Doing Mountains and Fjords in Norway
Submitted by christine on 2006-11-21 01:42:01 (via www.adventureliving.com)
I think I had lunch in every place you could think of, but reading this article made me realize I’ve never eaten from the arms of a glacier! I found this story interesting, and I’m surprised to discover Norway as a great place for hiking, trekking, and of course ice climbing. The fjords are amazing, too. Bon appetite when reading this travelogue!

Very nice indeed!! As a Norwegian I can recommend Norway for everybody. We do have some wonderful nature. Although it's pretty expensive to travel and live in Norway, we do have the sights to see! And - there are a lot of terrain to cover for everybody. I have been to most parts of the country, and they all have their natural charm. So - come visit us!!! We'd love to have you!!!

Yeah, I did a similar route last summer, pluss I am Norwegian myself, so yeah, I´d say I agree. You might not be as lucky as these were with the weather, as in the west of Norway it usually rains quite alot. But the foregin friends I´ve brought to Norway have enjoyed it even if we had a little rough weather. And yes, I´d think the primary reason to visit Norway would be to go hiking, mounteneering or sometning else to do with nature, because that´s where Norway excells and have something to offer.. Enjoy! :)

If you like trekking, Norway is the perfect place. There is no restrictions on where you can go, no park police, etc. If you don't like (or can't afford) going in an organized group (I know I don't), you should check out the Norwegian Trekking Association http://www.turistforeningen.no/english/
They can help with tips of routes, places to stay. There are hundreds of cabins and guest houses associated with the organization, where you can stay (for a relative low prize) while you are trekking. Otherwise, camping is a good alternative. I recommend especially two areas for trekking: Jotunheimen (steep mountains) and Hardangervidda (mountain plateau). - Best, Papa Bacon

They are telling the truth about Norway. As the others have commented, they were lucky with the weather. A good time to travel in Norway is the beginning of August, I believe that that is when we have the most days with sun.

Trekking is one long-lasting activities that draws reiterate visitors to the country. Consequently, Nepal is the definitive objective for the trekking supporter.
