Conquering the highest mountain road and an interview with Norwegian radio

Yesterday was an eventful day. We drove on the highest mountain road in Norway, managed to have a small altercation with another vehicle breaking our wing mirror, and I was interviewed for Norwegian radio, live! The RV55 from Lom starts with lush valley meadows and the road slowly ascends through the valley before reaching the summit at 1,434 metres, making the road northern Europe's highest mountain pass. According to Google maps, the route we covered is 138 km long and…

Dalsnibba – The best view in Norway?

Fantastic, dramatic, spectacular, authentic or unique? I don’t think that any of these words adequately describe Fjord Norway. Reading through a leaflet this morning about the Geiranger area of Norway a phrase in it said “Norway is not a place. It’s a feeling”. I totally agree. You need to be in Norway to fully appreciate the magnificence of this country. Our journey to Dalsnibba would exceed all expectations. We had a free camping night last night (Sunday 27th May) at…

Oldevatn Camping, Norway

When we find a good campsite I like to tell the campsite owner that we have enjoyed our stay. Oldevatn Camping near Olden in Norway was one of those campsites. When I was chatting to the Norwegian owner he told me that they had bought the campsite from his wife's mother. He was very keen to tell me about how his wife does the cleaning and looks after the flowers and he is respnsible for the bookings and makes sure…

Geiranger ferry and the awesome fjord.

Geiranger fjord is one of Norway's most visited attractions so after two nights at  the very good  campsite Geirangerfjorden Feriesenter, (coordinates N62 6 54", E7 11 6") we drove a mile down the road to Geiranger village itself to catch the Geiranger ferry to Hellesylt, a journey of one hour. Before boarding the ferry we paid a visit to the Joker supermarket to buy more milk and a few other groceries. After a bill of £31.70 for 9 items it was…

Geiranger and the terrifying Trollstigen road.

After 3 nights in wonderful  Ålesund, and watching Norwegians celebrate their Constitution Day on 17th May, it was time to move on. Our next destination was Åndalsnes on Romsdals Fjord, followed by the famous Trollstigen road. After driving through 3 long dark tunnels, including the 4.1 mile long Innfjord tunnel we found another fantastic free overnight parking area along the side of the fjord and with breathtaking views of the mountains. Coordinates N62°34'7", E7°45'19". Free overnight…

Molde to Ålesund – And a Norwegian celebration.

After a washing and motorhome cleaning day we left the wonderful campsite at Molde, with bathrooms like hotel rooms. Our motorhome pitch had fantastic views of 220 peaks  across the fjord (so it says in the tourist information booklet) and the view is known as the Molde Panorama. I was feeling the effects of cleaning our motorhome though as I had a sore…
