I wrote Walking in Norway (Cicerone Press, England) over five summers totally about 9 months of walking time in this lovely country. All of the walks were personally logged by myself; some I have been over several times. The maps are excellent and route profiles detail the trails up and down's; fact panels provide a synopsis of the walks. Northern Norway was a surprise to me - light all night, superb scenery and remote untouched landscape. Norwegian huts are accessible to all (just join the Mountain Touring Association for a small fee and hut fees are discounted) and are clean with blankets, pots and pans, and food. Visit the mountains of Norway, a true adventure for us all! Constance Roos

However, even if trekking isn't your game and you want to bag summits, this is still a worthwhile book. It gives a good introduction to many different areas of Norway, and covers a wider range than Bernhard Pollmann's book. What it won't give you of course is a step-by-step description of how to get up the summits - you'll need to do some work yourself...
For those who want to ascend peaks, there is no one definitive guidebook (yet) published in English to the Norwegian mountains. On my last trip to Norway, I took this book, Pollmann's "Norway South", Slingsby's "Norway: the Northern Playground" and Tony Howard's "Romsdal" book. Between the four of them I was able to put together a cracking itinerary for some grand mountain days out.
Whilst it may seem a little over-the-top buying 4 books, compared to the price of a pint of beer in Norway it's a bargain!

I hardly used it when I was there and I left it in a public libraryPublished 16 months ago by Jayaitch
The book is well written and an enjoyable read. I visited the Hardangervidda in late August and hiked for 2 weeks and the description of the area is accurate.Published on 17 Jan. 2014 by p p wall
