This is the third part of our road trip in Norway. So far we had absolutely beautiful nature, kind people and some weird weather. Ranging from sunny and 20°C to snow. Some days were spent in a T-shirt, others in our puffy.

Trying to cover as many Nasjonal turist veger as possible we chose to go ‘up’ one way and ‘down’ the other. In total we managed to do 10 of these 18 scenic routes. Not bad if I may say so myself.
Starting off in Groa we made our way to Bud via the Atlanterhavsvegen. The views were amazing and even though the route was quite crowded at times it was definitely worth the detour. We found a campsite just outside of Bud and got a beautiful spot by the water to park our van.
We took the Geiranger – trollstigen scenic route and stopped about halfway for the night. The route was amazing and had some breathtaking views. We were happy our camper isn’t too large as the trollstigen (trolls stairs) has some very narrow turns in it. Looking down is not for the faint-hearted. Afterwards we had a lovely cup of coffee and carrot cake, a travel tradition, with a view on a waterfall.
We covered the last part of the Geiranger – trollstigen scenic route and spent the night in a campsite near Nordberg. From there we did a day trip to Lom and did one of the best dayhikes I’ve done.
We made our way to Gjerde via the Sognefjellet scenic route and spent two amazing days near the glaciers. Too bad the weather was terrible, but it was a great excuse to stay in a cabin instead of the van.
The final part of our trip will be available next Friday. Want to see more pictures? Check out my Instagram account via @gone_roaming_blog
