There are four different seasons in the Norwegian mountains. Summer is the time for hiking across expansive plains and up to dramatic peaks. Thousands of kilometres of marked trails and hundreds of serviced and unserviced cabins await you, making the Norwegian mountain wilderness easily accessible. Standing 2,000 metres above sea level with views through 360 degrees does something to you. It opens up your mind.
In autumn, nature is busy preparing for winter and the landscape glows red and yellow. The fresh air and bright colours are extreme. It is a time for cloudberries and blueberries, and hunting grouse and reindeer.
And so comes winter, draping the landscape in its pure, white cloak. Norway provides alpine skiing facilities for most people, with families and extreme skiers able to find suitable conditions, and cross-country skiing trails prepared throughout the country. Do as so many Norwegians do, pop some oranges and chocolate in your backpack, clip on your skis and experience the sense of freedom that comes from striking out across the endless open spaces.
Winter is the longest of the mountain seasons, but when spring arrives, nature comes back to life, once again enticing visitors to explore the mountains and valleys on foot or in the saddle, and fish in the countless mountain lakes.
