Route Profile           
Level 3 out of 5.  These tours require more of the participants. It will probably be a bit demanding to reach the destination, but if you like to exercise, or have been exercising prior to the departure, you will have life-long experience together with your fellow travellers. Each day we hike up to six to eight hours at an easy pace. It will be 1000-1200 meters of elevation at the most.

The hardest hike is the hike to Trolltunga; it can take up to 12 hours all together. The other days will be about 4-6 hours of hiking. You should expect scrambling and the path is rocky and a bit slippery if it rains. You should have hiking experience from similar conditions. Good fitness and some hiking experience are also fine.

DAY 1: FROM OSLO TO THE MOUNTAINS

We meet outside Oslo Opera house at 10 a.m.; the guide will pick you up there. Look for our logo on a minibus. Together you go for a four-hour drive towards the mountains. As you drive, the settlements get smaller, and you will get a glimpse of Norway`s many rural areas. On the way we will stop by Heddal Stave Church, and have a look at the charming old building, this is one of Norway's largest stave churches. Our destination for the day is a mountain cabin located around 1000 meters above sea level called Haukeliseter. Rough and wild nature surrounds Haukeliseter. Norwegians on a mountain holiday highly approve the mountain lodge, and every year Norwegians of every age visit the area. We do a short hike to make sure all the equipment is ready for the next day. After that, we have a traditional three-course dinner and go through the itinerary for the next days with the guide.  Dinner & Lodging provided. Breakfast, lunch, dinner & lodging provided.

 

DAY 2: TROLLTUNGA

People come from all over the world to experience Trolltunga, and today it's our turn! People come from all over the world to experience Trolltunga, and today it’s our turn! In English, it is named the Troll's Tongue. Trolltunga is a spectacular mountain formation situated 1,100 meters above sea level, and 700 meters above the lake of Ringedal. Trolltunga is a long hike (10-12 hours), the longest hike of the trip, so we start off early in the morning, and will have dinner quite late. Even though the hike is tough, it is both doable and worth it! We will have time to relax at the top, enjoy the view, and take memorable photos on the plateau. This place inspired many Norwegian artists during the Romantic era and led to some of the most remarkable artworks ever coming out of Norway. In a case of bad weather, we have the opportunity to swap day 2 and 3 and get the best weather possible on Trolltunga. Breakfast, lunch, dinner & lodging provided.
 

DAY 3: UP TO THE ETERNAL ICE - GLACIER WALK AT FOLGEFONNA

From Rosendal we make our way up to Folgefonna and go for a full day walk (4-6 hours) on the glacier. Folgefonna is Norway's third biggest glacier. Our adventure starts in the Folgefonna National Park. Hiking on the glacier plateau is not particularly hard, but it is a truly magnificent experience walking roped up on the 350m thick carpet of ice! When the weather allows, it is a spectacular view of the surrounding fjord landscape from the glacier. During this day we will walk at a gentle pace, and take the time to enjoy our company, and beautiful scenery. We spend the evening and night at our small hotel in Rosendal. Breakfast, lunch, dinner & lodging provided.
 

DAY 4: PREIKESTOLEN (THE PULPIT ROCK)

On this day we head towards one of the most famous mountain hikes in the whole world, Preikestolen! From the hotel, we will drive (around 4 hours) through the beautiful coastal scenery between Folgefonna and Preikestolen. Tonight, we will rest in the spectacular Preikestolen Mountain Lodge. The new lodge opened in 2008, and have won several prizes for its unique architecture. During the day, it is often a lot of people visiting the plateau. Therefore, we choose to hike in the evening; here we can enjoy the sunset and a meal after most tourists have left this popular destination. The trek to Preikestolen is a four-hour round trip, and the beautiful landscape has resulted in numerous international top rankings. Among these are CNN, who listed the Pulpit Rock on top of the bucket list of natural wonders. Breakfast, lunch, dinner & lodging provided.
 

DAY 5: THE LONGEST WOODEN STAIRWAY IN THE WORLD

We leave the lodge after breakfast and take the ferry into the mystical fjord landscape in Lysefjorden. From the ferry, will be able to see Preikestolen from a completely different view than last night. Within two hours we arrive in Flørli. The village is a roadless hamlet by the fjord, surrounded by mountains rising over 1,000 meters into the sky.  From Flørli we hike up the longest wooden stairway in the world – 4444 steps right up from the fjord to the mountain. 

In Flørli we will stay in a simple but cozy guesthouse by the fjord. There is only one accommodation here, and it has a lower standard then the other places we stay at on the trip, but what Flørli lacks in fanciness, the place makes up in charm. We get a very nice farewell dinner, while the hosts prepare a bonfire or a wood-fired hot-tub on the old ferry quay! Breakfast, lunch, dinner & lodging provided.
 

*On the departure starting on July 7, August 4 and September 15 we will arrive later at Flørli.
 

DAY 6: LYSEBOTN AND MOUNT KJERAG 

Another well-known trekking destination is on today's program. We start by taking a morning ferry to Lysebotn – the innermost part of Lysefjorden. From here we head for Mount Kjerag. It is situated 1,000 meters above the Lysefjord, and the round trip itself takes around 6 hours. At this time of year, it might also be an excellent chance to meet the base jumpers who jump out of the 1000 meters cliff!

After the trek, we return to Oslo in our minibus (6-7 hours). During the drive back, we will talk about our fantastic trip, and sum up all the experiences that we have had together. We also stop at a café so that those who want can have dinner on their way back. Arrival in Oslo in the evening, around 9-10 p.m., so we recommend staying in Oslo to the next day. Breakfast & lunch provided.

  • Hike Trolltunga, Preikestolen and Kjerag.
  • Hike in Hardangervidda, one of Norway's wildest National Parks and home to native Reindeer herds.
  • Explore a day on the Glacier in Folgefonna National Park roped up with helmets, ice axes and harnesses.
  • Take an express ferry up Lysefjorden (The Fjord of Light) between sheer cliffs on either side.
