This book describes 20 walking routes in the main mountain areas of Norway, ranging from the Far South to the Arctic regions. Chosen because they are of particular interest to the visiting walker, all trips described are accessible by public transport. Many of the mountain areas are close to one another, making it easy to connect different routes for a fortnight's holiday.
In Norway, you will find some of the most beautiful mountain landscape in the world. Unlike many of the alpine areas of Central Europe, these mountains are relatively free from crowds, and few roads criss-cross through this remote landscape. Providing an ideal setting for the walker, cairned routes twist through splendid scenery and link up with comfortable mountain lodges. You will meet a kind and proud people who will enthusiastically share with you there love for their mountains.
Route descriptions, divided into daily segments, vary in length from a few days to over a week. Fact panels provide information on level of difficulty, base, maps etc. Introductory sections to each chapter detail unique information about each region and transport to the area. Summary tables, maps and route profiles illustrate the routes.
UPDATE NOTE: We have been advised that the code for one of the maps quoted in the book for Route 19 is incorrect. 1634 IV Rostadalen should read 1632 IV Rostadalen.
