Hike all of Norway’s best trails in the mountains and above the Fjords with our 10 Day, Women Only, Small Group Hiking Adventure Tour in Norway.

Norway is every avid hiker’s dream world with glaciated peaks, exposed trails with panoramic views, roaring waterfalls, fairy tale scenery, and dramatic cliffs plunging into deep fjords!

This hiking tour has been carefully curated and “in the field” tested to include only the best hikes in Norway. Everyday you will be immersed in spectacular beauty!

In the mountains, you’ll hike high above a waterfall to a small farm for a rustic farm-to-table picnic. You’ll trek cabin to cabin in the “Home of Giants” enjoying the tranquility of Jotunheimen National Park. You’ll hike through the Black Valley surrounded by towering peaks steeped in all the drama of Norwegian mountaineering history. You’ll hesitantly look over the edge of Besseggen Ridge and down 2,300 feet to the turquoise lake below as you scramble your way up. You’ll enjoy the warm welcome of gracious Mountain Cabin hosts and cozy fireplaces.

Once in the Fjords, you’ll strap on crampons, grab an ice axe, and rope up with the rest of the group to explore Norway’s third largest glacier (Don’t worry! You’ll learn how to use your equipment!). You’ll spend a long, challenging day hiking up to Trolltunga, but stepping out onto the narrow ledge surrounded by the vastness is worth it! You’ll enjoy a picnic dinner on the famous Pulpit Rock just as the sun is setting. You’ll call upon all of your bravery to step out onto the Kjerag Boulder that remains wedged 3,300 feet above the fjords.

Not only will you play in the outdoors like a Norwegian, but you’ll dine like one too! Norwegians pride themselves in serving local foods – prepared according to traditional recipes and inspired by international cuisine. Meals are made from ingredients found in the area. Reindeer, anyone? Feast upon berries gathered from the forests and garden vegetables grown organically. Sourcing local reduces the impact of pollution from transportation while also providing fresh, healthy ingredients. Oh, and the butter! This is something we can sink our teeth into!

Your nights will be mostly spent in traditional, Norwegian Mountain Cabins and tourist hotels. You’ll be engulfed in the atmosphere, community, and tradition of Norwegian hospitality. You’ll be traveling, not touring, in Norway!
