Magic of the Fjells

* Norway *

A trip with your dog through Norway,
Magic of the Fjells

A trip with your dog through Norway, in the typical Norwegian fjells (the mountains), over rugged peaks or gently sloping mountains. Strolling through vast valleys with blue lakes, or a view of the highest peak of Telemark. This very beautiful and varied hiking week gives you breathtaking views, calms your mind and allows you to fully experience the wilderness.
A real adventure with your dog!

Drie dagen hiken over verschillende delen van de hoogvlakten van de Hardangervidda geeft je een goed beeld over de uitgestrekheid van dit 8000 km2 large National Park. In addition, we hike through Hallingskarvet National Park to a rugged mountain peak. We camp in the wild, always in a different place. A varied journey where contact with nature is the key.

The tours are mainly hiked with a daypack, which makes this trip accessible to many. See also the detailed itinerary. This is a fantastic trip with surprising hikes every day. Of course there is plenty of free time to relax and enjoy the surroundings. You will receive an extensive packlist after registration.

*** Magic of the Fjells *** en magisch was het!

In je slaapzak overkijkend op een prachtig meer met de Noordster erboven. Een droom.

Zwemmen in een meer waar de laatste smeltende sneeuw in uitkomt. Beleving.

Huppelende en blije hond over de sneeuw. Geluk.

Het uitzicht op de top van een berg na een hoop geklauter over rotsen. Overwinning.

De geur van de bomen, het mos en de frisheid van puur natuur. Inspiratie.

De stilte van Noorwegen. Connectie.

De natte neus van je hond in je nek terwijl je slaapt. Liefde.

Anouk heeft mij geleerd hoe flexibel en ontspannen wildkamperen in Noorwegen is. Er werd rekening gehouden met alle honden en mensen in de groep. De variatie van de reis was fantastisch en super inspirerend. Ik ben nu, na deze trip, echt klaar voor mijn 6 dagen solo hike met mijn lieve hond Zen. Maar eerst nog een keer met Anouk mee naar Schotland, want met de groep is toch ook zo gezellig.”

Together with my dog, Anouk and the rest of the group I made the Magic of the Fjells trip in Norway. For me it was a very nice experience. Norway has a varied landscape with mountains, lakes, waterfalls, forests, moors… and we have been everywhere! Anouk knows all the beautiful (secret) corners of Norway, corners that I would not have found myself.

What I really liked is that the dogs were well taken into account. They were allowed to get used to each other at their own pace. Anouk also checks how they are doing physically. If necessary, the program is adjusted, which I think is a nice idea, the well-being of the dogs comes first.

I hope to be able to join True Nature Trails again in the future. And Anouk will hopefully bring the beautiful weather with it again :).

An unforgettable experience! Back to basic with your dog. Becoming one with nature, completely surrendering to the now. The rest is equally unimportant. Special to experience that. I really enjoyed traveling with a small group. Had interesting, valuable conversations with Anouk and my fellow travelers. Something to think about. The guidance is excellent, Anouk also stands her ground in unforeseen situations, keeps her calm and acts. Hats off. This trip made an incredible impression. Thank you.

An unforgettable journey with True Nature Trails. A journey that has connected me with my true nature, my true self. But also a journey that I can hardly put into words, so impressive, so intense. Hiking in Norway is truly wonderful.

Anouk is someone I could be completely myself with. The guidance was exceptionally good. The trip was taken care of down to the last detail. I got to know her as a good tour guide, her love and care for this earth and her dog Taka. She is a decisive, inspiring woman who stands firmly in her shoes.

The long walks threw me back on myself. This allowed me to pay attention to everything that lived in me. I feel it has brought me further in my consciousness.

The trip has inspired me immensely. I will be doing this more often! I really enjoyed being one with nature, the endless silence, drinking from lakes and rivers, waking up in a wide valley, seeing the mist lift in the morning, all the elements, the snow peaks, all back to basics . Even without a dog, this is an amazing trip! Thanks again Anouk for this unforgettable journey that I often think back on with a big smile!

Camping in the wild was just awesome!! The hiking was easier than I expected, very doable, if you trained well. Fun and educational assignments in between that I did not expect. The guidance of Anouk is very inspiring. I also liked the variety between the high mountainplateaus and the Norwegian forests. I will definitely go wild camping again with my dogs more often!

I found the environment and nature really beautiful! I even would have liked to hike longer, it was doable. Camping in the wild was also great. Sometimes I was touched by the assignments but it certainly also brought depth. I loved what other participants shared in the group.
The guidance was great! Relaxed, educational, profound and well-considered.
I take a lot of inner peace home with me and will make more time to enjoy nature at home. It was a wonderful trip with nice company, nice dogs, pure enjoyment.

What I especially liked is that everyone was given the time and space to be themselves. I found the guidance nice, clear and relaxed. I loved the wild camping, the places were really beautiful! I learned a lot from the trip and will definitely do it again.
