Norway

Trails of the Norwegian Fjords

Northwest of the Norwegian capital of Oslo, sheer rock walls rise a kilometre up into the sky, farms hang onto impossibly narrow strips of land, while waterfalls tumble down its cliffs.

Explore this spectacular area on foot, allowing you to discover tranquil spots and incredible viewpoints, away from the crowds.



England

Self-guided Trails of the English Lake District

It has been called "poetry in the hills" and England's Lake District has certainly been the inspiration for many an author, poet and artist.
