    Hej Lars!
    Thanks.
    Geiranger, Trollstigen, and Atlantvägen are my objectives, but how to get there is open.
    Can you promise nice sunny weather? ;)

    You will have to place an order to https://www.yr.no/ as they do the weather forecasts . . . :). I suggested this route because it adds some more of the roads from National Tourist Roads of Norway http://www.nasjonaleturistveger.no/en which in my opinion are one of the best things that has happened to many great roads suited for riding motorbike in Norway. Enjoy your trip, ride safe.

    I was fortunate to take a Eidelweiss tour to Nordkapp a couple of years ago. The Lofoten Islands were spectacular. Great roads, Great people. We did get pulled over by the police a couple of times for "speed". I have to say you have the best looking, friendliest police I have ever been stopped by.
    You have a beautiful country.

    I'm dying to tour Norway, but it would take nearly a week for me just to get to Trollstigen, and I usually only get a week to tour.
    Maybe in a couple of years when my little one is in school, I'll be able to take a two week break and do it properly.

    Agree with comments and after 3 trips from England to Norway in 4 years I just come home with a longer list of places to visit next time.
    The route from Laerdaltunnelen to Sandane,quick ferry to Lote and along the Fv698 Panorama road to Stryn was fantastic.
    Even the downhill drop down to Gasemyr camping on the E39 is one not to be missed, nice friendly site. Arriving from Klakegg it always reminds me of the James Bond film Casino Royale where they barrel-rolled the Aston, despite being filmed in uk terrain seems to be a copy of this road as it follows alongside the winding stream.

    For me, in Devon, it is 450miles to Eindhoven B&B hotel, 450 miles to hotel near Kolding, Denmark and then a 'simple' 170 miles to be in Hirtshalls for the 1pm ferry to Norway of day three. One day in Norway? and return. Think you need to take a sickie, book round a bank holiday and 'break down' with the bike in Norway once you get there. Ring work, text home, 'stuck' waiting for a spare thingymebob (metric version?)
    Makes me glad to be retired and having free time.

    Yeah, I know what you mean. For me, with a little one, I found it hard to be away for more than about 6 days. My recent trip to the Pyrenees was 9 days, and after 5 days, all I could think about was getting back home to my wife and toddler. When she's older and in school, I reckon it should be easier.

    But then you probably have one or two more kids to miss . . . :) I have three grown up "kids", so my wife and I have more time to spend on tours (except when we baby-sit for our grand-kids . . . :))

    I was in Norway last month: this is one of the views I got. (Sailed from Shetland to Bergen, down to Gothenburg Sweden). I didn't get to try the roads, alas. image.jpeg
