Norway: Snow in May (Hardangervidda)

The Hardangervidda is a mountain plateau in the central south of Norway. We stayed on a camping site in Kinsarvik (25 degree and sunny weather). For seeing the plateau we took a day trip to see the Voringsfossen and the Hardangervidda itself. As the plateau is 1100 to 1700 m high, we saw it mostly in snow. As we already figured out in the Jotunheimen National Park, May is just to…

Norway: Preikestolen Hike – Is it worth?

Sitting at the Preikestolen Before we go over board with this article, let me summarize some things. Norway is a beautiful country, with amazing fjords, views, hikes and outdoor adventures. Even the Preikestolen Hike is in that category. But due to the fact that it is really well-known, my personal answer to the question "Is it worth" would be no. This place is overrun by tourists, which are not good at…

Norway: Jotunheimen National Park: Knutshøe Hike

Jotunheimen National Park Norway for me was always Glaciers, Fjords and amazing hikes. For that reason the Jotunheimen National Park was on the top of the list, for our Norway trip. Original plan was to stay there for a couple of days hiking. On our arrival day, 4 guys showed us pictures that the top of the Besseggen Ridge hike is still covered in snow. They were not able to see…

Norway: A rainy start in the Rondane National Park

The plan after arriving in Norway was to hike for a few days in the Rondane National Park. Sadly this plan was crossed by massive rain and bloated hiking trails. We had three attempts but the trails were under water and hiking would only be possible in rubber boats.  Same was true for the camping options in the park. The ground was so soaked that we did not even try to…
