Exciting glacier walk, kayaking on beautiful fjords, spectacular treks, a historic cycling trip and Europe's best known train journey are a few of the highlights on this week-long trip in Fjord Norway. We take you to several of Norway's most famous attractions – as well as a few hidden gems that very few people know about.
With kayaks, mountain bikes and hiking boots, you will get to experience fjords and waterfalls in the land of the midnight sun. We gather up at Finse on the Hardangervidda mountain plateau, the highest-altitude station on the famous railway between Oslo and Bergen, and end the tour at Flam in the famous Sognefjorden.
Surrounded by mountainous wilderness and national parks we will hike on the glaciers of Hardangerjøkulen, and cycle the famous Navvies' Road (Rallarvegen). Through world-class natural scenery, we will cycle a 1,700-metre descent down from the mountain to Flam by the Sognefjord.
Then a different view and experience await us, as we kayak on the clear water of the fjords. We go from one beautiful place to the next, passing substantial, impressive waterfalls, isolated villages and wild nature. The narrow Nærøyfjord is a branch of the massive Sognefjord, and this is where we go on an overnight kayak tour. The fjord is on UNESCO's world heritage list. The 18-kilometre-long (11 miles) fjord is up to 500 meters (1,600 ft.) deep in some parts and only 250 meters (820ft.) wide at the narrowest. Widely famous for being one of the world's most beautiful and dramatic fjords. Last but not least; With a truly magnificent view of the fjords, you get to experience real western Norwegian landscape by foot as we hike the mountain Prest. See the beautiful fjords from above, the breath-taking landscape will marvel you.
The first two nights we stay in a comfortable mountain hotel, one night in a guesthouse by the fjord, then we go deeper into nature and sleep in cozy tents so that we can get connect with the Norwegian landscape, and then back to the guesthouse for our last dinner together.
On this hiking, biking and kayaking tour, we guarantee views and photographic scenery that will take your breath away – every single day!
