    Norway for me, is a hidden gem that some people don't even consider it as an option to tour, sadly they don't know what they're missing.

    I've no doubt it's going to be spectacular. Very much looking forward to that end of the trip!

    I, like many others here, will follow your trip with great interest. I've already done my route from Southern Norway to Nordkapp, just don't have a clue when it will take place. As I've said before, life's not a dress rehearsal.
    Good for you Octoberon y115.gif y115.gif

    Thanks, @Bikerman. I appreciate the support and interest. I'd like to give something back to the forum and hopefully keep people entertained. More fun that way. :) It's something I've had in mind for a few years but Covid put the brakes on it, as with so many things. Now it's time to revice the planning and get back on track. I'll share routes and plans as we go and I'm always open to ideas and advice.

    Nice thing to do, rather than contribute crap that on the surface just seems like they want to wind people up. WHY.
    I'm sure @Erling will point you in the right direction. North first then turn around then it's south. clever.gif

    I've only been to Norway by car, but Trollstigen was certainly one of the highlights.

    That's one hell of a road on a bike.

    I'll keep that one in mind. Getting the map out later but it's old-fashioned sliced tree. I've been looking at how to get something more internet-friendly and sharable.

    This is a must too. At 24.5 kilometres, the Lærdal tunnel is the world's longest road tunnel. Like an idiot, I didn't stop to take any pictures. What a Plonker.

    It's near Geiranger, where you'll want to go anyway.

    Update: I've been back through the thread today and pulled out all the useful sites and other information in to Evernote, which I'm using to collate and organise everything. I've also got a map started and begun adding information about places. No route yet but I'll put a link in here sometime in the next few days as a work-in-progress.

    Thank you so much to everyone who's jumped in already given me lots of useful stuff. I really appreciate it.

    How about doing it as a charity thing?
    I suppose you are tied in but worth a thought?
    I'd certainly sponsor you as (I suspect) others would?

    If you go to Geiringer, you must go to the Flydalsjuvet lookout ( Geiranger lookout )

    You can then enjoy views like this.

    You can get to Geiranger by ferry and enjoy scenery like this on the way in.

    Just a word of warning for the ferry, it's £44 one way, expensive for a hour trip, but boy you don't get them views on the Dover Calais route. You get guided tour so to speak on the way in.
    I don't know who's more excited about your trip, you or me. Nodding Yes.gif .
    Lofoten Islands could be another possibility on your list. Anyway get back to the map. :joy:

    Could do. I've done it before when a friend and I organised a trip through all the counties of England, Scotland and Wales in 4 days, not using motorways or going anywhere requirng a ferry. That's where the photo comes from of my old RF900 that I posted in a different thread. I'll give it some thought.
