Valdres Tour Participants

The Valdres Samband partnered with Linda McCormick of Borton Overseas to facilitate group travel to Valdres Norway in 2014.  The tour will take place from July 19 - July 28, 2014 touring the Valdres region.  Departing Oslo, the group toured Eidsvollsbygningen where Norway's Constitution was signed. The bicentennial of that event was May 17, 2014.

Accommodations were provided by The Quality Hotel Fagerness during the annual Jørn Himle-Stemnet  folk music festival.  Day trips included activities that focused on culture, outdoor life, food, music, history and Valdres lifestyle.  A post-tour option continued on to the Stavanger region and included Hardangerfjord and Lysefjorden.  Brave participants hiked up infamous Preikestolen (Pulpit Rock).  The post tour concluded in Stavager on August 2.
