Cold Response 2016

​Cold Response is the Norwegian Armed Forces' main winter exercise. It is held every other year, and our partners are invited to participate.

​​​Cold Response 2016 will be held in the Trøndelag counties in Central Norway from 19 February to 22 March. 15,000 military personnel from 14 nations will participate in Cold Response. The main exercise phase lasts from 2 to 9 March.

The main purpose​ of the exercise is to train personnel in how to conduct combat operations under cold weather conditions. Norway is ideally suited for winter activities, and it gives par​ticipants unique challenges they might not get to experience at home.​
