Visit Norway at its best

A mountain walking tour with the all the benefits Norway has to offer for parents alone or with children Grade 9 – 12.

The Jotunheimen National Park

Jotun means Giant in Norwegian and is the area surrounding the highest mountain in Norway Galdhopiggen 2469m, which we will climb during our stay. We will be walking between 5 and 8 hours per day starting with ease days and ending up with a couple of harder ones. We will be staying in mountain huts of the highest standard – some have a swimming pool and sauna! The food is also great and not to forget the Norwegian breakfast, from which we make our packed lunch.
