Fields of bog cotton lined the lakeshore as we hiked up towards Kyrza in Jotunheimen National Park for a night of wild camping. The gentle breeze was catching the seed heads and sending them off away from the parent plants. At 1400 meters we were well above the treeline and bog was naturally growing in this area because of the wet soil. In Ireland, it is likely that our bogs have only formed because of deforestation by humans as there is nowhere in Ireland that is really above the treeline.
A wild camping road trip is a fantastic way of seeing Norway, especially with their right to roam. In our ten days we visited five of the country’s 44 national parks and never went further north than Oppdal. We barely scratched the surface of what Norway has to offer. I’ll definitely be back.
