It is wise to consult the experts when planning a hiking trip. Discover Norway has tour suggestions and packages for every taste and level.
Planning a hiking holiday can be a hefty task that involves numerous Google searches, saved bookmarks, price comparisons, map scrutinizing, time estimations, contact form submissions and emails. It is almost more exhausting than the hike to the top of Galdhøpiggen.
Alternatively, you can find a tour operator and let them do the hard work for you. This can be a smart move if you are new to Norway or if you simply don't have hours to spend in front of the computer. After all, they probably know pretty much everything you need to know, in one place.
