You have to see it to believe it

In Fjord Norway, the mountains and fjords attract most of the attention. To experience them at their best, grab your hiking boots and get out there.

Try the most iconic hikes of Fjord Norway

Many of Fjord Norway's most spectacular hikes can be done as separate day trips on the same holiday, and they are most definitely easily accessible if you own (or rent) a car. Visit before or after the high season to be sure to avoid crowded trails. 

Pick and choose from some of the area's most iconic hikes, add some new adventures to your bucket list and create your own itinerary through the magnificent fjord landscapes.

Travel along the Discovery Route

Discovery Route is the historic tourist route (along the road RV13) through Fjord Norway, from Stavanger to Bergen. The route was established in the 1880s, when travelers came by horse and carriage to experience the spectacular landscape of mountains, glaciers, crystal clear rivers, roaring waterfalls, and pristine fjords.

Along the Discovery Route you will find iconic hiking trips and some of the most visited tourist attractions in Norway; Preikestolen and Trolltunga. Historical and designer hotels will be your home.

    7. Use a map and a compass. Always know where you are.
    8. Don’t be ashamed to turn around.
