Planning a sota-holiday in Southern Norway


#1

Hi at All,
I’m thinking of planning a holiday and a sota-tour in low Scandinavia.
Could any one suggest me some nice places for my sota-holiday?
I’m looking for a place rich of well marked trekkings and obviously with some referenced summits?
Some years ago I had been in Preikestolen, I think it is an interesting area.
I also considering the telemark area near Notodden.
Thanks in advance for any suggestion

Hi,
Both those areas are nice, with many summits. If you are going for nice scenery I would absolutely recommend Rogaland (where Preikestolen is), which also has a lot more un-activated summits available. Telemark is also beautiful though, but with a very different scenery, and it can get very warm there in summer.

For track information you can check this post: Mapping resources for tourists where you can read about the services I use when hiking, and feel free to contact me if you have any specific trips in mind. It would be very nice to do a joint activation if you come here to Rogaland, I live about an hour from Preikestolen :wink:

Hi Kjetil,
Thanks for the reply.
I’m looking for some points of interest, I am still undecided whether to drive along the coast or to travel the internal area for a few days,in any case I will arrive near Stavanger.
I’d really like to meet you for a trekking and activation together.

How nice.
There are many nice places to visit in the center of Norway as well, so you can’t really go wrong.
Please send me a direct message if you decide to go close to here :slight_smile:

I confirm that I will be near Stavanger in August.
I’m looking for some 2 points summits, I’d like to reach an easy 4 points summit.
I will contact you in private for some advices
Many thanks Kjetil
