Northern Norway

In northern Norway, 300km inside the Arctic Circle, are the Lyngen Alps, a pristine mountain range rising to 1833m – the perfect spot for hiking and easily accessible from the city of Tromso. Whether you’d like a self-drive adventure, a fjord cruise or a scenic rail journey, we can create an itinerary that leaves plenty of time to explore this spectacular country on foot.

Also accessible from Tromso, the island of Senja offers stunning fjord scenery for hikers and is ideal for independent exploration. Less well known than the neighbouring Lofoten Islands, Senja combines good roads with well-marked trails, which can be explored on our hike and drive itinerary.

Southern Norway

In southern Norway, hike to Pulpit Rock which rears 604m above Lysefjord for a head-spinning, stomach-swooping, pixel-popping vantage point over dramatic scenery. Alternatively, join a glacier hike and set foot on the very geological formation that has given rise to much of this dramatic fjord scenery.
