Norway - from Stavanger to Lofoten

Hi Horizon Unlimited friends,

anyone traveling in Norway ?

I'm currently stay in Stavanger (it rains heavily) and tomorrow i will drive in direction to Lofoten.

My first ideas for the trip see - http://www.horizonsunlimited.com/hub...564#post431395 -
but i'm very flexible with the route (i have about 3 weeks time)

The main thing - have fun to drive with the motorbike and no hassle

Happy to get your feedback

Currently on the road from DE over Baltikum to FIN, Åland, SW, NO (most time of my trip) & to DE with my Honda Transalp 700 // Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/fwagner.de

Hi Frank

Looks like a great trip. I hope the weather improves for you. I am in the early stages of planning a trip for next summer from Brevik to Kirkenes and would be interested in any advice you might have about the best route. I notice you are taking the Atlantic Highway (which I only found out about recently!) from Molde to Kristansund, which means taking the ferry from Vestnes to Molde. How many ferries will you be taking and have you a rough idea of the cost. I was thinking of taking a more westerly route than you north of Bergen which would probably involve more ferries.
I would really appreciate any advice on the best practical scenic route north.
Keep us posted on how your trip goes and good luck!

We're a few days ahead of you. Did the awesome road through Geiranger today, including the not to be missed (even though it cost £11) toll road up to Dalsnibba - If you go there see if you can find the Horizons sticker I put there today!

The Trollstigveien is also pretty good. We're in Andalsnes tonight and are seeing the sun for the frist time in over a week!

Atlantic road tomorrow....

Mike, most short ferry crossings are £7-9 each. Get yourself a Michelen map No 752 and hunt out the green roads, they're the touristy/pretty ones but to be honest we've been in Norway for a week no and EVERY day and EVERY road has been fantastic - even in the rain. So good in fact that I'm running out of time and might not make it up to NordKapp.

More on my blog...
