From a standpoint of breathtaking panoramas, no other destination is more impressive than Norway. Pristine mountains, glistening glaciers, pounding waterfalls, mirror-smooth lakes, the Viking story, and seemingly endless vistas of unforgettable fjords make Norway a walking explorer’s delight!
Since 1991, we’ve been sharing the many delights of Norway and her compelling combination of stunning scenery and intriguing Viking history with our walking friends. After months of research in 2018 in collaboration with local partners, and 3 weeks of intense on-site exploration, we offered a completely revised Norway walking program to two groups of walkers in the summer of 2019!
We hope to return in 2024 in late June to enjoy the glorious long days of Midsummer and the midnight sun above the Arctic Circle.
Norway is a magical place. It is difficult to overstate the wonder of its natural beauty. Join us to discover the truth of the statement that there is No Place like Norway!
- Bergen – perhaps the center of fjord Norway, and home of a picturesque medieval center that dates to Norway’s involvement in the medieval Baltic Sea trading consortium called the Hanseatic League
- Coastal cruise – taking us past coastal communities to the fjords of the Nordfjord area, introducing a tiny fraction of Norway’s 58,000+ kilometers of coastline (the USA coastline is under 20,000 km).
- Nordfjord, Geirangerfjord, and Sognefjord areas – with walks along the coast and amongst breathtaking panoramas offering a variety of jaw-dropping landscapes
- Jotunheimen National Park – Home of the Giants, showcasing breathtaking views of this magnificent national area, also the starting point for our passage across Scandinavia’s highest mountain road—Sognefjell National Tourist Route.
- Land of the Midnight Sun extension – where we cross the Arctic Circle for several days of “only-in-the-Nordic-North” walks and activities and a continuation of Norway’s incredible coastal panoramas.
- Sami (Laplander) culture – a chance to connect with Sami culture and learn about this fascinating indigenous group, most commonly connected with reindeer husbandry, who live only in this part of the world.
