Orignal route by Thomas Falck Østli

Ferry Kiel - Oslo
This is the first day ride of Thomas Falck Østli, part of a longer trip. This is a beautiful route from Oslo to Geiranger. While driving the route you enjoy impressive landscapes and views. You drive long distances in Norway without gas stations and restaurants, keep this in mind before you start driving. The route includes a number of gas stations and possible stops at restaurants. Take a few bottles of water with you and possibly top up when you stop to refuel.

To spend the night cheaply, it is wise to bring a tent. You can camp anywhere for free, except on land that is private property or in places with a prohibition sign. If you do not want to camp, cabins on campsites are a cheap solution. For safety's sake, however, bring a tent with you.

This route starts in Oslo, where the ferry from Kiel arrives. The end point is in Geiranger, where there are several campsites and hotels to spend the night. To eat and drink along the way, you can bring something yourself. You can also stop at Valdresporten Cafeteria or Grotli Høyfjellshotel for example. There are also options for a coffee break or lunch break at restaurants in the towns of Fagernes, Beitostølen or Lom.

The road to Dalsnibba (the highest European fjord view from the road, 1500 m) is usually open from May to October. The opening times may vary slightly depending on the weather conditions. Toll must be paid on this road. It is also possible to skip this part of the route and continue to the end point.

About this region
Oslo ( OZ-loh, also US: OSS-loh, locally [ˈʊ̂ʂlʊ] (listen), rarely [ˈʊ̂slʊ, ˈʊ̀ʂlʊ]) is the capital and most populous city of Norway. It constitutes both a county and a municipality. During the Viking Age the area was part of Viken, the northernmost Danish province. Oslo was founded as a city at the end of the Viking Age in the year 1040 under the name Ánslo, and established as a kaupstad or trading place in 1048 by Harald Hardrada. The city was elevated to a bishopric in 1070 and a capital under Haakon V of Norway around 1300. Personal unions with Denmark from 1397 to 1523 and again from 1536 to 1814 reduced its influence. After being destroyed by a fire in 1624, during the reign of King Christian IV, a new city was built closer to Akershus Fortress and named Christiania in the king's honour. It was established as a municipality (formannskapsdistrikt) on 1 January 1838. The city functioned as the capital of Norway during the 1814–1905 union between Sweden and Norway. From 1877, the city's name was spelled Kristiania in government usage, a spelling that was adopted by the municipal authorities only in 1897. In 1925 the city, after incorporating the village retaining its former name, was renamed Oslo. In 1948 Oslo merged with Aker, a municipality which surrounded the capital and which was 27 times larger, thus creating the modern, vastly enlarged Oslo municipality. Oslo is the economic and governmental centre of Norway. The city is also a hub of Norwegian trade, banking, industry and shipping. It is an important centre for maritime industries and maritime trade in Europe. The city is home to many companies within the maritime sector, some of which are among the world's largest shipping companies, shipbrokers and maritime insurance brokers. Oslo is a pilot city of the Council of Europe and the European Commission intercultural cities programme. Oslo is considered a global city and was ranked "Beta World City" in studies carried out by the Globalization and World Cities Study Group and Network in 2008. It was ranked number one in terms of quality of life among European large cities in the European Cities of the Future 2012 report by fDi magazine. A survey conducted by ECA International in 2011 placed Oslo as the second most expensive city in the world for living expenses after Tokyo. In 2013 Oslo tied with the Australian city of Melbourne as the fourth most expensive city in the world, according to the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU)'s Worldwide Cost of Living study. Oslo was ranked as the 24th most liveable city in the world by Monocle magazine.As of 27 February 2020, the municipality of Oslo had a population of 693,491, while the population of the city's urban area of 4 November 2019 was 1,019,513. The metropolitan area had an estimated population of 1.71 million. The population was increasing at record rates during the early 2000s, making it the fastest growing major city in Europe at the time. This growth stems for the most part from international immigration and related high birth rates, but also from intra-national migration. The immigrant population in the city is growing somewhat faster than the Norwegian population, and in the city proper this is now more than 25% of the total population if immigrant parents are included.
