Sogndal in the Summer
Sogneford - Norway’s longest and deepest fjord cuts through mountainous landscapes making its way inland for over 200km (170 miles). The fjordside village of Sogndal provides our base for exploring this vast area of mountains, waterfalls and glaciers. Our basecamp will be at Sogndal Folk High School where onsite facilities include restaurant, communal area, gymnasium, and outdoor hot tub.
Arrival at Bergen Airport. Transfer either by express boat from Bergen along the Sognefjord, or by private bus. Welcome and dinner. Overnight in twin share rooms.
Breakfast and preparation of packed lunches. Full briefing for the coming week and equipment check for basic mountain craft. Participants will learn about what to wear and how to pack. The mountain hike begins from a nearby trailhead and the group will follow a circular route returning to the school in the afternoon.
The group have an option to do a short canoe trip on the fjord or rock climbing with abseiling. This will be followed by dinner and some instruction on how to use a cooking stove and general information in preparation for the following day.
