If you want to visit one of the most impressive countries in Europe, with the most spectacular fjords in the world and magnificent coastal landscapes, historical cities and modern architecture, you have to make your way to Norway. The country has over 25,000 km of coastline, so the sea is never far away.
Pathways through a walking paradise
Norway is a genuine walkers’ paradise both in the winter and summer, with breathtaking views and stunning flora and fauna. The walking paths are maintained by the DNT and are marked in red. On less well-trodden routes, the signs are sometimes lacking, so a map and compass are recommended.
The right to camp means that there are plenty of places for wild camping. DNT maintains almost 500 mountain huts, spread across the whole country. The huts are divided into 3 types:
- The manned hut, where staff are available for some of the year, and can provide hot meals and breakfast.
- The self-service huts, where (except for very high season) there is no staff. There is a provisions cupboard where food can be purchased.
- The unmanned hut, without any staff and/or a provisions facility.
