In The Middle Of Snowhere: Grand Tour (7-days)Are you an experienced hiker, up for a challenge and used to some travelling in snow and mountain terrain? Welcome to our 7-day snowshoeing and dog sledding winter adventure!
This trip gives you the winter highlights of Jotunheimen. You will get your snowshoes on and properly explore the Bygdin area before you embark on a 30 km adventure behind a Alaskan Husky sledge along the frozen Bygdin lake. Our experienced mushers will adapt the speed and pace according to your level of comfort. If you are up for the challenge, you can become a part of the crew and not “just another guest”! And yes, this means that YOU will get to be the one leading your own group of Huskies!
The snow-coach will take you to Filefjell where you will spend two days conquering the winter slopes of the Kings’s road. This historical road was the first to connect the east and west of Norway, and recently reopened as a hiking route. In 2017 it was awarded the Europa Nostra prize for cultural heritage. You will get the bus further into the country and to the fjords by Øvre Årdal. Here you will explore Paradise Juvet and the fjords during the day. In the evening enjoy beer tasting at the local brewery in Øvre Årdal in the evening.
The last day is more relaxing as you will get the boat cruise on the UNESCO listed world famous fjords of Norway. Once you disembark in the small village of Flåm you will get on the train, Flåmsbanen, and enjoy a spectacular train journey from Flåm, back to Oslo city centre.
This trip is moderate to challenging and designed to meet the expectations of experienced hikers, in average to good physical condition. Alternatively, we can adapt the hikes to make it suitable for less experienced hikers.
