Additional Information

This book describes 20 walking routes in the main mountain areas of Norway, ranging from the far south to the Arctic regions. Chosen because they are of particular interest to the visiting walker, all trips described are accessible by public transport. Many of the mountain areas are close to one another, making it easy to connect different routes for a fortnight's holiday. Route descriptions divided into daily segments, vary in length from a few days to a week. Fact panels provide information on level of difficulty, base, maps etc. Introductory sections to each chapter detail unique information about each region and transport to the area. Summary tables list the hourly estimates of the walking time necessary between points on a route. Route profiles provide an approximate picture of a trail's steepness, and trail maps give an instant picture of the entire route.

"Walking in Norway" is a compact guide to long distance hiking in the mountains and high plateaus of Norway. Norway is blessed with some exceptionally beautiful national parks featuring mountains, lakes, and huge open areas above treeline. Connie Roos has provided planning information to take advantage of 20 selected routes located in the Hardanger, Jotunheimen, Rondane, Dovre, Trollheimen, and northern Norway regions. Her focus is on multi-day hikes, although hikers may choose to do only segments of the routes described. Her information includes a sketch map for each area, terrain profile, and narrative description of the distance and conditions of each major path segment. There is also a small selection of photographs that provide some sense of scale. Roos has provided some valuable information on how to reach the various hiking regions, whether by car, bus, or train, and on how the distinctive Norwegian mountain hut system works.

... facts without rhapsodies, about "hut to hut" long-distance walking in Norway. The few pictures in the book will not convince you of the beauty of the country, but the directions for preparation will serve you well. The book is small enough to carry in your shirt pocket, by intention. It's already more than a decade old, but 'such things' change slowly in Norway, the least populated country of Europe. Hiking in Norway is not, on the whole, a wilderness experience, however, not much like back-packing in the American Rockies or in Alaska. Though sparsely settled, upland Norway has been criss-crossed by farmers and herders for millennia; its trails are deeply etched in the soil. Just when you think you've left humanity behind, you'll come upon a Norse or Samii family homestead.

Before succumbing to the allure of the Northern Lights, however, you must take note of the two very terse passages in this little guide concerning weather gear and mosquitoes. It rains a lot in... Read more
I was dissapointed that this guide didn't contain more information. What it has is excellent and useful but it needs much more. Important information like temperature is missing, and it says none of the walks are for the inexperienced person. However as it appears to be the best there is on walking in Norway, it's worth buying.
