Cold Response 2014

Exercise Cold Response is carried out in the counties of Nordland and Troms from 7 to 21 March.

Cold Response is a Norwegian-led winter exercise. The main purpose of this year’s winter exercise is to rehearse high intensity operations in winter conditions.




Richard Cantrill (Royal Marines, United Kingdom) has participated in the exercise several times. This is his experience:
Richard Cantrill, Royal Marines

«To us, the essential value of Cold Response is: Testing the individual skills, exercising at Unit level in large-scale, free-play environment with few exercise limitations (compared to the UK), as well as working alongside our treasured allies. Northern Norway is a particularly demanding environment and the main challenges are unchanging. My team must learn, or re-learn, how to survive, move and fight in the demanding terrain and conditions of North Norway.»
