Day 5
Bus to Nigardsbreen glacier (part of Jostedalsbreen icecap); walk and boat trip on glacial lake; optional glacier walk.
One of the most striking geographical features of this area of Norway is the massive Jostedalsbreen icecap in the Jostedal National Park. From its heights glacier tongues come tumbling down into deep valleys. We visit Nigardsbreen glacier for a stunning walk and a boat trip on a glacial lake. There is also the chance for an optional guided walk on the glacier (payable locally - 430NOK, approx. �45, US$75)

Day 6
Daywalk in spectacular Jotunheim National Park.
To the northwest are Norway's highest peaks in the Jotunheim National Park. We enjoy a full day here; our route choice will depend on weather conditions, but will take in some of the finest mountain scenery in the country. Depending on conditions there may even be the chance to ascend Gald�piggen, the highest peak in Norway which is snow-covered but relatively non-technical.

Day 7
Hike into Mørkrisdalen Valley.
We finish the week with a hike into one of Norway's most scenic valleys, Mørkrisdalen, the walk starts in a narrow canyon dominated by a stunning waterfall. As we walk the canyon opens into a wide valley of open moorland dotted with traditional Norwegian summer retreats.
