Upon our visit to Bergen we moved to the capital of the kingdom of Norway, Oslo. As the day was long and difficult, we rather went straight into bed than taking a stroll in the evening city. Yet we intended to explore the city first thing in the morning.
Upon our visit of unique Borgund Stave Church we got on the European route 16 (E16). It took us to the second largest city in Norway Bergen. There we spent a night and the following day.
Last week we left crooked road of Trollstigen and set off to the unknown. Why the unknown? Perhaps because until today we have not come into conclusion where did we landed with our ferry. What is important that we had the first truly touristy day.
Last time, we visited Norway’s third largest city – Trondheim. Today, we move to Dombas and then we follow a Troll road known as Trollstigen.
We travel again. After the visit in the church town of Gammelstad and Sweden’s capital Stockholm we move to Norway. We visit this time Trondheim, a port city on the shore of Trondheim Fjord and the Nidelva River.
Many people know Troll tongue. This vista is nothing but world-famous and is considered among the most beautiful vistas on the face of the earth. So naturally we did want to see it with our own eyes. Even though we landed in Bergen, we rented a car so in three hours of ride we reached the beginning of the trail. Tyssendal village is essential place on the trail to Troll tongue.
If you visit Rovaniemi in Lapland (a town known for the Santa village) and try a ride on dog or moose pulled carriage among other snow-related activities, there are many other things to see and do.
We visit Lillehammer today which was the place where the Olympics took place in 1994. The bus takes us to ski jump bridges. The entire town is right at our feet. We climb down metal steps and we are lucky. There is a ski training taking place just now. We can see skiers in action.
We can sleep a while longer. Today is a different day. We are about to climb the Bessegen mountain ridge. Its highest peak is Veslfjellet (1 743 m). It is situated in the Jotunheimen mountain area which is the highest in all Norway (there are 29 of the highest peaks of Norway). A third of the area covers the Jotunheimen national park. It is a beautiful place of steep mountains, glaciers, and beautiful valleys.
After a visit in Oslo, there is a long way to our next accomodation - Faksfall camp near Dombås town. Partially, the road takes us along Mjøsa which is the largest lake in Norway. Its total depth is 468 meters.
