HIKING THROUGH THE FJORDS OF NORWAY

Norway is a true mecca for hiking enthusiasts and nature lovers. For this round trip, we have selected three fantastic places to stay, each offering great nature experiences and excellent hiking routes. 

This tour features the possibility of a day trip to Norway’s most impressive rock formation, the 600 m high Preikestolen, which rises majestically and almost vertically from the Lysefjord. In addition, a hike on Besseggen is an option – one of the most spectacular and popular hiking trails in Norway.

The view of the deep blue Lake Bessvatnet on one side and and the green Lake Gjendet on the other is truly unique. Experienced hikers have the opportunity to prove their skills on the challenging and nerve-wracking all-day hike to the imposing Trolltunga. 

A journey that will appeal to hiking experts as well less experienced hikers and families!

We recommend a hike along Queen Sonja’s Panorama Trail or through Husedalen, past four impressive waterfalls. The challenging full day hike to Trolltunga is suitable for hiking trained individuals.

The relatively short stage of the day leads to Oslo. We recommend a detour to Hadeland Glassworks in Jevnaker. In addition to sightseeing in Oslo there is also the possibility for sports activities in the area or hike on one of the famous paths near Holmenkollen.
