The Norwegian fjords are majestic and peaceful, we will cruise on the Naeroyfjord, the most beautiful and wildest arm of the Sognefjord. Our second base of this walking holiday is Stavanger, a perfect base for some of Norway’s most unique nature experiences.

What you'll be doing


Arrival in to Norway

Today we will fly to Norway, our first stop is Bergen, where we will transfer to the hotel. Surrounded by mountains and fjords, Bergen is Norway’s second largest city, yet it offers small town charm with its colourful wooden buildings, narrow cobbled streets and the UNESCO World Heritage site of Bryggen, a Hanseatic wharf, which is a glorious remnant from when Bergen was a key centre for trade between Norway and Europe.

This evening we will gather to have a welcome drink and dinner to get to know our fellow travellers.

  • Meals included: Dinner

Fløyen, Torrfjellet, Rundemanen

This morning we will have breakfast at the hotel and then walk to Fløibanen to take the cable car to the beginning of the walk. Todays walk is a popular route, we will have the perfect opportunity to take some great pictures of fantastic views and charming old wooden buildings. We will hike literally on top of Bergen and go off the beaten track through woods, past lakes, and on paths where we can hear the silence.

Above Mount Fløyen the guide will take us through untouched terrain, reaching some higher summits with amazing views of Bergen and the ocean surrounding it. The route will wind its way down from the mountain with twists and turns. On our way down we will have the perfect opportunity to relax on one of the many benches to witness the great view over the city or Bergen. As we get closer to the bottom, we will set our eyes upon the lovely Skansedammen lake.

After the walk is finished, we may wish to choose to not use the cable car on the way back from Fløyen and walk back to city, it would take about 1 hour, or we can use the Fløibanen just as we did in the morning.

  • Meal included: Breakfast.

Walk 6 km in total. Elevation approx. 250 m.


Flam Railway and Nærøyfjord cruise

Today after breakfast, we will head to Bergen Train Station to begin our journey towards Myrdal for the spectacular Flam Railway. The Flam Railway is one of Norway’s major and most spectacular tourist attractions. On the 20 km-long train ride, you can see rivers that cut through deep ravines, waterfalls, snow-capped mountains and mountain farms clinging dizzily to sheer slopes. The train makes a photo stop at the beautiful Kjosfossen waterfall.

Once in Flam, we will board a ferry and head to Gudvangen, through Nærøyfjord. It is no coincidence that Nærøyfjord is featured on UNESCO’s World Heritage List. A fjord cruise through this narrow and beautiful fjord will give you the memory of a lifetime!

When in Gudvangen, we will head to the Viking Valley, this is the setting for the town of Njardarheimr, bringing to life the real history and culture of the Viking age. Here we will learn about the Vikings, how they lived, worked and influenced the wider world.

We will end the day by transferring to Voss and taking the train back to Bergen.

  • Meals included: Breakfast.



Ulriken Mountain

Today we will head to the Ulriken cable car station. From the cable car and the plateau, there are amazing views of the city surrounded by mountains, fjords, lakes and coastal landscapes. “The Highland in the middle of the city”, Ulriken stands as a unique landmark, tourist attraction and recreational area in Bergen.

The Ulriken, the highest of Bergen’s seven mountains, is a popular trip for both locals and visitors. On this walk we will enjoy spectacular scenery and mountain terrain 643 metres above the city streets. From the summit, we will enjoy magnificent views of Bergen and the surrounding area – the sea, the islands, fjords and mountains.

  • Meals included: Breakfast

Walk 5,3 km. Elevation approx. 30 m from the top after cable car (uneven terrain up and down, walking boots are a must).


Sail from Bergen to Stavanger

After breakfast we will head to the port in Bergen and take the beautiful sea route between Bergen and Stavanger with Fjord Line which runs daily from Bergen to Stavanger through exceptional natural beauty. The ferry takes 5 h 30 m to go from Bergen to Stavanger.

The ship sails in inshore waters for the entire voyage, so we’re never far from natural landscapes or landmarks. When sailing from Bergen we will see the Askøybroen (Askøy Bridge) and Sotrabrua (Sotra Bridge), two gigantic suspension bridges that connect the mainland to the two Hordaland islands, be prepared for Karmsund bru (Karmsund Bridge) too. This bridge, connecting Karmøy and Haugesund, illustrates what is so wonderful and unique about voyages in Western Norway. It’s not possible to get a closer mix of nature and man-made structure. Karmsund Bridge’s characteristic arch makes it popular with photographers, so make sure we have the camera at the ready.

  • Meals included: Breakfast.

Randaberg coastal walk

We will enjoy breakfast in the hotel this morning and then transfer over to the Randaberg region, not far from Stavanger, for a beautiful walk which will feature beaches, coastlines and lighthouses, while looking out for birds. We will begin the walk with views looking across the beach and towards the North Sea. We will continue along the coast and make our way to the Tungenes Lighthouse, which is situated on the tip of the Stavanger Peninsula, was first lit in 1828 and was the main light marking the entrance to the Byfjorden, the main fjord leading to the important city of Stavanger. The lighthouse is no longer in use but is now used as a fine arts centre and lighthouse/maritime museum. We will continue on the coastal path around the peninsula towards a small bay before proceeding down the coast and returning to the start point. We will then transfer back to the hotel in Stavanger. 

  • Meals included: Breakfast.

Walk 6.4 km in total. Elevation approx. 41 m.

For 2025, we will hike to Dalsnuten. A 3.8km round trip and 323m of elevation.

From the top of the 604 metres high cliff that towers above the Lysefjord, we will find the most dramatic views that Fjord Norway has to offer.

The hike to Preikestolen is of moderate difficulty. In total, the 8-kilometer hike takes about 4-5 hours (round trip). The trail, which has significant shifts in terrain, includes swampland, forests, and stone stairways built by Nepalese sherpas.

This evening we will gather for a farewell dinner and share stories and photos from the week just gone.
