Topic - Mountain walking near Bergen

cahotic - on 20 Feb 2013
Hi folks,

Currently working on the good lady to go to Norway for a week of trekking this summer.

Want to fly into Bergen and am wondering what the best places in the locale are. We'd only have a week so the closer to Bergen the more time we would get in the mountains. Huts not necessary as we'll be camping anyway.

So, in essence, I'm looking for a mountainous area within a couple of hours of Bergen which has some nice trekking peaks. Nice wilderness feel, probably look to climb two peaks or so in the week with the other days just wandering.

I have walked in Jotunheimen before and that was fantastic, so somewhere similar would be good.

Also - end of May is a possibility. I'd expect there still to be snow on the higher peaks but not lower down. Is that a reasonable assumption?

Cheers,

Matt
