Trollstigen Viewpoint
Never boring and anything but flat ... those are the valleys and valleys of Eastern Norway, but that certainly also applies to this route to Western Norway! Western Norway is one of the most beautiful parts of Norway. West Norway is also the fjord area of Norway. This region falls under the More og Romsdal region. This has been the most popular region among tourists for years. Not surprising: in addition to the huge fjords, there are grand waterfalls, special towns and impressive glaciers ...

You start, if you wish, with 25 KM of gravel roads. If you do not want to drive on gravel roads, skip route points 3 to 8, and keep following the road until the main road "3", then turn right and turn right again onto "29" (Folldalsvegen) in Stea.

You then pass through the Dovrefjell National Park, the Dovrefjell National Park (or actually Dovrefjell-Sunndalsfjella National Park) is the best place in Norway to see musk oxen in the wild. The mountain plateau in particular is a suitable place to see the animals. But you can also come across them in the lower forests and streams, even along the E6 motorway. So be careful! A coffee break is also planned in the park.

After coffee on to the Slettafossen, this is an extremely powerful waterfall in the Rauma river, this is a 68 km long river. The Rauma flows into the Romsdalsfjord and the Atlantic Ocean. Definitely stop, there is also a nice shop. When you have crossed the river Rauma, the climb to the Trollstigen begins, where you definitely have to stop upstairs to have something to eat and drink, but above all to enjoy the view and of course to buy a souvenir. After the Trollstigen, cross the fjord with the ferry Linge - Eidsdal to the next experience: Dalsnibba! Dalsnibba is a mountain of 1476 meters in the province of Møre og Romsdal in Norway. It is located above Geiranger, 7 kilometers from the Geirangerfjord. Dalsnibba can be reached via a toll road from the RV 63. The mountain is also regularly covered with snow in the summer. Is the few NOK in toll more than worth it, so definitely drive up. After Dalsnibba it is winding to the hotel, where you can process the impressions again and prepare for the tour through this area.

In this 5 star route you mainly drive on good roads, take the time for the stops in the Dovrefjell National Park & Dalsnibba.

General information:
Norway is known for its amazing natural beauty. Fjords that tens of miles into the country, snow-covered high plains, sharp mountain peaks and vast forests. In this sparsely populated country, most people live in the cities, the capital of which is Oslo.

Some practical tips:
Tolls must be paid on a large number of roads in Norway. For many routes that is temporary: in Norway the costs for new roads, bridges and tunnels are paid by tolls. When the construction costs are settled, the toll on that specific route is lifted again. Bergen, Oslo, Trondheim, Kristiansand and some other cities also charge (city) tolls.
It is not necessary to take action when staying in Norway. Anyone approaching a toll road can simply drive on without stopping. With cameras above the road, the license plate of the vehicle is scanned, not the license plate of the trailer or caravan. It takes a long time for the photos to be processed.
The bill is then sent to the Euro Parking Collection (EPC) in London within four to six months. There is no extra charge for this service.
Mandatory on the motorcycle:
Safety vest - A motorcyclist must bring at least one safety vest. In the event of a breakdown or accident, the driver is obliged to wear a safety vest. The ANWB advises motorcyclists to also take a safety vest for a possible passenger.
Advice:
First aid kit - Motorcyclists are advised to bring a first aid kit.

About this region
Hedmark ([ˈhêːdmɑrk] (listen)) was a county in Norway before 1 January 2020, bordering Trøndelag to the north, Oppland to the west and Akershus to the south. The county administration is in Hamar. Hedmark and Oppland counties were merged into Innlandet county on 1 January 2020, when Norway's former 19 counties became 10 bigger counties / regions Hedmark made up the northeastern part of Østlandet, the southeastern part of the country. It had a long border with Sweden to the east (Dalarna County and Värmland County). The largest lakes were Femunden and Mjøsa, the largest lake in Norway. Parts of Glomma, Norway's longest river, flowed through Hedmark. Geographically, Hedmark was traditionally divided into: Hedemarken (east of the lake Mjøsa), Østerdalen ("East Valley" north of the town Elverum), and Solør / Glåmdalen (south of Elverum) and Odal in the very south. Hedmark and Oppland were the only Norwegian counties with no coastline. Hedmark also hosted some events of the 1994 Winter Olympic Games. Hamar, Kongsvinger, Elverum and Tynset were cities in the county. Hedmark was one of the less urbanized areas in Norway; about half of the inhabitants lived on rural land. The population was mainly concentrated in the rich agricultural district adjoining Mjøsa to the southeast. The county's extensive forests supplied much of Norway's timber; at one time, logs were floated down Glomma to the coast but are now transported by truck and train. The Hedmark municipality of Engerdal had the distinction of marking the current southernmost border in Norway of Sápmi, the traditional region of the Sami people. The county was divided into three traditional districts. Those were Hedmarken, Østerdalen and Solør (with Odalen and Vinger). Hedmark was originally a part of the large Akershus amt, but in 1757 Oplandenes amt was separated from it. Some years later, in 1781, this was divided into Kristians amt (now Oppland) and Hedemarkens amt. Until 1919, the county was called Hedemarkens amt.

About this route collection
Sweden and Norway are beautiful countries. You will find nice cities, but also impressive nature reserves. This versatility makes Sweden & Norway the perfect countries for an impressive motorcycle vacation.

In this collection 14 beautiful routes through Sweden & Norway.

Good preparation is half the battle, so please read the tips below carefully.
1. Check the weather forecast. It can be very hot in Sweden & Norway, but it can also get very cold. Always check the weather forecast before you go, so that you can pack the right clothes.
2. Determine in advance which route or routes you want to follow. That way you don't drive like a chicken without a head and you can make the most of your days off in these beautiful countries.
3. Learn about traffic rules. Slightly different rules apply in Sweden & Norway in some situations than in the Netherlands. By delving into the traffic rules, you prevent that you (unknowingly) commit a traffic violation and / or put yourself in a dangerous situation.

Furthermore, it is wise to book the accommodations in advance. It may be more fun to drive through these countries on the receipt, but you don't want to have to drive around endlessly to find a place to sleep. If you go to Sweden or Norway in the high season, the chance that you have to look for a place to sleep is greatest. It is also possible to camp during your motorcycle trip, but then find out in advance where this is and is not allowed. You cannot pitch your tent everywhere.

As the largest country in Scandinavia you can go on extensive tours in a unique environment. Forests, lakes, nature parks and agricultural areas largely determine the landscape, which also consists of flat parts and rolling hills. Around the Swedish-Norwegian border lies the Scandinavian Highland, where the mountains rise locally to 2100 meters.
