Went for a four hour hike in Aurlandsdalen. As we are not that experienced we opted to take only the final leg and even start right after berdalstunnelen and hike to Vassbygd which reduced the trip to 10 km. But 10 spectacular kilometers with great...More

Use 2-3 days on this hike beginning either at Finse or Geitrygghytta. The route goes to about 1700m altitude and ends at close to sea level, so many types of landscape are passed ranging from barren stone/snow to lush narrow valleys with rivers and lakes...More

This is a great hike! It was challenging in parts but doable for casual day hikers like us. Best thing about this hike is that the scenery is so varied - lake, river, waterfalls and mountains. The first sight of the summer farm in the...More

This hiking route contains everything. High mountains, Summer farms, fantastic waterfalls and an amazing pot-hole. The route is appr. 2 miles, and is mostly down-hill. Do not miss it. Absolutely worth the trip
