Sunrise into the valley by Filip Nystedt on Flickr.

Norangsdalen 02

The Norang valley is sometimes described as “one of the wildest and narrowest in Norway”. Many parts of the valley get no sunlight in winter and there is high risk of avalanches and landslides from the steep sides of the valley, which in some places are nearly 1,000 meters high.

Fortunately, there is no need to visit in winter.
