Aurlandsdalen Valley is wild and beautiful. This place has it's own unique experience. The hike from Østerbø Fjellstove to Vassbygdi is quite famous. The untouched, wild and beautiful nature of Western Norway, along with the age-old history and culture of all the small settlements, builds respect and fascination for what is and what once was there. The Aurlandsdalen Valley is called Norway’s Grand Canyon for a reason. The Aurlandsdalen Valley and Nærøyfjorden, located at the end of the Sognefjord, are two classic hiking areaswith plenty of other outdoor adventureswithin easy reach. The well-known and historic Aurlandsdalen Valley, was once one of the main routes between the eastern and western parts of Norway. This area is wild and breathtaking, rich in plant and animal life, cultural treasures, history and geological features. We can hike through the valley and stay overnight in the mountain lodges along the way, or come by bus or private car for shorter trips.
Great walk downhill from Østerbø to Vassbygdi. You can shorten the walk by 1-2 hours by taking the bus to Berdalen and walk down to Vassbygdi. We had some rain during the walk but that’s to be expected walking in the mountains in Norway ;-) Happy we did the shorter version, it’s a demanding walk. Strongly recommended though!
