Ah the Land of the Fjords, what a spectacular landscape to behold. Here giant rifts pierce through the rugged mountains, waterfalls plunge into crystal clear rivers and dramatic forests hug the vast horizons. UNESCO listed fjords are just part of the scenery here, with the power of nature being an awesome backdrop of everyday life and meaning an adventure lies around every corner.  Our 5 day Norwegian adventure begins in Bergen, the colourful gateway to the fjords that also happens to be a compact city of great culture and cuisine – but we’re not here for the city.  Make the most of Bergen’s trendy bars and galleries on day one, before spending the rest of your Norwegian getaway embracing all things outdoors and getting your lungs pumping with the fresh fjord air. Prepare to cruise across the open fjords in a private boat, to go glacier walking across blue ice and to kayak through Norway’s vast panoramas of epic beauty. There’s goat farms to hike to for local cheese tastings and traditional Norwegian dinners to devour. With endless valleys and waterfalls, it may take twice as long to reach anywhere yet this is simply due to the infinite photo opportunities en route. Have your cameras and crampons at the ready.

  • Hop aboard your private RIB boat and cruise across the fjords
  • Hike to Leim mountain goat farm for authentic cheese tasting and lunch
  • Enjoy scenic drives with epic views and photo stops, including the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Nærøydalen Valley
  • Hike through the vast beauty of Jostedalsbreen National Park
  • Don your crampons and ice picks for a glacier walk across Haugabreen or Nigardsbreen glacier
  • Go sea kayaking in a stunning fjord
  • Feel the refreshing spray of Tvindefossen waterfall
  • Tuck into a traditional Norwegian three course dinner

Itinerary

Day 1: LET THE ADVENTURE BERGEN

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: FJORDS, FARMS AND MARIFJØRA

Today we’re leaving the city behind and embracing all things outdoors. 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 3-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: ICY HIKES ACROSS NIGARDSBREEN GLACIER

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.
