Our Mountains to Fjords Hut to Hut Trek is an incredible way to explore Norway’s best landscapes and most famous National Park, Jotunheimen. This Park boasts the highest mountains not only in Norway, but all of Northern Europe; the name Jotunheimen literally means “home of the giants.”
Utilizing Norway’s fantastic hut system, we intimately enjoy the Park and all of its spectacular trails and jaw dropping vistas. After soaking up panoramic mountain views for days, we take you on a visit to one of Norway’s other famous natural features, the Nærøyfjord. This spot is so amazing and unique it is featured on UNESCO’s World Heritage List, and we are proud to enjoy it via a sustainable, zero emissions cruise.
Also, this trip starts in the capital city of Oslo and ends in the charming town of Bergen, so we have the opportunity to see a large swath of Norway and learn about its many traditions and rich cultural history in one spectacular hiking-centered itinerary. Come explore the land of the Vikings with us on foot!

For this Norway trek you will need to fly into Oslo, Norway and out of Bergen, Norway. We recommend guests travel into Oslo a day before their trip begins and spend a night in Oslo near the city center. We recommend the Thon Hotel Opera (website) for convenience. This hotel is a 1-minute walk from the central train station, where you can get off the airport train and into the city. It is central, right next to the Opera House, National Gallery and Peace Center. You will meet the group and guide(s) on the morning of Day 1 for an orientation meeting.
On the last day of the trip, guests are together for breakfast and will have a scheduled transfer to the Bergen Airport at 9am-10am. This is included in the price of the trip. Departing flights should not be planned before 12pm to utilize our provided airport transportation this day. Any airport transportation needs outside of this will be at the guest’s expense.
Flights to Oslo Airport and from the Bergen airport are the guest’s responsibility. Multiple airlines operate flights into Norway from many U.S. and European international airports. Some of the primary U.S. departure cities include Atlanta, Denver, Boston, Washington DC, San Francisco, Seattle, New York, Dallas and Minneapolis.
