    Rago - most inaccessible national park in Norway

    by Astralka Updated Apr 4, 2011

    Equipment: There are marked trails. Well, they are marked with yellow, green and red colour! These colours are abundant in the autumn nature, so do not get lost! I had some troubles to follow the green trail in August. Partially because we (me and my friend) started the hiking from a self-service cabin before 3 a.m. due to mosquitoes attacks during the night. It was not too light, but it was not dark!

    Watching ski jumping at Holmenkollen

    by hopang Updated May 14, 2009

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Holmenkollen is located on the outskirts of the city of Oslo, approximately 20 minutes drive from the city center. We went to Oslo during a winter from Göteborg in Sweden just to watch ski jumping at its best. It was one of the World Cup's events in ski jumping calender. We have seen ski jumping on television before several times but watching live is another experience that you will never forget especially to Asians living in tropical countries.

    Ski jumping is one the dangerous sports. Many inexperience jumpers get seriously hurt when they fall down on the slope of the steep hill! Take the opportunity to watch ski jumping at Holmenkollen if you visit Oslo during late winter.

    Easter in Hemsedal

    by Flying_Kiwi Written Dec 31, 2008

    Slopes are pretty average and great for learner to intermediates. Some reds and blacks if you like a bit more of a challenge though. Decent board park too.

    Best bit though, is the Hemsedal Cafe afterwards. Absolutely magic if you're young, foolish, love rock music and don't mind getting exceedingly drunk & drenched in other's drinks. One of the best ski parties you'll ever enjoy.

    Equipment: Wear your boots!!! Your feet will get stomped on.

    Hiking on the cheap - base camp in Oslo

    by Saagar Written May 6, 2008

    With a maximum of 4 hrs travel out of Oslo to reach a hiking area, you will have access to major wilderness areas of Hardangervidda, Skrim, Blefjell, Norefjell, Gudbrandsdalen south, Gausdal Vestfjell, Valdres, Jotunheimen (south). The hiking possibilities are immense, and you can stay in a tent in the wilderness. On the cheap you can also fly, try Norwegian.no or SAS.no to get to the west or north coast cities near fjords on a cheap ticket. Oslo itself is located right on a fjord, but it is more like a pond, unexciting, you have to get south beyond the narrow straight at Drøbak to see and feel real sea. There is a bus service to Hvaler (tow. Sweden), or Tønsberg/Tjøme and Sandefjord southwest of Oslo. There is a coastal trail along much of the coast in Vestfold county centering on Stavern (southwest of Oslo). On the real cheap, buy a metro ticket and get to Sognsvann or Frognerseteren stations on the Oslo metro net and start hiking. Cheap or expensive, the experiences don't have much to do with cost.

    Both Birkebeineren Ski Stadium and Lysgardsbakkene Ski Jumping Arena can be also used during summer.

    Birkebeineren Ski Stadium is a good starting point for hiking, jogging and mountain-biking, while Lysgardsbakkene Ski Jumping Arena's K120 hill can be used for summer ski jumping.

    Norway's fjords are a paradise for fishing fans.

    The long rivers with a good salmon resources, but also other types of fish are to be found in the northern part of the country.

    The fjord lakes located on the fjord arms and valleys are offering good opportunities for inland fishing and also good stocks of trout and char.

    Equipment: For the fishing fans the licenses can be easily bought and have reasonable prices.

    Hiking trails around Stryn

    by Diana75 Updated Mar 13, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Stryn, and especially Jostedalsbreen, are considered attractive areas for walkers and hikers.

    The small town in this area are perfect starting points for nice walks to the mountain farms, tall and steep mountains or glaciers.

    Some of the valley glaciers like Briksdalsbreen, Boyabreen and Nigardsbreen are among the most frequently visited tourist attractions in Norway.

    The mountain farm of Meland is situated at 500 metres above sea level, and is an excellent walking tour in the evenings.

    For those seeking something more vigorous, Storskrefjell is recommended at 1814 metres above sea level.

    Glacier Walks (Loen)

    by Diana75 Written Mar 10, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Certainly the most interesting thing to do in the glaciers' area is do a special tour with iceclimbing.

    For enjoying a spectacular blue ice view, numerous hiking trails are covering the glaciers.

    The tours can be also guided and must be booked in advanced.

    Dog Sleding At the Villamarkssenter

    by GypsyLightChaser Updated Jun 3, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    What fun this is! Riding through the snow in a sled with the dogs barking gleefully. Snow covered mountains, the light dancing off the snow, crisp air hitting your face..it is magic!

    After your ride you return to go into a nice warm Llavo (tipi) to sit on reindeer hides by a nice hot fire and have a delicious reindeer stew, hot coffee and cake. The owner Tova is one of the few female Musher's in the sport. She is wonderful and will make sure that your ride is one of a lifetime:)

    Equipment: The Center provides all the clothing and things to keep you nice and warm. Make sure you wear a couple of pairs of warm socks.
