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.

    Safety in the mountains

    Return to hike another day

    Norway is an incredible place to explore, with untamed mythical landscapes, mountains, valleys, and fjords. Before you enter the outdoors, get familiar with the nine simple rules of the Norwegian mountain code to help you stay safe.

    1. Plan your trip and inform others about the route you have selected.
    2. Adapt the planned routes according to ability and conditions.
    3. Pay attention to the weather and the avalanche warnings.
    4. Be prepared for bad weather and frost, even on short trips.
    5. Bring the necessary equipment so you can help yourself and others.
    6. Choose safe routes. Recognize avalanche terrain and unsafe ice.
    7. Use a map and a compass. Always know where you are.
    8. Don’t be ashamed to turn around.
    9. Conserve your energy and seek shelter if necessary.

    Read the mountain code with supplementary comments.
