4 begun with a visit at Kjenndalsbreen,
a 15 min drive from Loen,
and the pub owner was right, it sure was worth the trip.
we´re heading to Dalsnibba, a 1470 m high mountain top with a
magnificent view over Geiranger valley and the Geiranger fjord.
The road down from Dalsnibba to Geiranger is a 5 km, very curvy
mountain road. When we finally reached Geiranger we rented a cabin at
Fossen camping with a great view over Geiranger and it´s harbour.
day 5 we drove to Trollstigen, the Path of the Trolls, and Åndalsnes.
The road from Geiranger is surrounded by many majestic
waterfalls for example the Seven Sisters, a famous fall. This
part of the trip was the part where the scenery was extraordinary
and we drove to Eidsdal and a 20 min ferry-trip and then we reached
the goal for the trip, Åndalsnes and Trollväggen, the Wall of
the Trolls. This is a place that can´t be described and no
photo will make it justice.
You just have to be there!
now turn south, the next stop was Dombås where we rented a
cabin at Dombås camping, just in time for a big rain. After the
rain we ate the best and biggest hamburger we´ve ever had.
rest of the trip was more of transportation. Off course we had
to stop at Lillehammer, the Olympic host –94. We stayed the
last night on a camping in Lillehammer and walked around looking
at the town with the ski jump stadium and all the other places we´d
seen on TV.
this trip we have just seen a small part of Norway, there is lot
more to see and many more roads made for biking. The south part
with it´s coast roads or
the north part with it´s small fishing villages and midnight
sun is both worth a
you come from Europe you can travel to Norway by ferry both from
Denmark and England, or you can cross Sweden.
Maybe next years trip will be one of those.
