Armed with my new mirrorless camera, the Panasonic Lumix GX80, and my backpack filled with supplies, I spent 3 days “off-the-grid” with 17 of my MBA mates hiking in Norway. I was worried about my first real hiking and experience and it definitely proved to be a challenge, but now I’m hooked and ready for my next adventure!
We flew into Bergen, Norway and drove about an hour out to Alexander Grieghytten to begin our hike! Our itinerary was:
Day 1: Alexander Greghytten (cabin) to Vending cabin ~5k
Day 2: Vending cabin to Gullhorgabu (cabin) ~12k
Day 3: Gullhorgabu to Bergsdalen to Lid ~12k

A few of us arrived the day before to take advantage of the opportunity to check out Bergen and have a good nights rest before the hike. The hike was about 30km and a good challenge for newbies like myself to challenge my fitness ability and still enjoy the breathtaking beauty I was surrounded by. I was a bit worried about the hike, so definitely was a little bit over-prepared and have written a post on packing tips for hiking newbies.
