This summer I have been in Norway, I didn’t have many days so I opted to cross the region from Oslo to Berghen. My aim was to live in full contact with the nature by hiking in various fjords of this magnificent country. For me the biggest obstacle to overcome was to walk several kilometers with a backpack of 20kg. In fact to get used to I spent most of August walking through my mountains in Northern Italy. In my first plan the only companion was my tent, nevertheless one evening, just a few days before leaving, I met Paul. He is a photographer, which was my classmate during high school, and like life goes we lost track for many years. After talking to him about my project he said just one sentence: I will come with you!
We planned our route in Oslo but we left the city as soon as possible to lead to our first goal: The famous Language of Trolls. A hike of 22 km to sit on a protruding rock that stands horizontally above the lake Ringedalsvatnet with a sheer drop of 700 meters; what a powerful view! Along the way to Odda, last city served by public transportation before Tyssedal, (starting point of the road to Trolltunga) we passed through Voss and the great plateau of Handangervidda. This is the habitat of the largest population of wild reindeer, unfortunately we have only seen some gruesome remains left by hunters.
