Day 1- Oslo into the Mountains
This morning we will meet our guide outside of the Oslo Opera House at 10:00 am.
We will start a four hours drive as we head into the mountains. As we continue further away from Oslo and into the mountains, the towns will begin to become smaller, and we will get a glimpse of beautiful rural Norway.On the way we will stop by Heddal Stave Church, and take some time to view the charming old building, as this is one of Norway's largest stave churches. A favorite amongst Norwegians, our lunch stop for the day is a mountain cabin located around 1000 meters above sea level called Haukeliseter. We will do a short hike to make sure all the equipment is ready for the next day, then we will drive towards Odda and Trolltunga Hotel, enjoying a traditional three-course dinner as we go through the itinerary for the next days with the guide.

Today is our chance to visit the world famous Trolltunga! Translating to "trolls tongue", Trolltunga is a spectacular mountain formation situated 1,100 meters above sea level, and 700 meters above the lake of Ringedal.
Today will be our longest hike of the trip, lasting about 10 to 12 hours, depending on the speed of the group. It is a difficult hike, but even the moderate hikers will enjoy the walk! We will have time to relax at the top, enjoy the view, and take memorable photos on the plateau. This place inspired many Norwegian artists during the Romantic era and led to some of the most remarkable works of art coming out of Norway. In a case of bad weather, we have the opportunity to swap day 2 and 3 and get the best weather possible on Trolltunga.(B,L,D)
Day 3- Eternal Ice & Glacier Walk at Folgefonna
This morning we will head from Rosendal to Folgefonna, Norway's third biggest Glacier, and enjoy a day hike of about 4 to 6 hours on the glacier itself!
We will begin our hike on the glacier plateau within the Folgefonna National Park, enjoying spectacular views, walking roped in on a 350m thick blanket 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 each-others company, and world renowned beautiful scenery. We spend the evening and night at our small hotel in Rosendal.(B,L,D)
Day 4- Preikestolen Experience
This morning we prepare to visit one of the most famous mountains in the world, Preikestolen.
In order to avoid crowds that this world famous mountain attracts, we will hike in the late afternoon, enjoying the sunset and fewer crowds. At four hours round trip, this is an accessible and easy hike, drawing crowds the world over and attracting top rankings for this natural wonder and it's unmatched beauty!
Tonight, we will rest in the spectacular Preikestolen Mountain Lodge. The new lodge opened in 2008, and have won several prizes for its unique architecture.(B,L,D)
Day 5- Stairway to Heaven
After breakfast, we bid farewell to our beautiful lodge and board the ferry into the mystical fjord landscape in Lysefjorden.
While aboard the ferry, we will be able to see Preikestolen from a completely different perspective than the night before. Within two hours we arrive in Flørli. The village is a roadless hamlet by the fjord, surrounded by mountains rising over 1,000 meters into the sky. From Flørli we hike up the longest wooden stairway in the world – 4444 steps up from the fjord to the mountain.
Tonight we will stay in Flørli, experiencing a simple, yet cozy guesthouse by the fjord. Take in the simple, old world and charming surroundings of this small remote town this evening. We willl enjoy a farewell dinner, while the hosts prepare a bonfire or a wood-fired hot-tub on the old ferry quay!(B,L,D)
Day 6- Lysebotn & Mount Kjerag
Today we have the chance to visit yet another well known destination, respected and visited by trekkers the world over.
We will begin our day by taking a morning ferry to Lysebotn – the innermost part of Lysefjorden. From here we head for Mount Kjerag. Situated 1,000 meters above the Lysefjord, Mount Kjerag is truly a sight to behold. Round trip, this excursion is about 6 hours. And, depending on the time of year, you may spot some daring base jumpers that often travel from all over the world for a once in a lifetime rush!
After the trek, we return to Oslo in our minibus (6-7 hours). During the drive back, we will have the opportunity to reflect and talk about our fantastic trip, re-living this incredible experience.
