Starting in Geilo and ending in Oslo, the "Hiking Norway's Fjordland" tour is a self-guided walking trip that takes 8 days. You will travel through Oslo, Finse and Flam in Norway. "Hiking Norway's Fjordland" is a private tour which includes accommodation in hotels, transport, meals and others.

Walk through the natural wonders of western Norway's pristine fjords, fells and moorlands. This trip is the ideal introduction into the magic of Norwegian hiking. You will walk from several centres using easy transportation on trains and boats in between. From Oslo or Bergen you travel by rail to some of the wildest, most spectacular, classic “picture postcard” settings within the realms of Norwegian mountain and fjordland.
Many people enjoy taking a leisurely cruise up the coast to see the beauty of Norway's fjords from below. But on this tour you can be looking down and walking amongst the highlands, a much more engaging experience. The specially crafted hiking route embraces the famous Hardangervidda area of western Norway where there is the potential for a heady mix of highland walking through the manifestations of the last Ice Age. The retreating glaciers once overwhelmed and moulded this landscape; gouging out the great coastal grooves which, with post glacial rising sea levels, have become the fjords. Of these, the beautiful Sognefjord is the longest and deepest in all of Norway, extending to the town of Flåm on a section called the Aurlandsfjord.
You can choose from a wide range of hikes on this trip to take in the highlands, which lead you right up onto the glaciers edge. It is even possible to go out onto the ice to take an excursion. We have also composed a selection of lusher walks down into the pastoral settings of the Flåm and Aurland Valleys. These are furnished with forests, farmsteads, cascades and churches.
All in all an unforgettable hiking experience in Norway, especially if the Nordic Gods favour you with good weather and that you read your notes carefully.
