Exploring the Aurlandsdalen Valley is like stepping into a vivid painting of Norway’s natural splendor. This trek from Finse to Vassbygdi is a gateway to a world where rivers carve through deep gorges, waterfalls cascade from great heights, and mountains stand as silent sentinels over lush valleys.

Known as the “Grand Canyon of Norway,” Aurlandsdalen’s trail, historically a vital connection between eastern and western Norway, is now a path of discovery, rich in flora and fauna, cultural relics, and geological wonders.

History and nature intertwine here, with paths winding past historic farms like Nesbø and Sinjarheim, telling stories of life once led in harmony with the rugged terrain.

While the hike is challenging, encompassing steep climbs and descents, it is accessible to most hikers who appreciate Norway’s untamed wilderness. The route’s highlights, such as the imposing Vetlahelvete, a vast glacial pothole, and the serene Aurland River, encapsulate the valley’s unique blend of beauty and brutality.

Each hut along the way provides a haven of warmth and hospitality, offering delicious Norwegian cuisine and a cozy bed to rest.

For our guests, we ensure a seamless journey by managing hut bookings, offering round-the-clock support, equipping them with GPS navigation, and providing a comprehensive travel booklet detailing the rich tapestry of the Aurlandsdalen experience.

So, are you ready to tread through the ‘Grand Canyon of Norway’?
