I had the fortune to spend 10 days in August driving and hiking around Norway’s Western Fjords. Trips like this drive me nuts! There is so much beautiful landscape, and not enough time to enjoy it. Many short day trips were taken, along with two longer trips (a climb up to 1453m Geitfonnegga, and the 8-hour traverse of the Besseggen Ridge in Jotunheimen Park). The hiking opportunities in Jotunheimen alone could fill a lifetime, not to mention the Norweigan penchant for the Allemannsretten (every man’s law), that allows unrestricted access to all land in the entire country, so long as you camp away from private residences and watercourses. Norway is a stunning country with a diverse landscape ranging from fjords and lush pasture, to arctic barrens, alpine peaks and glaciers. I just wish that it was not so prohibitively expensive!
