and rivers which run through its base. Each expedition group will consist of 8 Cadets and 2 qualified CFAV leaders. The expedition will conclude with all the participants coming together to complete a White-Water rafting journey. The expedition will transfer back to the UK by road and air, conduct post exercise administration at Halton, Lancaster before dispersal to home locations.
