    August 13, 2020 in Norway ⋅ ☁️ 13 °C

    Unsere heutige Etappe began mal wieder mit Regen, der uns dann auch bis mittags begleitet hat 🌧️
    Pünktlich, als wir auf die 51 abbogen, ließ der Regen nach 🌦️und wir konnten Valdresflye, die zweithöchste Passtraße Norwegens, im Sonnenschein fahren🌤️. Uns boten sich unglaubliche Ausblicke über die Hochebene mit den Zweitsusendern Jotunheimens. Das Spiel von Licht und Schatten auf den, teils mit Schnee bedeckten Bergen 🏔️, sieht wunderschön aus.
    Man hat fast das Gefühl auf Valdresflye zu Schwebem, wäre da nicht der harte Wind 🌬️.

    Fossen Camping

    July 27, 2019 in Norway ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    Heute wieder Fahrtag, jetzt in Richtung Fagernes.
    Zunächst ein Stück die E 15 in nordwestlicher Richtung, dann nach Süden die Rv 51 über die Valdres-Flya mit dem westlich von uns liegenden Jotunheimen Nasjonalpark. Wieder spektakuläre Blicke in die Bergwelt Norwegens (morgen wollen wir noch einmal hierher zurückkehren).

    Der ursprünglich vorgesehene Zeltplatz Beitostølen musste wegen eines heute im unmittelbaren Umfeld stattfindenden, exzessiven Rockkonzertes (neben der Lautstärke, die ja nicht unbedingt ein Problem darstellt, ist hierzulande der Alkoholkonsum ein echtes Problem) abgewählt werden.
    Der nunmehr angesteuerte, vielgelobte Campingplatz von Fagernes wirkte auf uns nach den Tagen in der Natur wie eine Anlage zur Massentierhaltung.
    Also wieder 7 Kilometer zurück zu einem kleineren und ruhigen Plätzchen im Grünen (Fossen Camping) am Flüsschen Begna mit eigener Badestelle (duschen oder baden gehen heist hier die Alternative 😉).

    Dann noch eine kurze Stippvisite nach Fagernes und ein kurzes Treffen mit Klaus und Elke... am Mittwoch fahren wir gemeinsam von Oslo nach Kiel.

    Bergen to Fagernes

    August 12, 2019 in Norway ⋅ 🌧 15 °C

    Today was a magical day, although a little wet at times, nothing dampened our total Wow will you look at that!!! moments. We set off from Bergen,stopping in Voss the town famous for extreme sports, continuing through breathtaking scenery, stopping for the fjord cruise, then completing our day's journey to our overnight stop in Fagernes. This is a winter playground for skiing. Along the way we passed through the longest tunnel in the world, 25kms in length. Each 6 kms there is a widened area for turning, together with a coloured light show, used to stimulate the driver from the dull colour of the tunnel. This tunnel was commenced in 1995 and finished in 2000 just 5 years later-the rock etc removed from the mountain for the tunnel was then used to make the road-very clever these Norwegians.
    We stopped at a beautiful water fall/cascade for a few more pics to add to our ever expanding number! Along the way we took a side road that was once the original route before roads were formed, with suspended wire bridges, ladders and ramps where water met sheer cliff faces

    Fjord Cruise 1 ( Sognefjord)

    August 12, 2019 in Norway ⋅ ☁️ 16 °C

    Today we were spoiled by more spectacular scenery. We boarded a ferry and cruised up the fjord for the following 2 hours.
    The Sognefjord fjord, nicknamed the King of the Fjords and is the largest and deepest fjord in Norway. It stretches 205 kms inland from the ocean to the small village of Skjolden. It's maximum width is 4.5kms with a maximum 2depth of 1,308 meters.
    Duncan and I have nicknamed it the OMG Fjord or maybe the jaw dropping Fjord-truly magnificent.

    September 12, 2020 in Norway ⋅ 🌙 5 °C

    Today I started quite late in trondheim & had many short lifts before a drug Counselor took me to Fagemes. I had a long nice talk about growing the own personality & defining his goals & challenging his problems.
    Now I'm staying in a workshop & rest before I start early tomorrow to get to Sandnes.

    Day 19: Fegernes - Time for an Aquavit!

    June 23, 2017 in Norway ⋅ ☁️ 11 °C

    After another awesome breakfast we headed off through Norway again. The weather had become quite wet so thankfully we were in the bus this morning. Our first stop was at Voss where we enjoyed a cup of coffee and tea and one of the best vanilla slices we've ever had. It was raining at Voss so we didn't much else but hang out in the cafe.

    We then ventured to the Sognefjord to catch a ferry from Gudvangen to Laerdal. Whilst the scenery was breathtaking the weather was not good so we needed ponchos to protect us from the rain. I enjoyed the ferry ride but some on the tour didn't, I guess the tour guide need to be god so he can control the weather as well. You have to make the best of it and at least we didn't get sunburnt!

    After the ferry ride we continued our bus trip into the eastern side of Norway passing by the highest mountain range in Scandinavia.

    We arrived in Fagernes at around 6pm and went for walk around town prior to dinner. Dinner was buffet and the food was ok but they did run out at times due to the number of people in the restaurant. It was disappointing seeing people on our tour blaming another tour of Asians for this when we were eating just as much if not more than them. It was the kitchen that wasn't keeping up and as it turned out the people who were late and patient probably got the best of the food.

    After tea Amy and I, Bec and Luke and Adrian decided to adjourn to the bar and try Aquavit, the local drink. We ended up trying three types as well as a few jacks and Jameson's and had a bit of a night out in the bar. We had a lot of fun and have souvenired some shot glasses to remember the night. The drinks were expensive so it's the least we could do! Ha!

    A great fun night was had and we are enjoying our holiday very much however the tour is quickly coming to an end. Only three more sleeps left.
