As Lonely Planet describes the train journey: “Anywhere else, the Bergensbanen, or Bergen Line would be heralded as a wonder of the world. Here, it’s a matter-of-fact way of linking the country’s two most important cities.”

Day 3 – Hike Manen to Englafjell in Uskedalen

Itinerary:

  • Another challenging day as we hike up the Mannen which translates as “The Man”. This trail leads through pine forests to tundra, with a truly memorable chance to take a dip in a glacier lake. We summit “The Man” and are rewarded with views of Fjords, Mountains, and the Pacific Ocean.
  • Accommodation: Cabins (3 person and 2 person)

Day 4– Goodbye to the Fjords, Rivers, and Glacier Lakes
