– Back in France after four weeks in the fjords region, I wanted to thank you for creating the fjords.com website. I stumbled upon it by accident when I was already in Norway. It really helped me find the best spots to take great photos with the GREAT PHOTO SPOTS IN THE FJORDS page. Marc Dufournet – @marcdufournetphoto

Safety, Responsibility and Season

Safety and Responsibility: The nature in Norway is beautiful but also dangerous. It is important to read about your own responsibility and how to explore the Norwegian nature in a safe way. The trips (hiking, biking, kayaking and skiing) described on this website are trips that I myself have experienced, and the descriptions are accordingly. The trips that I have written about are not suitable for everyone, it is important to consider this if you plan to go on any of these trips. Important things that you must consider before you go on these trips are age, your own physical shape, experience and skills in what you are going to do, how locally you are and how well you know the area you are going to explore, knowledge of and experience with the use of maps and compass, equipment, season and weather. Always make your own evaluation. Adapt your own risk to your own skills and by choosing where, when and how you travel. It is recommended to use guide on the tours described on this website.

SEASON - Many of the activities and attractions mentioned on this website are open only in summer and are closed in winter. This also applies to many of the roads and accommodations mentioned. Season and opening time will vary. It depends on where it is and what activity, attraction, road and accommodation it is, it usually opens in the summer and closes in the autumn, depending on i.a. the amount of snow and the risk of avalanches in the area.
