Norway: All the pieces come together.



Our new Norway hiking tour finished on Tuesday and the trip was a complete success! Our guests loved it, our trip leaders loved it, and there is no doubt that our tour will be “wait list-only” next year. This trip rocks!
  
Don’t just take our word for it though; see what one of our guests had to say about the tour. And while you’re at it, stop by our facebook page for a look at our Norway 2013 photo album. We’ll continue to add photos as they come in. Enjoy!

Today was magnificent! All the pieces came together of the mountains in Lofoten. We experienced the essence of mountains by the shore. It was the mist of the fog; the sheep; the green, green grass; the smell of the ocean; the sound of silence with the oceans waves; the smell of the wet rock and the red kelp from the water; the Norwegian, Tommy, offering us waffles and coffee in his surfing B&B in the village that was the twin to Ophir, CO; the British hikers laughing while they discussed literature; our group laughing at most anything; Staffan assuring us that we would be ok on the wet rock covered in slippery sheep sh!#; Lina’s effervescent spirit; the remnants of the German listening posts; the Filipino women serving coffee at the German historic structure and the drive into Henningsvaer—Magnificence that will definitely add to our spirits until we can be in mountains again. Thanks to you and Staffan.

P.S. The queen disembarked through her yacht through our hotel in our presence. Excitement for sure!
