Originally published in norwegian as Norske perler, meaning "Norwegian pearls", even local norwegians were surprised and impressed by the beautiful experiences documented in this book. Norway, Naturally aims to give an insider's perspective on what can be found both on and off the beaten track, usually way up in some remote fjord, out at sea, or in alpine terrain.
The whole country is represented, and the writer, Trygve Sunde Kolderup, has admitted to having difficulties with making a fair selection. There's simply too much to choose from! Both winter and summer activities, wet and dry ones, can be found described in this book. For each destination, you get detailed travel instructions, tips for performing said trip, tips about gear and practical information.
Through Norway, Naturally, you'll encounter some of the most famous attractions, but also the hidden gems right next to and around them. Areas like Hardanger, Sogn, Jotunheimen, Sunnmøre, Romsdalen, Helgeland, Lofoten and even Svalbard are featured in the book. Here you will find tips for hiking and long walks, adventure biking, alpine climing, kayaking, skiing and ski touring, sightseeing and much more.
