A guided walking holiday is perfect for people who want to walk in Norway with a small group of like-minded people. All our guided walking holidays in Norway are led by our locally based, expert guides.
Guided walking trips in Norway with Headwater are welcoming towards everyone. Many couples and solo travellers come along to enjoy the walking and to meet new people, and sometimes they end up with lifelong friends.
Walk transfers and group transfers are included in your package. They're also easy to customise according to your preferences. There is the possibility of a city break add-on, so you can spend time in Oslo, and the option to get a room upgrade, should you desire it.
On your journeys across the rugged Norwegian landscape with your group and local guide, you can expect to hike wild mountain plateaus, passing canyons, waterfalls, and lakes. If you're lucky, you may also see moose and reindeer going about their business on the mountainsides.
If you enjoy a challenge, Norway's many dramatic peaks won't disappoint, and what better way to take them on than with a friendly group of walkers who share your enthusiasm?
The dramatic landscape of Norway's fjords, mountains, and waterfalls will challenge your walking ability and fire up your imagination. Here are just a few snapshots of the destinations which you might see on one of our guided walking tours:
Norway's oldest national park is an expanse of mountains, wilderness, and farmland. It is home to one of the oldest herds of reindeer in the country, which have free rein over the breathtaking landscape. While there, you will be able to climb Store Ramshogda, which sits 1,463m above sea level, and is the ideal spot from which to admire the views of the surrounding mountains, many of which are over 2000m high.
Climb 1,144m to the top of Dynjefjellet and see the reindeer descended from the original Ice Age herds as you climb. Drink in panoramic views of the Venabygd plateau and the distant mountaintops of Rondane.
One of the most popular pilgrim paths in Norway is St Olav's Pilgrim's Road, a series of nine routes which all lead to Saint Olav's shrine in Trondheim. Along the route, you can see quintessentially Scandinavian painted farmhouses, a 4-6AD hill fort, and one of the few medieval stave church buildings that remains intact in Norway. You'll learn the story of Saint Olav, the Norwegian ruler who brought Christianity back from Viking raids in England and became the country's patron saint.
