Bergen, Trolltunga and the best hikes in Fjord Norway

This Adventure Tour combines the best hikes of Fjord Norway. Trolltunga, UNESCO listed harbour of Bergen, magnificent fjord views while hiking, and close interactions with the local culture.

From the Hanseatic Wharf and UNESCO listed harbour of Bergen, our guide and guests will experience the most beautiful places in the whole of Fjord Norway. From both the waterside and mountainside the fjords of Norway will be experienced while hiking and trekking. The long fjords have been a natural harbour for people in decades. People living here have ensured that the beautiful agricultural landscape has been maintained throughout centuries. Its natural beauty is a well-known story, and on this tour, we combine famous day hikes such as Trolltunga, with other beautiful, but less known hiking destinations. In our opinion, the best hikes in Fjord Norway. 

Along with fellow explorers, we will experience some of the most spectacular hikes the region has to offer. While moving from one small village to another, we will get to know the local culture, understand their way of living, and get to learn how history and nature have formed their way of life. Impressive architecture, enormous waterfalls, locally produced food, the world-known scenery on the Troll's tongue, and small family owned hotels with high-quality awaits on this tour. On top of this, we will get to hike one of Norway's biggest glaciers, and enjoy a sheep cuisine especially known for the area. 

Small family owned hotels have a certain warm atmosphere. Like us, our guests prefer staying in locally owned hotels, eating local food, and enjoying the beautiful nature and local culture. As always, we travel in small groups with other people who desire to experience and learn. Are you curious to learn more about Norway, hiking beautiful mountains, take beautiful photographies or simply enjoy the natural wonders of Norway? Then this combination of the best hikes in Fjord Norway is the perfect tour.

Level 3 out of 5. Please read more about our level of difficulty here. The hardest hike is the hike to Trolltunga, it can take up to 12 hours all together. The other days will be about 4-6 hours hiking. You should expect some scrambling and the path is sometimes rocky and a bit slippery (if it rains). You should have some hiking experience from similar conditions. Good fitness and some hiking experience are also fine.

We stay at what we think are the most unique and welcoming accommodation in the area. If you travel alone you share a same-sex twin room, but it might also be possible with single rooms, please let us know if you would like to pay extra for this. Most nights we stay in en-suite rooms, but not all. The small hotels we live in have a limited capacity, and the single supplement is 6500 NOK for the whole trip. All meals are included as described in the day to day program. 


There is no weight limit, other then what your airline has imposed, but, as the group and luggage will all have to fit into our minibus, we do ask you not to bring more than one main item of baggage and one daysack. You will only have to carry your daysack on this trip.

Our trip starts by the world famous, and UNESCO listed harbour of Bergen. You can literally feel the excitement within the group, as we set off for the magnificent fjords of Aurland. Most of the day will be spent on the magnificent Sognefjord. One of the world’s longest, and most spectacular fjords. The moment you start thinking that nature can’t be more spectacular, we move into the Nærøyfjord. As an enormous shaft, the narrow and utterly beautiful walls of Nærøyfjorden surround us. The spectacular landscape has earned this tiny community a place on the UNESCO world heritage list. Our hiking goal for the day is the mountain Prest(1478 meters above sea level). Some parts of the trail might feel exposed, but we guarantee that the experience on the top is worth it. From here you will have a perfect view of the enormous fjord landscape. Our accommodation for the night is Vangsgaarden, a restored farm from the 1750’s. Through hard work, the owners have maintained the authenticity of the buildings, and it has small lovely gardens surrounding it. No need for feeling at home – this is home!

Day 2: A DAY TO REMEMBER - Aurlandsdalen

Just like yesterday’s dinner, our breakfast is also served with local and healthy ingredients. The local bus stop is a short walk from the hotel, and from here the bus will take us towards our goal for today. Some places make Norwegians extra proud, and the valley of Aurlandsdalen is one of these places. Sparkling green coloured cliffs, summer pasture farms, wild nature, fun hiking and small waterfalls makes you feel like you are hiking in a postcard. The better part of the hike is slightly downhill; hence the terrain is easy, but the walk is quite long. However, with plenty of breaks, healthy food, and the beauty of the surroundings to motivate us, the only worry we will have is that the day will end eventually. We return to Vangsgaarden, where a lovely three-course dinner with a Norwegian touch awaits!

Today we head south with a railway that has been characterized as «the world’s most beautiful train journey». The Flåm Railway is an utterly popular ride and the main reason why people visit the area. We leave the train in Voss, and our goal today is to experience authentic Norwegian agriculture, culture, architecture and nature. Voss is famous for being the extreme sports capital of Norway, and from here we head towards the fruit capital of Hardanger. On our way, we will pass spectacular architecture, such as the hanging bridge of Hardanger, Norway’s longest hanging bridge, even longer than the Golden Gate bridge. Apples and cider were first introduced here by English monks in the 1300’s. Today, Norwegians know Hardanger best for its lovely blooming and delicious fruit handcraft. By now, we should all be ready for a majestic sight. The length of today’s hike is not the longest, but that does not make it less exciting. As we cross a small bridge, the 182 meters of free falling water appears to us, called Vøringsfossen, one of Norway's most popular waterfall. It is a majestic sight, watching and hearing the water thundering down from the mountainside is an experience you will never forget!

We spend the night in one of the oldest hotels in Norway, Utne Hotel, staying here is like being in a history book, with careful thought given to architectural details, amenities and décor. Our three-course menu at the hotel restaurants is a result of their chefs’ interest in ingredients from local small-scale producers in Hardanger. As an appetizer, we will join them tasting a lovely batch of locally produced cider. Welcome!

Early breakfast, our legs are rested, and we are ready to experience The Trolls Tongue! People come from all over the world to experience Trolltunga, and today it’s our turn! The trolls tongue, as it would be named in English is a spectacular mountain formation situated 1,100 meters above sea level, and 700 meters above the lake of Ringedal. This is a long hike (10-12 hours), the longest hike of the trip, so we start off early in the morning, and will have dinner quite late. Even though the hike is tough it is both doable and worth it! We will have time to relax at the top, enjoy the view, and take unforgettable photos on the plateau. This place inspired many Norwegian artists during the Romantic era and led to some of the most remarkable artworks ever coming out of Norway. It has been a long day, so a well-deserved dinner awaits us in the local village of Odda. Nice and fed we head back to Utne Hotel.

Ever seen or hiked on a glacier before? From our hotel, we make our way up to Folgefonna and go for a full day walk (4-6 hours) on the glacier. Folgefonna is Norway's third biggest glacier and is situated in Folgefonna National Park. Hiking on the glacier plateau is not particularly hard, but it is a truly magnificent experience walking roped up on the 350m thick carpet of ice! When the weather allows, it is a spectacular view of the surrounding fjord landscape from the glacier. During this day we will walk at a gentle pace, and take the time to enjoy our company, and beautiful scenery. After the glacier hike we drive 1,5 hours to Voss, were Smalahovetunet farm is ready to welcome us for our final farewell dinner together.

All cultures have its special kind of traditional food, and western Norway is no exception. The village of Voss is known for its traditional sheep cuisine. And, we would love to give you the opportunity to experience one of the more peculiar traditions of this area. At a local farm, we will have the opportunity to taste the cuisine of Smalahove. We promise you a once in a lifetime experience and a lot of good memories to get the laughter going on the train towards Bergen. Our journey ends in Bergen around 22:30. For those of you who would like to stay longer in Norway – Bergen has connections to all over Norway, with flights, train and the coastal steamer Hurtigruten.
