Climb From Sea To Cloud

With longer summer days on their way, head to Norway for outdoor adventures amid the unique landscapes of the fjords

IT’S NO WONDER the Norwegians embrace outdoor living quite as wholeheartedly as they do with the wild grandeur of the fjords at their disposal. This is a region that provides newly astonishing views around every corner, whether accessed by boat, bike or on two feet. Colossal landscapes of craggy mountains and ribbon-like waterfalls command attention, but there is quiet beauty in the detail too, in the frayed ropes and sea-brined lanterns of a fishing village, or a crab clambering over rocks in the shallows of a glacial lake. One unusual way to experience the area is aboard the coastal mail boat, which chugs through the fjords, calling at barely-inhabited islets to deliver post from the mainland. Inland, the mountains grow taller and more untamed, their peaks muffled by low mists, and the fjords take on a deeper shade of blue. This is wild Norway at its most spellbinding: a place where lonely roads wend down mountainsides in acute switchbacks, and glaciers glow ice-white between peaks. There are few better vantage points than atop Mount Hoven (pictured) – reached from the edge of the fjord by via ferrata or a vertiginous cable car – where miles of walking trails offer views across the valleys and down to toy-town, clapboard villages far below.
