World Beard and Moustache Championships; Beard Team USA Group Trip to Norway

The 2011 World Beard and Moustache Championships will be held in Trondhjem (also known as Trondheim), Norway. The World Beard Championships website has organized a group and deals to travel there in order to participate or just enjoy the festivities, with Beard Team USA. The full trip runs from May 8 to May 19 in order to be at the World Beard Championships event on May 15, and also to enjoy other sites and activities around the time of the event.

Interested parties can join in on the fun with the Beard Team USA group, whether traveling with them or meeting up with them for the various activities. More information about this can be found on the World Beard Championships website, in the post about the trip.

Please note that the head of the site told me that more people can come along with his group, however, the cabins are now full on the boat from Bergen to Trondhjem, so other arrangements will need to be made for that part of the trip such as sleeping on deck or taking the train.

He also sent me the itinerary for the trip, which includes departures from both Seattle and New York, with Beard Team Canada meeting up with the group after flying in from Toronto; a short stay in Iceland and walking tour (and time for other activities); travel to Norway and walking tour (with time for other activities); cruise or other travel to Trondhjem; The Norwegian Moustache Club welcome to group (and friends); registration for Championships; The 2011 World Beard and Moustache Championships; trips around Trondhjem; parade and celebrations for Norway’s national holiday (similar to USA Independence Day); travel home.

Please note that to travel with his group on the trip, payment in full must be made by April 1, 2011. All the information needed for that is in his post, plus there is a contact link on his site if you have additional questions. Otherwise, you can make your own arrangements and meet up with them as you wish along the way. Registrants will be given an itinerary for the trip and some very helpful advice regarding money, what to take, what to do in preparation for the trip, etc.

Big thanks to Phil for such a quick and helpful response to my inquiry. Be sure to stop by the World Beard Championships website for lots of great photos and information about this fun annual event and other great stuff. GO BEARD TEAM USA! *WOOT*
