Norway 75

In June and July 2018, a team of 8 consisting of serving and former Royal Marines embarked on an historic 2000 mile journey.

Starting at the most North Eastern point of Norway, the self sufficient team cycled an average of 200km a day and sea kayak up to 50km a day in order to cross the length of the country’s coastline and retell heroic stories of WWII Combined Commando /SOE operations in unique and captivating ways.

This culminated in a 75th Anniversary commemoration of the infamous Telemark raids – the successful Allied operation that halted Nazi Germany’s program to create a nuclear weapon.

They linked up with the Norwegian Home Guard, local historians and families who have intricate connections to the various operations. Throughout the challenge, the Norway 75 team aimed to help raise awareness for the Royal Marines Charity and its efforts to support good mental health.

On the 19th July, after 18 months of planning, 2000 miles across the Norwegian coast by bike and kayak, 6 Commando raids revisited and countless new relationships built they finished their epic journey by commemorating the infamous Operation Gunnerside.
