Description

Spectacular, breathtaking, fascinating - admittedly, these terms are often used in an inflationary way when describing landscapes... But with this trip, it applies completely! With the Eagle Road, the Trollstigen, the Atlantic Road, or the Sognefjell Road you will follow some truly impressive stretches on this motorcycle trip. Sometimes over barren plateaus and then again along lush green fjord landscapes kissed by the mild climate. Also, over serpentines cutting through the mountain landscape and then again over wide roads with mighty rock faces on one side and the calm waters of the fjords on the other, past thundering waterfalls, contrasting natural landscapes, and red-painted wooden cottages. One thing is for sure: this trip is characterized by remarkable stages that hold fantastic travel impressions in store.

Itinerary:

Day 1: Arrival

Today you will travel by ferry from Hirtshals in Denmark to Kristiansand in Norway. Depending on the day of departure, you can choose between midday and/or an evening ferry (departure: 11:45 or 18:00, arrival: 14:00 or 20:15). Kristiansand is a popular tourist destination, especially in the summer months, and has many beautiful beaches to offer. The old wooden houses, also called "Kvadaturen" because of their chessboard-like layout, give the old town an idyllic atmosphere. If you like, you can visit the fish market - Fiskebrygge, and enjoy real Norwegian "Fiskepudding" in one of the restaurants to get in the mood. Overnight stay in Kristiansand.

Day 2: Kristiansand - Stavanger (approx. 240 or 260 km)

Ride to Stavanger. Again and again, you will have views of the water and the rugged rock faces, riding through one or the other tunnel and getting a first-hand impression of the impressive nature of Norway. Stavanger is the fourth largest city in Norway and is famous for the old Gamle Stavanger district with its wooden houses painted white. Overnight stay in Stavanger.

Day 3: Stavanger - Kinsarvik (approx. 230 km)

During the next few days, the fjords of Norway are the landscape elements that will characterize your route. Fjords, coast, islands, tunnels, and some ferry passages are on the program - a varied trip awaits you. Your destination today is Kinsarvik. The small town is located at the point where the Eid Fjord and the Sør Fjord meet. Overnight stay in Kinsarvik or surroundings.

Day 4: Kinsarvik - Sogndal (approx. 180 km)

If you wish, you can already make an excursion to Vøringsfossen, an impressive waterfall at the northwestern end of the Hardangervidda plateau. On a bridge over the Eid Fjord and past Flåm, you will reach the Sogne Fjord, the deepest and longest fjord in Europe. Overnight stay in Sogndal.

Day 5: Sogndal - Sognefjell road - Trollstigen - Åndalsnes (approx. 370 km)

From the still forested and a quite mild area around the Sogne Fjord, you will reach more barren mountain regions and thus experience a truly contrasting stage with spectacular road sections! The Sognefjell road leads from Gaupne to Lom and allows fascinating landscape impressions in the Norwegian high mountains. Shortly before you reach Åndalsnes, a small detour leads you to the Trollstigen. Here, you will ride, perhaps, the most remarkable stage of this trip. The Trollstigen winds in tight hairpin curves through the mountainous landscape. The panorama is literally breathtaking! With so many impressions, one should not forget to pay attention to the road as well. On today's ride, it is worth stopping at one or two viewpoints for a look at the fjords, the waterfalls, and the mighty cliffs. Overnight stay in Åndalsnes.

Day 6: Åndalsnes - Atlantic Road - Molde (approx. 210 km)

You ride along the Atlantic Road to Kristiansund. As short as this Atlantic road is, with its less than ten kilometers, as sensational it is: You ride over bridges and islets, very close to the sea. The panorama is fantastic! The port city of Kristiansund is the northernmost stop on your journey. It is built on three islands and its history goes back a long way: excavations testify that the area was settled several thousand years ago. From here, you will head back south. Overnight stay in Molde.

Day 7: Molde - Eagle Route - Geiranger - Stryn (approx. 180 km)

On the way to Geiranger, you will ride along the Eagle Road, cutting its way through the landscape in narrow serpentines - with a gradient of up to ten percent! It is definitely worth stopping at the viewing platform, which offers scenery of the Geiranger Fjord. It is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Fjord Norway and is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Steep cliffs reflected in the calm waters of the fjord, waterfalls, snow-covered mountain peaks and yet mild climate on the fjord - a contrasting natural wonder. Overnight stay in Stryn.

Day 8: Stryn - Bergen (approx. 290 km)

A beautiful route - sometimes winding, sometimes straight, sometimes the water on one side and the rocks on the other, sometimes lush green and then again barren, past waterfalls and red, wooden houses. With Bergen, you reach Norway's second-largest city. The old merchant houses of the Hanseatic quarter Bryggen were repeatedly burned down and have been rebuilt, true to the originals. Small stores and cafés invite you to browse. A walk through the open-air museum Gamle Bergen with its old wooden houses is a must. And a visit to the fish market is just as recommendable as a ride on the Fløibanen funicular up the more than 300-meter-high Fløyen. Overnight stay in Bergen.

Day 9: Bergen - Vøringsfossen - Geilo (approx. 240 km)

You take the bridge over the Eid Fjord and reach Hardangervidda, a huge high plateau that can surprise you with snow even in May. The landscape contrasts wonderfully, with the idyll along the fjords. The waterfall Vøringsfossen is also on your route. With Geilo, you reach an important winter sports resort. In summer, people like to hike, bike or fish here. Overnight stay in Geilo.

Day 10: Geilo - Oslo (approx. 220 km)

Enjoy the last stage through the picturesque landscape. Arrived in Oslo, you can use the time to explore. The Royal Castle, the striking brick City Hall, and the Vigeland Sculpture Park are just a small selection of the highlights. A stroll through the Grünerløkka district, with its pretty vintage stores, cafes, and restaurants, reveals an interesting side of Oslo beyond the major sights. Overnight stay in Oslo.

Day 11: Departure

Ride to the ferry port and embarkation, departure to Germany (approx. 2:00 pm). Overnight stay on board.

Day 12: Arrival in Kiel

In the morning (approx. 10.00 a.m.) the ship arrives in Kiel.
