Norway – out in the fjords of the Vikings homeland

- Norway

Before my trip to Norway I heard a lot about its beauty, but I wasn’t prepared for this! Fjords, glaciers, lakes, tunnels, beaches, Vikings (uhm), incredible hikes, lots of salmon and the Northern lights…all packed in a couple of weeks with a car and a tent. All you’ll need. (ok you will also need to plunder your savings account unfortunately ;))

We started off in the city of Bergen before heading towards Odda and the Trolltunga hike.

Trolltunga is a piece of rock jutting horizontally out of a mountain about 700 meters above a lake. It is a total of a 9 to 10-hour hike, covering 22km. A lot of cursing included on the way and sore muscles for days. But breathtaking all the way.

We covered quite some distance via Alesund, Jotunheimen, Hardanger & Geiranger Fjord, Undredal and the Jostedalsbreen Glacier to end up in Trondheim. Then took the boat to the Lofoten islands to start another definite highlight of the trip.

Jostedalsbreen Glacier: Largest glacier in continental Europe with 600 meters at the thickest part of the glacier. Best tour with our Argentinian guide Carlos from the ‘Ice Troll’. The Atlantic Road: The road is an 8 kilometers long section of County Road 64 that connects the island and municipality of Averøy with the mainland at Eide. It runs across partially inhabited islands and skerries. Best driven on a stormy afternoon to see the rough sea. Don’t think of camping anywhere near it. Lofoten Islands: An island group lying within the Arctic circle. You will find everything from distinctive scenery with mountains and peaks, open sea and sheltered bays to beaches and untouched lands. This place was the

This place was the unforgettable highlight of the trip and we were even lucky enough to see the northern lights!

I must say it was hard to find your website in google.
You write great articles but you should rank your blog higher in search engines.
