Discover the best of Norway on this 10-day tour along the northwest coast of fjord Norway. From our converted bus we discover the spectacular landscapes of Norway. Expect waterfalls, glaciers, fjords, lakes, islands and untouched nature. The bus is not only our means of transport through the Norwegian wilderness, but also our place to sleep. In our bus you sleep in all comfort in the middle of nature.

 

We start our journey in Alesund on the northwest coast of fjord Norway. From there we head towards the largest glacier on the European mainland, Jostedalsbreen. Our journey immediately starts with a highlight, because we will take you on the Haugabreen glacier. The following days we stay close to the Jostedalsbreen glacier and do some hikes to viewpoints with beautiful views. The real dare-devils can optionally reach one of these views via a via ferrata. After 3 days we drive further north where some UNESCO fjords are waiting for us. The famous trollstigen route takes us from the Geirangerfjord to the Tafjord and finally all the way to the highest vertical wall in Europe the Troll Wall. We spend a day in the tafjord and explore this fjord with our kayak. The biggest challenge of this trip is the ascent of the Troll Wall, the walk to the top of the Troll Wall is long and demanding. After our demanding hike, we end our fjord adventure in Andalsnes, where we relax by the fjord water. 

Physical Level:
This is an active trip. Some of the hikes we offer are physically demanding (more than 1000m of elevation gain). If you want to fully enjoy all the activities, a good physical condition is recommended.

  • Kan ik het fysiek wel aan?

  • Hoe bereid ik mij voor?
