Not being able to travel to Norway due to Covid is hard on us all — especially as natives living abroad, missing our family. And for you wanting to visit: It’s after all the best country on God’s green earth (yes, we’re patriots). We put together a list of our photographic adventure trips to Norway, so you can feel like you’re there.
Besseggen Hike — Norway’s Most Infamous Hike
Not only does the Besseggen hike go down in our book of favorites, but the weather made for some great photos that I often return to flip through.
Maybe the most famous cluster of islands in all of Norway? On this family trip to Lofoten, we went with no photo equipment except our phones, but when the nature presents itself in such a way, even a phone can get some classic shots.
Røldal — a Sweet Trip to an Intimate Valley
- Røldal Part I — There, But Not Back Again
- Røldal Part II — Hike to the Heights
- Røldal Part III — Rainy Days
My good friend Asbjørn’s cabin, at an undisclosed location outside of Røldal on the western Norwegian coast. We spent several days there, and explored everything from waterfalls to mini-glaciers.
It’s the location of the first mountainous experience that blew me completely away. It has since become our go-to location when we are starved for mountains. The Lysefjord is only a four hour drive from my parents’ place in South Norway, and even the road across the mountains to get there is a sight to see.
Low quality photos, high quality trip. This day trip to the mountain road of Brokke–Suleskard was a highlight of the summer — rain notwithstanding.
