Trip suggestion - Live in Norway

Hi all,

I recently moved to Trondheim. That means I live there. I would like to go on a 4 full day trekking and camping trip (8th-13th August) to some place nice which is with in 4-5 hours of Trondheim. I will be going with two others who are around 28 years old. We are energetic bunch but do not have any steep mountain climbing experience. We will use public transportation. One of my friend was suggesting Geiranger.

1) What place do you recommend for us to visit?

I got in touch with the tourist information center in Geiranger and they told me, I quote "Our area is quite extreme and mountainous, for this reason I would recommend basing yourself in Geiranger, and doing day trips instead of 4 full days." I also read in this forums that Geiranger is sort of filled with lots of tourists and sort of over rated. We would like to go somewhere where it is not so touristy (ironically ;)). It should have a fjord and beautiful landscape and if possible offer us 4 full day trekking and camping experience.

2) Do you have any suggestions for us in this regard?

Thank you very much for your time.

You have to take two buses to get between Grotli and Geiranger. The express bus Oslo-Otta-Stryn-Måløy passes Grotli, and also the road junction to Geiranger (at Langvatn). Then there is a bus to/from Langvatn/Geiranger. If you Google you will find the time tables.
