After check-in we will have guided walk at the city. In the evening you will have free time to discover Oslo on your own. Those who would like to go out for a drink together meet in front of the hostel (bring ID!).

After breakfast clean the rooms and check out from the hostel. Departure by bus to Flam where you can board a boat for a 2 hour cruise on the Sognefjord to Gudvangen. A narrow part of the fjord is called Nærøyfjord and is protected by UNESCO. You can also stay in Flam and hang out there for few hours. In the late afternoon you will arrive to Luster Fjordhytter camping site.
In the evening we meet outside and have a barbeque together, feel free to bring your own food.
 
 
Day 3, Luster
Hike on Nigardsbreen Glacier guided by local professional outdoor-guides. Bus transfer 30 min. Duration of the hike is about 4 hours of which 2 hours we walk on the ice with safety equipment (crampons, ice-axe, rope). Good if you have your own hiking boots. This walk is not tiring but takes you through more difficult blue ice formations. During the hike you will experience the most spectacular sceneries at the lower part of the Nigard Glacier. Be equipped for variations in weather and temperature from sunshine to rain. The glacier is cold even in sunshine, so bring raincoat or outdoor jacket and trousers, gloves and hat. A day backpack with some lunch, water bottle, warm jumper and dry socks are useful. It is also possible to stay at the camping ground.
 
 
Day 4, Luster – Linköping
Free day to do activities in Luster area. Around 14:00 we will depart back for Linköping. On the way we will visit famous Borgund Stave Church (http://www.stavechurch.com/en/borgund/). We will view and take photos of the church from outside.
