In April, 16 Army Cadets from across the UK took on an immense challenge to retrace the route taken by the saboteurs across Norway in World War II. The team utilised pulks and dog sleigh teams to move the personal and group expedition equipment.
To prepare for an unsupported crossing of the Hardangervida trail in the tradition of the Heroes of Telemark Saboteurs in World War II, the first phase involved a six-day Nordic ski touring training package.
During phase two, they embarked on a five-day self-sufficient Nordic ski touring expedition across Hardangervida in Norway, which is the highest mountain plateau in Northern Europe. They followed the exact route taken by the saboteurs, utilising pulks and dog sleigh teams.
