Why did I name this page Norway Mountains Norwegian Nature? Because this country is known for its clean, untouched nature. Come along with me and see.

"Den som gjør en reise har noe å fortelle" (the one who travels has something to share).

This is an old Norwegian proverb (Dette er et gammelt Norsk ordtak).

If you have traveled to Norway "The Country of the North", you surely would have a lot to tell about and tons of beautiful pictures to show your family and friends.

Have a glimpse (below) of Norway mountains and Norwegian nature, where I grew up.

When you listen to the "The Mountain King", by Grieg, you can hear the brooks giggle and the thundering waterfalls galloping down the wild mountains sides.

When born here, Norway mountains Norwegian nature is planted deep in our soul.

I have spent many summers at Tokleskaret going to sleep at night by the non-stop lullaby of the dancing waterfalls.

The laughing brooks and the loudly humming river is "nature's orchestrated melodies of the mountain king". In "the olden days" farmers (bønder) employed ladies (budeier/seterjenter) to care for the cows, which were kept in the mountains during the summer.

Budeia lived in the farmer's mountain cabins (setra). In some places of the country, this form of farming tradition still goes on.

The grass in the mountains is especially rich and nutritious so the cows would give extra rich and delicious milk.

Budeia milked the cows and made cheese
and butter from the milk, which was kept chilled in ice-cold mountain streams.

The dairy products were carried down to the farm.

Climbing Romsdalshorn

trollwall-trollveggen-romsdal-norway
Romsdal mountains are also called "the Alps of the North" or "Romsdalsalpene".

Mountain climbers from all over the world come here to test their skills and to conquer these wild, majestic peaks.

Sometimes these daring visiting climbers venture up into these dangerous peaks without guides that know the territory well and occasionally they have to be rescued with helicopters.

These risky climbs end well most times, but unfortunately, sometimes not.

The white line indicates the route Russian mountain climbers used to conquer this peak.
