Road trip in Norway

Road trip in Norway

Trolltunga is the hallmark of Norway. It's not easy to get here, but it's definitely worth it. We have prepared a route that will include unusual Norwegian sights on the way to the pearl of Scandinavia.


Stavanger

Let's start our journey from the capital of the commune of Rogaland. If you do not want to get your car to the extreme Western point of Norway, it is convenient to rent a car here. Stavanger-the oil capital of the country, a rich but modest city does not have pompous decorations. Low-rise houses look nice and cozy. Spend a couple of days here to feel the Norwegian culture, eat plenty of fish and walk around the pleasant city.

It takes about 2.5 hours to get to the first natural attraction.

Lysebotn

For starting, drive to Lusebotn. At this point, two mountain chains of the fjord converge, sheep graze in a narrow meadow, waterfalls fall over the stones - as idle as a painted From here, when you catch your breath, move along the serpentine to the Kjerag car Park.

From the Parking lot to the plateau Cheraga need to walk along the path.

Kjeragbolten

This natural wonder attracts tourists no less than Trolltunga. A boulder stuck in the middle of two rocks at an altitude of 1000 meters. Everyone who comes here wants to be photographed on a rock and take the most original picture. If you decide, do not forget about safety, do not risk climbing on a smooth stone during a strong wind or rain.

To get to the next attraction, you need to come back to Lucebotn and take the ferry to Forsand. It is better to buy a ticket to the ship in advance, so that there is a place for you and for the car.

The Lysefjord

The 42 km long fjord road will not make you bored. On the left and right side you can see rocks, waterfalls, overhanging rocks. The amazing nature of the Northern country will open from a new angle.

In Forsand, get behind the wheel again and go across the bridge to the other side of the fjord to the Parking lot.

Preikestolen

We'll have to dismount again. The road will be about 4 km. At the end of this path you will see the "pulpit", so the name of this hollow cliff is translated. A small and straight platform looks especially nice at dawn.

The next crossing is 200 km long.

Odda

The city itself is not very interesting, but it is located between two national parks, each of which is of special interest.

Folgefonna

This reserve is located to the West of Odda and is intended to protect the third largest glacier remaining on the territory of Norway. Gentle hills with unique flora and fauna and the block of Folgefonn itself make up a fabulous picture.

It is 25 km from Odda to the Parking lot next to the attraction.

Troll's Tongue

The final and main point on our route is Trolltunga. This unusual geological phenomenon is located at an altitude of 700 meters above the Ringedalsvatn lake. It offers a stunning view that everyone who likes to travel, dreams of seeing at least once in their life. This place attracts crowds of tourists to take memorable photos. You can stand in line with them, or you can just enjoy the pristine beauty of Norway.
