The first day we get out of Oslo and head to the nature. As soon as we leave the town it will be more of a beautiful scenery with valleys and hills, a mixture of flat roads by rivers, by small lakes, in forests, straight roads, windy roads, roads through open landscape and mountain roads, and this is only the first day. We stay in the small village Ål at a comfortable hotel

Day 3 Ål-Balestrand 300 km

After a hearty breakfast at the hotel we continue to reach higher altitudes before the road drops down to sea level. Now we are in “fjord land” and will, for a few days, enjoy some of mother-nature’s most beautiful creations, where narrow fjords meet the mountains. We arrive at Aurdalsfjorden and eventually Flåm which boasts one of the world’s steepest railways and a quaint little port where cruise ships usually stop. The winding road follows Sognefjordens beautiful shore past small villages and orchards. We spend the night in Balestrand just by Sognefjorden, which is the world’s second longest fjord.

Day 4 Balestrand-Geiranger 260 km

We leave the beautiful hotel and continue north towards Geiranger, one of the most beautiful tourist destinations in the world. Geiranger has been included on UNESCOs list since 2005 and is considered to be among the most scenically outstanding fjord areas on the planet. On the way there you will follow rivers through fertile farmland up on mountains before arriving at the jewel in the crown of the Norwegian Fjords. Here we will stay for the night with a breathtaking view.

After breakfast we head towards Ådalsnes and TROLLSTIGEN (the trolls’ ladder) Scandinavians most famous road and the start of our descent.

We stay at our comfortable hotel and have a good time over dinner reflecting on the amazing days` ride.

Day 6 Sunndalsöra-Odda 245 km

In the morning we get up on the bikes and now follow the valley and then the road leading us up on the mountain. There we will ride the small gravel roads and get a wonderful view over the mountains with scattered lakes. We will pass river crossings just to spice up the ride a bit more. At the end of the day the road takes us down to a valley where we will stay at a relaxing hotel in the small village of Otta.

Day 7 Odda-Oslo 265 km

We cross a bridge over the river and follow the gravel road up to small farms situated on the mountainside. We continue on gravel roads through pine forests with many lakes and rivers and later on we pass the area of Lillehammer where the winter Olympics were held in 1994.
