The Road Less Traveled: Norway, Footsteps of Giants



The Road Less Traveled's trip to Norway is the perfect place to bike, trek and raft under sunlit Scandinavian skies. On this 25-day teen summer adventure program, we don't just visit Norway, we cross it.

Sea kayaking through the land of epic sagas and true Viking spirit, we paddle six days on the deep blue UNESCO-protected Geirangerfjord. Giving our arms a rest, we travel inland to Jotunheimen (Home of the Giants) National Park. Jotunheimen gets its name from Norse mythology, which holds that giantsthe original inhabitants of the earthonce ruled this mountain range. Join us as we backpack through high, open lake-strewn playground amongst the highest peaks in Northern Europe.
