My fiance and I are planning our honeymoon in Norway’s Western Fjords region. We’re hoping to take advantage of the extensive network of huts and trails to do a three-night (or so) trek/backpack in the area. We’re going without renting a car, so we’re looking for a route that is a. accessible from a town that is accessible via ferry/train/bus, b. likely to be snow-free in late August/early September c. not too steep or challenging, as one of us has chronic knee pain and isn’t super pleased with steep descents (though we’re young and otherwise fit) and d. is appropriate for intermediate backpackers. We live in Washington State and do lots of backpacking and camping in the Cascades, so we have all the appropriate gear and know how to prepare for unpredictable weather and alpine conditions. Still, we’re not mountaineers and don’t have glacier travel experience.
We’re flying into Bergen and flying out of Alesund.
Naturally, we recognize we may only be in Norway once, ever, so we’re looking for maximum awesomeness in terms of scenery
Look forward to hearing from some experts out there!
Thanks a lot!
