Spectacular Adventures above the Arctic Circle

Trip Level

This trip is rated 4, Moderate. Our hikes will include coastal, beach, and mountain hikes. Trails in Norway tend to be fairly narrow and they can be both steep and exposed, so you will need to be in good shape, have solid footing for rough sections on the trails, and have a head for heights, as some trails are along narrow cliff paths. Driving and hiking times can vary, sometimes considerably, depending on weather conditions, the group, and other factors. Some of our accommodations are in charming “rorbuers,” traditional fishermen’s cottages that have been converted to small hotels. They are bright and clean, giving you a wonderful sense of Norway’s heritage and culture, yet keep in mind that they are more spare in decor than what you may have experienced elsewhere in Europe, and you'll likely have shared living rooms, and in some cases, shared bathrooms.

Weather

Temperatures should be in the mid 50s-60s, perfect for hiking. The weather can provide spectacular clear days but can also be very wet and changeable, and we want you to be well prepared for all you may encounter. Trip members need to remain flexible in consideration of inclement weather that may require changes, such as substituting different hiking routes or canceling hikes. Water activities such as our whale watching excursion and midnight kayak are also dependent on sea forecasts.
