About the trip

Have your ice-pick handy for our legendary escape to the mountains and fjords of Norway.

Our high-octane adventure gets right to the heart of “friluftsliv” – outdoor living – in a vast panorama of epic beauty. Summon your courage as we crampon our way across the largest glacier in mainland Europe, crawling through ice caves and roping up cliffs. Feel the fresh fjord air on your cheeks as we sea-kayak the gleaming waters of Lustrafjorden, with mountains looming all around.

Our five-day escape here sees us hike to a goat’s cheese farm, feast on a glacier picnic and zip around lakes by private RIB boat; all while drinking in the most incredible horizons known to mankind. This is about heart-pumping adventure in forest-lined valleys and wide blue skies, without a tourist in sight.

Flashpackers, are you ready to stretch yourself in the surrounds of Norway’s natural splendour? Come fuel up on the power of the wild.

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 at 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 hip and lovely hub. Revel in its beautifully preserved history, mooch around the art galleries or tuck into freshly-caught seafood along the Fisketorget harbour. You can also check out the UNESCO waterfront of Brygge or climb Fløyen mountain for views above the city and coastal islands. There’s a thriving bar culture here, perfect for grabbing drinks (check out the booming craft beer scene) as you get to know your fellow Flashpackers. Here’s to new adventures!

Day 2

RIB boats and a mountain feast

Rev up for the most scenic drive of your life today in a fjord-filled wilderness along Route 16. We’ll stop at Tvindefossen waterfall and the stunning Nærøydalen valley, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, before arriving in Gudvangen village. Swapping four wheels for an RIB boat, we’ll zip across the open waters to Skjerdal Wharf, then hike 90 minutes through sweeping alpine views to Leim mountain goat farm. We’ll learn about how cheese is made and tuck into a lunch of local produce, in this quintessentially Norwegian experience. In the afternoon, more spectacular scenes await as we trek back and drive onwards to Marifjøra, a quaint Norwegian village nestled within the Lustrafjorden. Enroute, we’ll pass the Stegastein viewpoint above the Aurlandsfjorden and stop at Borgund Stave Church, with 12th Century dragon heads and rusting carvings. Washing up in Marifjøra, it’s time for a traditional three-course dinner, 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

Ice-hike the Jostedalsbreen glacier

After a hearty breakfast, we’ll boat across a glacial lake into Jostedalsbreen National Park, heading to the edge of Jostedalsbreen glacier. Today, we’ll be tackling this mighty giant, the largest of its kind in mainland Europe, armed with crampons, ropes and axes. Your experienced guides will brief you fully before we set off across the glacier, on a dazzling two-and-a-half hour adventure, dodging ice towers, crawling through caves and navigating deep blue cravasses. It can get steep at times, so you’ll need to be fairly sure-footed but natural steps in the ice will help to pave the way. We’ll stop for a picnic en route before spending the rest of the day hiking through the national park, amid forest, mountains and fresh fjord air. If it’s early in the season with high snowfall, we’ll do the Molden hike instead. 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.

Day 4

Sea-kayak the fabulous fjords

Today we’ll plunge into the beauty of Norway’s fjords with a four-hour sea kayak across the Lustrafjorden. This 42-kilometre fjord is a joy to paddle around, with bright turquoise water coming fresh from the glacial meltwater upstream. Glide along the calm surface amid a circle of jagged mountains, keeping an eye out for seals and porpoises. Afterwards, we’ll travel Route 55 along the Sognefjord, before catching a fjord ferry from Hella to Vangsness. We’ll then carry onwards to Voss, stopping to admire endless waterfalls and cruising past mountains with hardly a tourist in sight. We’ll drive right up into the Norwegian peaks for a glimpse of life off the beaten track, before descending back down to the lakeside town of Voss. Known as the unofficial adventure capital of Norway, and with a long tradition of beer brewing, this seems a fitting place to toast the end of your adventure with some local beers.

Day 5

Back to Bergen

It’s been a riveting escape to the wilderness but today our Norwegian adventure draws to a close. Drink in your last window onto the majestic fjords as we drive 90 minutes back to Bergen, dropping you off at the airport before noon. Wherever you head to next, be sure to take hardy Norwegian spirit of adventure with you. Together, you Flashpackers have navigated a glacier, sea-kayaked the fjords and zipped between the mountain lakes by RIB boat. You’ve feasted on traditional Norwegian fare and knocked back every last inch of scenery this incredible country has to offer. It’s been a brilliant, off-radar jump into the unknown and, if you can’t quite face returning yet, why not extend your stay in Bergen? From “art street” to smokin’ seafood, there’s plenty going on here to fuel your wandering soul.
