Geiranger fjord
Before lunch, we have time to get to know the city better. We walk around the old center, go to the market and cozy shops with souvenirs and various cozy things for the home, look for graffiti lost on the walls of houses, and buy food in the store for part of the trip if we decide to cook together ourselves.

After lunch, our journey begins. Our goal today is the most picturesque fjord in Norway - the Geirangerfjord. There will be a lot of beauty along the way, we look, stop, and take pictures.

We spend the night at Geiranger Ford.

p.s. In the evening you can try to fish (if you like it)
DAY 3
Geiranger Fjord and Troll Ladder
In the morning we will have a very picturesque trekking, we will go along a beautiful path to the observation deck, which will open up a breathtaking view of the entire fjord. It will be a nice start to the day. Let's look at the water, watch the ferries, take cool photos and breathe in the real northern air. Nature here charges with special energy.

After hiking, we get into the car and go to watch Trollstigen. Are you ready for a mind-blowing serpentine? Then LET'S GO!
The Troll Wall is one of the most beautiful and winding roads on the planet, and the view from the highest point will amaze you, we will feel at the edge of the world, above the clouds, above time.

In the evening we move to the place of spending the night, rest, share our impressions and prepare for the next day.
DAY 4
Musk oxen and Trondheim
Are you ready to search for animals that have seen mammoths and the Ice Age? On this day we go on a real hunt for tundra ships - musk oxen.

The only place in Norway where the musk ox lives is Dovrefjell National Park. Musk oxen have not always lived here. There is a version that during the ice age they lived in Asia, America and Europe, but later survived only in Canada and Greenland. Musk oxen were brought to the Norwegian national park Dovrefjell in 1932 from Greenland.
At the moment, musk oxen successfully live here and breed.

We will go out onto the path of the park and go in search of these giants. Whether we see them depends on our agility and luck. But the places where musk oxen live are incredibly beautiful, this is a real tundra painted with herbs and mosses, lichens and berries. Trust us, it will be a real adventure :)

p.s. Last time we were lucky to find a large herd of musk oxen with babies.

In the evening we go to our favorite northern city - Trondheim, wooden houses on stilts, colorful cozy streets, designer clothes shops and family bars make this city especially charming. We stay overnight in Trondheim.
DAY 5
The road to the islands, the Arctic Circle and Bodø
We will have the earliest breakfast and a long drive, but this does not mean that we will sit in the car all the time, we will drive through many beautiful places, stop, take pictures, enjoy.

In the middle of the way, we will stop at one important place - we will have lunch at the station where the Arctic Circle line is located, yes, many have never been so far north.

Toward evening we will arrive in Bodø, walk around the city, try to understand this sea port city, walk along the promenade and find unusual graffiti, which are quite a lot here. We will spend the night in Bodø.
DAY 6
Lofoten and Reinebringen. The first day
In the morning we will board the ferry and go to the town of Moskines, from which we will begin our acquaintance with the Lofoten Islands. On this day, an absolutely incredible and atmospheric town with the shortest name "O", the famous fishing houses - Rorbu and climbing Mount Reinebringen from where an incredible view of the entire archipelago opens up awaits us.

Hundreds of stone steps will lead us to the top, and the reward will be a breathtaking landscape. This observation deck is considered one of the most beautiful in the world. We will have time to enjoy the views and walk along the ridge.

We will spend the night on the islands
DAY 7
Lofoten. Fishing villages, mountains and sea.
We will devote the whole day to the fishing villages and cozy towns of the islands. We will move from one town to another and explore the streets, take pictures and just try to understand how people lived here before tourism appeared on the archipelago.

After lunch, we will make another exciting hike, we will go to the mountains to look at the islands from a height. We will make a magnificent mountain hike, at the end of which we will have the most beautiful sandy beach of the archipelago - Kvalvika.

In the evening we move to the place of spending the night and have dinner.
DAY 8
Senja Island and Climbing to Segla.
This day we will visit Senja island.

Senja is the second-largest Norwegian island. Amazing mountain peaks, fishing villages, coniferous forests - all these are the distinctive features of the island, which is sometimes called "Norway in miniature".

Senja is known not only for its beautiful fjords and snow-capped peaks, but also here you can see unusual pointed rocks - Dragon's Teeth, whose name in Norwegian sounds like Okshornan, which means “bull horns”.

An amazing view of the Dragon's Teeth opens from the Tungenese observation deck, which we will definitely visit. The panoramas are truly amazing: nature has created extraordinary tidal pools that reflect the bottomless Norwegian sky.

Closer to lunch we will reach the foot of Mount Segla. Here we will have an exciting hike to the crest of this amazing mountain. From the top there are stunning views of the island towns and big water.

In the evening we arrive to Tromso and walk around the city, exploring the northern capital.

DAY 9
Tromsø. Way home
Our final day in Norway.
We will walk a little more around Tromso and go to the airport.

We fly home, but do not say goodbye to the northern country, but say "see you soon."
