We start early with attendance in Bergen at 07.30, at the world-famous Bryggen. Excited, we travel into the Sognefjord towards Aurland, one of the world's longest fjords. When you don't think the landscape can get any more beautiful, we enter the Aurlandsfjorden. The fjord landscape in Aurlandsfjorden and Nærøyfjorden is on the UNESCO World Heritage List, and it is not difficult to understand why. We leave our luggage at the accommodation and head towards the mountain Prest (1478 m above sea level). From the top we can see inwards towards Flåm and out into the Sognefjorden. After the tour, we check into the accommodation and have dinner together in the evening.
This fantastic week-long trip combines some of the most beautiful hikes in Western Norway with a visit to some of Norway's most beautiful regions. Aurlandsdalen, Hardanger, Trolltunga, and Folgefonna are on offer, and in between all this we also manage to squeeze in a trip to the mountain Prest, a train ride with the Flåmsbanen and a visit to Vøringsfossen. This is undoubtedly Norway at its very best.

On these trips, some of the stages are demanding. On level 3 mountain hikes, there are often some long stages, and / or a demanding summit push where it can get cold. You must stand up to reach the goal, and have a good training basis and good health before departure. We sleep in tents and / or in cabins and hotels, but you do not have to have experience with tent life to participate. If the trip includes activities such as kayaking, cycling, climbing, glacier, skiing / mountaineering, it is an advantage to have experience with this activity.
Activities / trips with low risk. There are usually few incidents, and they are usually of such a nature that they can be treated locally.
Training and preperations
This is a trip that is suitable for those who have walked quite a bit in the mountains before. We are on a trip five days in a row, but not all the trips are equally demanding. The terrain is hilly and there can be as much as 1200-1500 meters of altitude on some of the day trips.
Accommodation and food
We spend the night at what we believe are the nicest accommodations in the area. It is planned that everyone sleeps in a double/twin room with someone of the same sex. If you are traveling alone and want a single room, you can choose it when you sign up. This costs NOK 4,000 per person.
All meals are included as described in the day to day itinerary.
The boat from Bergen leaves early in the morning, so we recommend arriving the night before. Bergen is easily accessible by both train and plane from Oslo. It is also possible to reach Bergen by plane from other Norwegian cities. The trip ends in Voss. You have to arrange your own return journey from Voss.
We ask you to bring a large piece of luggage (we recommend a duffel bag, this is easier to handle in the terrain we travel in) for clothes, hygiene items and other necessary things that you need for the trip. We also ask you to bring a daypack that you can use when we are hiking.
Changes may occur
We reserve the right to change prices. The day by day program is a guideline and changes may occur. You can refer to our general travel conditions for more information.
On all our trips, we require you to have full health and accident insurance which will also cover any emergency transport home. Read more about travel insurance.
