Hike to the End of the World in 6 Days
The hike takes you to an area that has been mostly deserted from the early seventies, so abandoned farms and ancient farmsteads set their mark on the surroundings. You probably won‘t meet anyone. Except perhaps sheep - and elves. This is their land. But they´re willing to share. The mountains are glorious and they come in all shapes, sizes and colors. Pink, brown, yellow, green, brown. Not to mention the moss, ranging from bright neon green to pale gray. You will follow rails that lead you through lush valleys, up and around the beautiful mountains, across brooks and rivers and along deep fjords.
