    Drama, beauty and danger at The Atlantic Road

    The Atlantic Road, to Norwegians better known as Atlanterhavsveien, belongs to the 18 national tourist routes of Norway. And you can’t deny that, because this road is amazing! This public piece of asphalt, which actually looks more like a rollercoaster than a road, connects the islands Averøy, Vevang and Eide to the mainland of Kristiansund and Molde. The road is barely 8 kilometers long, but is renowned worldwide for her impressive appearance. The Atlantic Road hops over the ocean via 8 very special bridges from island to island. It undulates, folds, curls, twists, climbs and descends in the most spectacular ways from Molde to Kristiansund. The Norwegians consider this road as cultural heritage and in…

    Magical reindeer sleigh ride through the frozen valley of Camp Tamok

    Warning! This article contains pictures of reindeer butts and a blonde woman with an insanely big smile on her face. I have been super passionate about reindeer for some time now. That’s not a secret. So when Bart-Jan and I decided to take a trip to Tromsø, I knew one thing for sure: I had to go on a sleigh ride with Santa’s helpers! I was super excited to go see the breathtaking Northern Lights, go whale watching in the fjords, but I had one main priority: to cuddle with REINDEER! Soon we discovered Lyngsfjord Adventure. An organization that’s specialized in dog sledding, reindeer sledding, snowmobile safari and sleeping under the Northern Lights.…

    Avalanche danger on our way to the Juklavatnet

    Nearby Folgefonna national park, in municipality Kvinnherad, you can find breathtaking mountain lake Juklavatnet all the way up the Mauranger mountain. You can take a hike up there, starting at the Jukla kraftstasjon. It will take you about 3 hours to walk a roundtrip. The perfect warming-up for when you’re planning to hike the nearby Trolltunga the next day! The trail is unmarked, but quite easy to follow. Make sure you wear waterproof boots though, because you have to cross small streams and it can be very hard to keep your feet dry when there’s a lot of meltwater. Once you get to the Juklavatnet you can walk further up to…

    Norway is about to open a scenic viewing point over Gaularfjellet

    One of the better kept secrets of fjord Norway is the Gaularfjellet. Gaularfjellet is a mountain lying in the county of Sogn og Fjordane, which is crossed by a road from Dragsvik to Moskog. This road belongs to the 18 official national tourist routes of Norway and treats its visitors to something that can be called quite an impressive roadtrip. The journey starts at the longest fjord in the world (Sognefjord) and takes you over tiny mountain paths, to see lively rapids and waterfalls, all the way along the river Gaula to the highest point of the route: the Gaularfjellet. Last summer we traveled over this amazing national tourist route as well. With our favorite part: the highest point…
