Hiking in Norway has become synonymous with breathtaking views and spectacular scenery. There is a wide variety of hikes available, from treks that take you high above the fjords to challenging mountains deep inside national parks. The trails are typically well-marked with signs, cairns, and painted rocks and trees.

Trolltunga and Preikestolen, in Western Norway, are two of the most famous hikes in Norway, and for many these hikes will form an important part of their journey. But keep in mind that there are countless others, often much less busy, offering excellent hiking and unrivaled vistas.

In Jotunheimen National Park, the day hike over Besseggen Ridge has become a rite of passage for many locals. The route provides a great opportunity to stay in the nearby tourist cabins and as a starting point for hikes deeper into the park. Not far away sits Galdhøpiggen, Northern Europe’s tallest mountain.

For fjord views, the impressive Skåla has its trailhead in Loen. In Geirangerfjord, a boat sails to the start of the steep trail to Skageflå Mountain Farm.

Popular amongst Norwegians are the trek down through the lush Aurlandsdalen valley towards Flåm, and the demanding Romsdalseggen Ridge by Åndalsnes. Both are very accessible from towns which are important stops on many itineraries.

Above the Arctic Circle, Segla on the island of Senja is quickly becoming the latest Instagram sensation. In the Lofoten archipelago a hike up Helvetestind (Hell’s peak) should always be combined with a visit to the lovely Bunes Beach.

Gaustatoppen is Southern Norway’s tallest peak and the beautiful mountain offers arguably the best view in all of Norway. Rondane National Park is Norway’s oldest, and it’s highest mountain Rondslottet is just one of many worth climbing in the area.

Norway is truly a hiker’s paradise and an amazing hike is never far away.
