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.
Very few places in the world have such varied scenery in one and the same region as Fjord Norway. You will find fabulous hiking areas along the largest fjords, and several national parks offer great walks in everything from barren glacial landscapes to lush forests. Climb wonderful mountains by the coast, experience fantastic mountains that rise straight up from the narrow fjords, or join a safe walk on the blue ice of a glacier arm.
A hiking holiday in Fjord Norway can be enjoyed by all types of people – you do not have to be super fit. Those who seek big adventures will find them, but there are also numerous short, gentle paths that are perfect for families with children or anyone who simply prefer to take it easy.
Just make sure you find out which hiking routes are suitable for your level. You can read more about safety and how to prepare for your hiking adventure.
There are a multitude of paths for self-guided hikes available. For more challenging climbs, we recommended that you join a group trip or book a qualified guide. We recommend Hvitserk as a local specialist.
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.
