The "Walking The Fjords" tour starts from and ends in Bergen. It is a trekking and hiking tour that takes 9 days taking you through Vik, Breheimen National Park, Voss and 5 other destinations in Norway. "Walking The Fjords" is a guided small group tour that includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

The Norwegian fjords are rightly ranked as one of the natural wonders of the world. No visitor leaves underwhelmed by the contrast of snow-capped mountains, steep green hillsides and powerful waterfalls plunging into calm, clear fjordic waters. Most tourists come by coach and crowd into a few busy hotspots, whereas we discover these classic landscapes on foot, providing unique access to areas of tranquil beauty and high panoramic viewpoints.

In the fjords, we stay in two locations. Our first base is Nes Farm: a cosy family-run guesthouse looking towards the Feigumfoss waterfall across Lustrafjord. Our second is Fjærland Fjordstove Hotel: also family run, this time on the waterfront in the town of Fjærland. Both neighbour Sognefjord (known as the King of the Fjords), Jotunheimen (the highest mountains in Norway), and the massive ice cap of Jostedalsbreen.
