Hiking across Norway

This summer, my family and I hiked across Southern Norway from east to west. So what is it like to hike across Norway, you may ask?

I can tell you this: Hiking across Norway

is relaxing in the late evening sun next to a field the first day of the trip

hiking into hidden valleys without tracks

2014.06.25–07.15 Norge på tvers til fots Porsgrunn–Lysebotn0125

meeting local sweethearts

jumping for joy

embracing the moment (when the wind removes the midges for a few minutes)

drinking pure water

disappearing into the fog

counting midges on the tent fly

enjoying a brief moment of trout bonanza

hiking long forest roads

styling a natural hairdo

walking late into the evening

finding memorable camp sites

descending into the clouds

reaching the Lysefjord.

  2. Oh god, these landscapes are so amazing! I live in Ukraine and we haven’t such a mountains near the sea (or whatever those waser might be), so it’s good to see something very different. And photos in the fog are breathtaking, just wonderful. Good luck in your future journeys!


  3. Loved all the photos. Especially the local sweethearts. So cute. Cool that you noticed that. I’ve been a professional portrait photographer for 13 years, but am really falling in love with nature and travel photography and your blog is such eye candy! This trip looked amazing! Thanks for sharing.
