    7 days - Join us for a Norway in a Nutshell® experience with a difference.

    The journey through the Aurland valley is one of the most dramatic and pretty short hikes in Norway. This 3-day trek starts at Finse, takes you over Klemsbu to Geiterygghytta on day 1, and continues over Steinbergdalen to Østerbø on day 2.

    On the last day the magnificent route from Østerbø to Vassbygdi will take you trough the Aurland valley. We combine the trek with a train trip from Oslo to Finse at the start, a stay in Flåm and an express boat to Bergen. We have also thrown in a RIB boat safari up the narrow Nærøyfjord.

    Think wildflowers, nature, charming lodges, fantastic scenery and company!
