Fjords and mountains

We have the pleasure of inviting you on a new trip with us.

This time we will experience deep fjords, high mountains, glaciers and the coast, almost as far west as one can get in our country.

 

We start in Bergen where we also take guests from Haugesund and Sunnhordland who come with the Coastal Bus to Bergen.

We set course for Voss where we have a small stop.

Furthermore, we are going today over Vikafjellet, to Vangsnes where the famous statue over Fridtjof the Miss looks out over the Sognefjord, the world's second longest fjord. We will take the ferry over to Helle and drive towards Sogndal, Fjærland and stop at Bøyabreen for a good cup of coffee. On to Skei in Jølster where we will spend the night at Thon hotel. Shared dinner at the hotel.

 

The next day the highlights are in line. We leave beautiful Jølster and drive over Utvikfjellet to Olden, Loen and Stryn. Furthermore, we will reach up to Strynefjellet where we will take off at Grotli to Geiranger. Here we will drive down into the beautiful landscape and enjoy the view of the village from spectacular vantage points. Once in Geiranger, we have a nice break in this beautiful fjord village that is on the UNESCO World Heritage List.

Furthermore, we will go up Ørnesvingene with new stops along the way. A short ferry ride brings us across the Norangsfjord to Valldal. This is one of Norway's foremost fruit villages with strawberries and cherries on the list. We drive up the valley where nothing less than the King, Queen and Bishop meet us in the form of mountain peaks at the top of Trollstigen. After a stop here, we will drive down the Trollstigen itself, a magical party road and nature in our country. We also manage a trip to the Trollveggen itself.

We then drive to Åndalsnes and Ålesund where our hotel for the night is waiting for us after a day we will remember for a long time.

 

Today we start in Ålesund and drive south towards Ulsteinvik and Gurskøy. These areas are known for their industry, which we can not help but see. Furthermore, we are going to Stadlandet and up on the Western Cape, where we have a fantastic view of the Stadhavet from north to south. We then drive down the small village of Ervik which is known for its fine condition, popular with surfers. Here we also find St. Svithun chapel, named after the Hurtigruten ship that sank here during World War II.

 

We then drive south and inwards along the Nordfjord, where we will eventually follow Panoramaveien towards Stryn. In the neighboring village of Loen we find our hotel for the evening, where we will have a better dinner together the last evening. After breakfast, those who wish can take the Skylift up the mountain behind the hotel. Here is a fantastic view of the fjord and the surrounding villages. Those who do not want it, have a couple of hours available in beautiful Loen.

 

We then get on the bus and drive out along Nordfjord and to Gaularfjellet, which we drive on the way home. We come here down to Vetlefjorden and to Balestrand where we will have a stop. Then we start the last leg home towards Bergen, where we arrive in the evening. This is a trip where mountains, fjords and seas are experienced in a few days. With good food, many impressions and great experiences.
