Geiranger: Nordic Walking
Nordic walking began as a summer training exercise for serious ”cross-country” skiers.

Geiranger: The Golden Circle
This tour offers a breathtaking scenic view of Norwegian mountains, fjords, and glaciers. You will leave the village of Geiranger behind as your motor coach climbs up the Flydal Valley to the high mountain plateau at Djupvatn Lake, and then continue via Grotli to Tystigen Glacier over the Old Strynefjellet Mountain Road. The Old Strynefjell Mountain Road is a narrow road that twists and turns through the Strynefjell Pass. It is a bit of Norwegian road-building history, and was the only road for vehicular traffic between Skjåk and Stryn for most of the previous century. It is not only the manual labor and the story of its construction that makes the Old Strynefjell Mountain Road a scenic road. Along its length of 17 miles, the road demonstrates the tension between the topography of east and west, the ancient, rounded forms in the east, and the sudden drop and the more recent alpine forms in the west. Tystigen Glacier is popular for summer skiing and the northernmost branch of the Jostedalsbreen Glacier.  You will continue to Videseter and the Videdalen Valley where a 3-course lunch will be served at one of the mountain hotels in the area. Through the tunnel of the main road you will again climb up to Lake Djupvatn and further climb to the top of Mount  Dalsnibba, 5,000 feet above sea level where the views over Geiranger, the fjord, and the mountains are fantastic.
