In 2005, Lars Verket “jumped off the career carousel,” as he puts it, to begin a new life as an adventurer, writer and ocean paddler. Over the last few years, Lars has paddled 2500 miles along the southern Norwegian coastline, published three different paddling guides, and has two new ones in the making.

“Southern Norway has a fantastic coast line,” says Lars. “You can find every kind of paddling, from protected and idyllic to very exposed and very wild – and all of it very beautiful. There are thousands of islands, picturesque lighthouses, and spectacular fjords, as well.”

Lars is a firm believer that people can enjoy the outdoors close to home and have truly amazing outdoor experiences, something that makes it possible to be more active in the outdoors while making a smaller impact on the environment. Lars has been using Hilleberg tents for many years.

“With a Hilleberg tent in my kayak, I never have to worry about bad weather. They have handled every weather condition that I have encountered so far, from sun to snow, rain and wind. This year I am using the Allak as my home away from home.”
