Land of Puffins, Norway

Land of Puffins, Norway

€550 per person

Summary

As the experience of past trips shows, May is a pretty good time for this trip. First, this time of the year Norway usually there is very little rainfall. The air has already warmed up, the valleys have flowered, and in the mountains above 700-1000 meters above sea level, there is still snow. Secondly, there are still no crowds of tourists and you can enjoy this beautiful nature around us almost alone.

We will see the famous fjords, we will drive around them and cross them with local ferries.

The island of Runde is a paradise for ornithologists, a lot of different birds nest here, but our main goal is a photo hunting for Atlantic puffins.

We will see many waterfalls in Norway, including Vitifossen, which is the highest in Norway, 275 meters high. At this time in the season, the snow melts intensively and the waterfalls will be deep.

We will visit the country of glaciers, Jostedal National Park, where the Tuftebrin, Nigardsbrin and Fobergstolsbrin glaciers are located. You can come close to them and feel the coldness of their breath.

We will visit the Atlantic Ocean, driving along it along the Atlantic Road over the “drunk” bridge.

We will visit the Troll Church cave, inside of which there is a waterfall. We will also stop by the Troll Ladder viewpoint and visit the Amotan valley.

On the way home, we’ll stop in Oslo, the capital of Norway. You will have free time and can walk around the city center or visit several museums dedicated to the Vikings. Kon-Tiki Museum dedicated to the life and activities of Thor Heyerdahl and his sailing boats. The Fram Museum dedicated to the history of the Norwegian polar expeditions, where you can not just watch but also climb aboard the legendary ship Fram, on which the famous Norwegian polar explorer Nansen went on expeditions.
