Navigate the crevasses and ice towers of the mighty Jostedalsbreen glacier using crampons and ropes. Spy out seals and porpoises as you kayak across the mirror-still waters of  Lustrafjorden. Zip around scenic fjords via private RIB boat, and feast on a three-course Norwegian dinner

 

Have your ice-pick handy for our pulse-racing getaway to the remote wilderness of Norway. The Land of the Fjords is a fabulous place to stretch your limits and smash your comfort zone. The concept of “friluftsliv” is central to the Norwegian way of life, and means having an intimate connection with the Great Outdoors. It’s one of the reasons why Norway is often ranked as one of the happiest nations on earth. Our high-octane adventure here gets right to the heart of “friluftsliv” in a vast panorama of epic beauty. Channel your inner mountaineer as we traverse the icy expanse of the Jostedalsbreen glacier, kitted out with crampons, ropes and ice-picks. Sea-kayak the divine blue waters of Lustrafjorden, and soak in an extraordinary alpine landscape. Feel the whip of the mountain air on your cheeks, as we zip across the fjords by private RIB boat, with forest-lined valleys and wide open skies all around. Our five-day escape here sees us hike to a goat’s cheese farm, feast on a glacier picnic and devour a traditional three-course meal; all while drinking in the most incredible horizons known to mankind. We’ll also soak in the creative vibes of colourful harbour-side city Bergen, and knock back a few craft beers in Voss, Norway’s adventure capital. Flashpackers, are you ready to stretch yourself in the surrounds of Norway’s natural splendour? Then, come fuel up on the power of the wild.

Itinerary

Day 1: LET THE ADVENTURE BERGEN

Get to know your fellow Flashpackers in the hip and colourful city of Bergen, with its art galleries, restaurants and a thriving craft beer scene

 

Surrounded by mountains and fjords lies the charming city of Bergen, the starting point of your Norwegian adventure. On the shores of a North Sea inlet, this former capital looks fresh out of a storybook with its colourful wooden houses and picturesque harbour. After touching down in Bergen airport, we’ll whisk you into the heart of the city to your hotel. We recommend getting an early flight so that you have plenty of time to explore this awesome city. Here you can revel in its beautifully preserved history, mooch around the art galleries or tuck into freshly caught seafood along the Fisketorget harbour. Be sure to check out the UNESCO waterfront of Brygge or climb the nearby Fløyen mountain for views above the city and coastal islands. There’s also a buzzing bar culture here to enjoy, perfect for grabbing drinks and getting to know your fellow Flashpackers. Here’s to new adventures!

Day 2: PRIVATE BOATS AND ALPINE FEASTS

Marvel at the epic scenery of Route 16, glide across the fjords by private RIB boat, hike to a goat’s cheese farm and feast on a three-course supper

 

Today we’re leaving the city behind and embracing all things outdoors. After an early start, get ready for one of the most scenic drives of your life as we head into the fjord-filled wilderness. We’ll drive along Route 16, stopping along the way to enjoy breathtaking viewpoints of the vast fjords with your cameras at the ready. One scenic stop will be the Tvindefossen waterfall where you can admire its cascading beauty and feel the refreshing spray of the plunging water. We’ll then drive onwards into the stunning Nærøydalen valley, a UNESCO World Heritage Site with all the views to prove it. Afterwards, we’ll head on to the small village of Gudvangen where we’ll be swapping four wheels for a RIB boat. Cruise across the open water to Skjerdal Wharf where we’ll hike for 1.5 hours, surrounded by fresh fjord views and waterfalls. Our destination is a quintessentially Norwegian experience, lunch at Leim mountain goat farm. Here you’ll learn the secrets of making authentic goats cheese, before tasting the different varieties and tucking into a lunch of local produce. Enjoy the beautiful hike back down to Skjerdal before continuing towards Marifjøra, passing the Stegastein viewpoint above the Aurlandsfjorden and endless views of mountains, valleys and lakes. We’ll also stop by the timber-clad beauty of the Borgund Stave Church, dating back to 1180 and one of the best preserved stave churches in Norway with its dragon heads and rusting carvings. Upon arrival in Marifjøra, you’ll find a tiny and quaint Norwegian village nestled within the stunning Lustrafjorden. Here a traditional three-course Norwegian dinner awaits, including a bonus secret taste of a Norwegian speciality…

 

Please note: for certain departures we will be staying in Førde instead of Marifjøra, however, the itinerary remains the same.

Day 3: ICE-HIKE THE NIGARDSBREEN GLACIER

Grab ice picks and crampons to navigate the jagged glacier terrain of Jostedalsbreen National Park, with a picnic lunch en-route

 

Today you’ll need to wrap up and put on your trusty walking boots, fresh for a day of hiking through the mountains and glaciers of Jostedalsbreen National Park. Over half of this park is covered by the mighty Jostedalsbreen glacier, the largest in mainland Europe that leaves the remaining landscape an exciting mix of bare mountains, lush vegetation and jagged glacier terrain. After a hearty breakfast, we’ll cruise across a glacial lake on a short boat ride into the heart of the valley. From here there will be a 15 minute hike to the glacier edge where it’s time to don your crampons and get roped up. With your ice axe firmly in hand, we’ll navigate across the ice for 2.5 hours of discovering deep blue crevasses and high ice towers. Embrace your inner Bear Grylls as you see if there are caves to discover and and ice tunnels to crawl through. You’ll need to be fairly sure-footed as it can get pretty steep at times but the natural steps in the ice will help pave the way. (Click here to read about fitness levels on Flash Pack adventures). Enroute we’ll stop for a picnic lunch looking out to views of the surrounding glacier and mountains. The rest of the afternoon will be spent hiking through the epic scenery of the national park, covering a total of 5km in the fresh fjord air. Or if it’s early in the season with high snowfall, we will do the Molden hike instead for awesome views across the fjord and mountains. Either way, this heart pumping day is perfect for getting back to nature in true Norwegian style.

 

Please note: For the departures staying in Førde, we will be hiking across the icy beauty of the Haugabreen Glacier instead.
