The aim of this article is to analyze how Norwegian friluftsliv (Educational Outdoor Activity) teachers in upper secondary school Idrettsfag (Sport and Physical Education) reflect on safety. Six focus group interviews from six upper secondary schools were conducted. A conceptual framework of Wackerhausen’s structure of reflection was used to analyze the interviews. The findings show the objects of the teachers’ reflections, the conceptual resources they use when reflecting on safety, and their knowledge of interest. Different safety practices were identified. In concluding, there is a reflection on how safety can be dealt with, both in the teaching of friluftsliv and in the upper secondary school friluftsliv curriculum.
