Hostelling International Tripbook for
Eco-tourism in Norway
There are few places on Earth that can rival Norway’s undisturbed natural beauty. The blue waters of the fjords stretch on seemingly forever, accompanied by dramatic mountain peaks, snow-dusted slopes, jagged rocky outcrops and bounteous wildflowers. As if this wasn’t enough, the country is graced with the astonishing Northern Lights in between autumn and spring, the warm glow of the midnight sun in summer and a blanket of crisp, white snow in winter – perfect for outdoor enthusiasts and nature-lovers. In a country such as this, it’s impossible to stay inside your hostel. Set foot on the largest glacier on mainland Europe in Jostedalsbreen National Park. Hike through wild scenery and past cascading waterfalls in beautiful Flåm. Go on a sea safari at Bodø and try to spot white-tailed eagles and killer whales. Or climb the Kjerag mountain to find the iconic Kjeragbolten boulder which is wedged into a rocky crevice.
