TSI has got a new home page, then us in Fjellgruppa got a new page too!
We will try to keep it updated with information about what is happening in Fjellgruppa etc. At the moment follow us on facebook for up to date information.
What is Fjellgruppa
We are a sub group of Tromsø Students’ Sports Team. Fjellgruppa translated it means the mountain group. As a member you have the possibility to take part in trips, courses and various social events.
Fjellgruppa is mainly involved in simple and traditional outdoor activities, but we also arrange mountaineering trips, ski trips etc., according to guiding competence within the group at the time. If you join Fjellgruppa on trips you will meet exciting new students from various countries. Furthermore outdoor life is a good way of getting to know others and socialize as well as getting great experiences.
Every trip is unique!
You are also welcome to come up with suggestions about arranging trips, and if you are particularly eager there is a chance you can become a activity leader or become a part of our board of members. As a member you have a golden opportunity to get on to trip for a reasonable price. We arrange trips far and away, which for a poor student otherwise would be pretty expensive. Fjellgruppa covers travelling costs, lodging and dinner.
We also have a storage facility where you can rent various outdoor equipment. We have equitment like winter tents, gas/fuel stoves, maps, gps, avalanche beacons, sleds, crampons, snowshoes, shovels etc.
We do not have personal gear like skis, clothes, backpacks, sleeping bags etc. just gear that comes in use for a group on a trip. Only members of TSI can rent gear and the prices range from 50 to 300 kr.
Our storage room is located at KRAFT Sportscenter (framstredet 79) just behind UiT. We are open on mondays from 16.30 to 17.30. You will find us at the TSI office.
To attend our trips you have to be a member of TSI Fjellgruppa, all information will be communicated through a mailing list here. As a rule a mail will be sent out to our subscribers at least a week in advance. It is not possible to sign up for a trip before the mail is sent.
Do not hesitate, become a Fjellgruppa member today!
