1. Hiking through Norway's Grand Canyon
Did you know that Norway got its very own Grand Canyon? At least that’s what the Aurlandsdalen Valley is called. If you are just doing one hike on your travel to Norway, this should be it. Why, you might ask. Because it takes you through the epitome of Western Norwegian landscapes.
Picture yourself walking past centuries old settlements; standing inside a massive giant’s kettle from the last ice-age; crossing a river as sparkling blue as the Caribbean Sea; passing by waterfalls plunging into open air above you; and views to endless mountains. The hike between Østerbø and Vassbygdi brings a unique mix of a wonderful nature experience and cultural heritage. The trail actually once was one of the main routes between east and west!
