About the trip

Join us as we venture through one of the most epic parts of Norway. Towering peaks, vast Fjords and enchanted forests will play host to this magical adventure. The days will consist of long beautiful hikes between picturesque mountain cabins, gathering around the campfire in the evenings to share food and hear the Norse legends that add that extra bit of magic to proceedings. Just to get the juices flowing we will be hiking through the Jotunheim national park which in Norse Mythology is the realm of the giants and Frost Giants and was considered beyond the realm of order, a primordial place of chaos, magic, and untamed wilderness. Siiiiick...
