A self-guided hiking tour in Norway is a unique experience you will never forget! You will have the opportunity to hike in majestic nature, connect with the unique nature and feel the silence of the magnificent landscape that the local Norwegians are very proved of. We encourage you to do it as the locals do; pack your backpack, including the traditional sandwich with brown goat cheese, and hike from cabin to cabin.
On the hike, you will follow clearly marked trekking routes with red "T's" along the trail and stay at the Norwegian trekking association's cabins located all over the country. The cabins are either staffed with friendly locals or self-service cabins. You will be provided with an introduction to the self-guided hike and your route upon arrival to make sure you will have the best experience possible. A great place to start your self-guided hike is to arrive in Bergen where our local specialists are based.
There are numerous opportunities in terms of length of the trails and difficulty. We will customize a unique trip for you which meets your preferences and hiking experience! The hikes can last from 2 hours to 8 hours per day, all depending on how far are willing to hike each day and from 2 days to a week or longer.

1) Combine a self-guided hike with a train ride from Bergen to Finse- the highest point between Bergen and Oslo and are 1222 meters above sea level. Hike in the beautiful surroundings and enjoy a well- deserved 3-course dinner in the evening. You can combine the hike further with a hike to Aurlandsdalen which will give you the opportunity to experience the wide-open Norwegian mountains as well as a breathtaking view above the fjord.
2) We recommend a cabin to cabin hike from Geilo to Finse. You can reach Geilo easily with the local train from either Bergen or Oslo within 3 hours and hike on the beautiful and stunning Norwegian highlands meeting local Norwegians following the same path.
3) Explore the mountains between the well-known Sognefjord and the queen of the fjords- Hardangerfjord and are easy to reach from Bergen either with public transportation or a rental car. The nature in this area, named Stølsheimen, consists of heavy waterfalls and several lakes and rivers. Stølheimen extends from the fjord to high mountains up to 1,300 meters!
