  • Hiking to the 4 waterfalls of the Husedalen Valley
  • Climb the historical 'Monk Steps', 616 stone steps used by monks to access the Hardangervidda

Easily accessed from Bergen and with the most gentle but still spectacular landscapes of the Norwegian Fjords, this week long walking holiday is the perfect introduction to Fjord Norway. Enjoy overnight stays in the fjord-side villages of Ulvik, Kinsarvik and Lofthus, and daily walks around the ’Orchard of Norway’. After a night in the historic city of Bergen, head into the heart of the Hardangerfjord. Wander through fruit orchards tasting delicious local cider, walk to summits with panoramic fjord views, and hike along a valley filled with cascading waterfalls. A couple of ferry journeys with time to relax and take in the views complete your experience.
