The Fjords of Norway — worthy on anyone's bucket list, will dazzle your eyes with its magnificent scenery.
My good friend Rui—one of London's top personal trainers—was the perfect travel companion for this macho trip. Via London, we flew to Bergen and drove East to the region of Odda where we hiked, mountain biked, climbed and kayaked our way to the famous Trolltunga.
Below are some of the moments captured from our amazing adventure followed by images from the second-leg of our trip in Stavanger.
After a few kickass days in the Odda region, we flew into Stavanger, south of Bergen for the second-leg of our adventure which included a short hike to the Pulpit Rock — another must-see part of Norway.
- Flew into Bergen
- Rented a car and drove East towards Odda (3-6hr drive)
- We wanted to stay in Odda (Odda Camping)
- But no vacancy, so we stayed in Røldal (check oldal-booking.no)
- Though you can hike the Trotlltunga by yourself, it's more fun when you do it through Opplev Vada
- We did the mountain bike, hike & climb via ferrata route Himmelstigen to Trolltunga/Preikestolen
- We went kayaking on the 2nd day in between the Fjords (You can also do zip lining through Opplev Vada or do the Blue Glacier hike if you have time)
- We flew from Bergen to Stavanger (though in hindsight, it would have been easier to drive to Stavanager, poor planning on my part)
- From Stavanger, we ventured off to Preikestole, via two buses and a ferry
- Stayed at Preikstole Mountain Lodge & had an amazing dinner with the best view in the house (get Table 1 and book in advance)
- Refreshed in the morning, we did the easy 2.5hr hike to the Pulpit Rock
- If you have time, do the hike on the Kjerag Mountain
