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, sometimes over serpentines eating their way through the mountain landscape and then again over sweeping 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-washed wooden cottages.

Tour Character:

A tour over the most magnificent roads in Norway. You will ride almost 2,200 km over serpentines and coastal roads. A daily stage is longer with 370 km, but still easily manageable. The road conditions are good. The winding stages require concentration, but also bring a lot of fun riding. Here and there you use ferries across the impressive fjords.

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 will have a morning, midday and/or evening ferry at your disposal (departure approx.: 08:30, 11:45 or 18:15, arrival then 12:25, 14:10 or 20:40). Kristiansand is a popular tourist destination especially in the summer months and has many beautiful beaches to offer. The old wooden houses give the old town - also called "Kvadaturen" because of its chessboard-like layout - 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 cliffs, riding through one or the other tunnel to get a first impression of the stunning nature of Norway. Stavanger is the fourth largest city in Norway and is famous for the old Gamle Stavanger district with its whitewashed wooden houses. Overnight stay in Stavanger.

Day 3: Stavanger - Eidfjord (approx. 260 km)

In the next few days, the fjords of Norway are the landscape elements that will dominate your route. Fjords, coast, islands, tunnels and some ferry passages are on the program - a varied trip awaits you. Via Kinsarvik, where Eid Fjord and Sør Fjord meet, you will ride to Eidfjord. Overnight stay in Eidfjord or surroundings.

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

If you want, you can already take a trip 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 quite mild area around the Sogne Fjord, you will enter 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 pass perhaps the most remarkable stage of this journey. 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 the other of the 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 will ride along the Atlantic Road to Kristiansund. As short as this Atlantic road is with its less than ten kilometers, it is just as sensational: 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 to a settlement of the area already several thousand years ago. From here you will head south again. 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, which eats 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 a view 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 fell victim to fires several times and have been rebuilt true to the original. 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 arrive at Hardangervidda, a huge plateau that can still surprise you with snow even in May. The landscape contrasts wonderfully with the idyll along the fjords. The waterfall Vøringsfossen, an impressive waterfall at the northwestern end of the Hardangervidda plateau, 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.
