Trails Of Norway is a travel site and blog about Norway started by Lars Korvald and Henrikke Haugan. Our blog focuses on adventures and exploration of the Norwegian nature, and how to make the most of your outdoor experiences in Norway. Content is created for people interested in active vacations in Norway.
Whether you’re an experienced traveler of Norway or have never been here before, our goal is to make it easier for you to plan your trip, as well as making the most of your stay in Norway. Be sure to check out our about page if you want to learn more about us.
Let’s get started:
We have divided our site into two sections. The first section consists of detailed guides to Norwegian destinations, that we have visited. The guides are a nice way to get inspiration about what to do in the different regions of Norway, and how to reach them. They are also a good reference to look at while you’re in Norway, and want practical advice.
The second section of the site is a blog that provides more general travel tips as well as information about the gear we use. Here you will find topics such as what to pack when traveling in Norway, and pro photography tips from Lars on how to capture the beautiful Norwegian nature, among others. You will also find tips about where to get gear that will make your stay more comfortable.
So, to start using the blog we have some recommendations for you, depending on how far you’ve gotten in your the planning process.
