The excursion was completed in week 36 and went to Harstad, Sortland, Skånland and Evenskjær. In addition, there were a preparatory seminar at the university before the trip to introduce the students to indigenous issues in the region. The themes of the program this year was related to the meeting between the Vikings and the Sami, reindeer husbandry on Hinnøya, Sami institution building, cultural heritage and contemporary culture.
