... so you have an unprecedented view of the fjord. As you climb higher, trees are disappearing and you reach places where even today - middle of July and 30 degrees there is still snow. A very desolate landscape with snow patches, melting snow forming rivers and falls and hardly any visitors.
This is probably Norway at its best. We really enjoyed, stopped many times to take a short walk into the snow and ...

He is from Ulvik although he has many years traveling the world involved in humanitarian works. The terrain we covered today was not as tough as yesterday partly because it was drier. After the hike we enjoyed a traditional lunch of ...
