Southern Norway 2017

Road trip to see the top sights in Southern Norway: Kjerag, Preikestolen, Trolltunga, 25 km long Lærdalstunnelen, Besseggen ridge trail and Trollstigen. The two week trip started from Turku to Stockholm by ferry.

The route. Total lenght of the road trip was about 3400 km. (Click to enlarge map) Interactive Google map here with places

Other places worth to visit in Southern Norway:

  • Nærøyfjorden and Nærøydalen – beautiful road between mountains
  • Geiranger and Flydalsjuvet – nice sight down to the fjord
  • Utladalen and Utla river near Vettisfossen (one of Norway’s tallest waterfalls). Nice waterfalls close to parking. Can’t recommend visiting Vettisfossen, because the end of the long trail is difficult to walk, sight to the waterfall poor and the place very wet and windy because of the huge mass of water surging down.
