About this region
Telemark [ˈtêːləmɑrk] (listen) is a traditional region, a former county and a current electoral district in Norway. In 2020, Telemark merged with the former county of Vestfold to form the county of Vestfold og Telemark. Telemark borders the traditional regions and former counties of Vestfold, Buskerud, Hordaland, Rogaland and Aust-Agder. The various geographic sub-regions of Telemark have distinct cultural traditions in terms of dialect, music, clothing, handcrafts, food, and architecture. The name Telemark means the "mark of the Thelir", the ancient North Germanic tribe that inhabited what is now known as Upper Telemark in the Migration Period and the Viking Age. In the Middle Ages, the agricultural society of Upper Telemark was considered the most violent region of Norway. Today, half of the buildings from medieval times in Norway are located here. The dialects spoken in Upper Telemark also retain more elements of Old Norse than those spoken elsewhere in the country. Upper Telemark is also known as the birthplace of skiing.The southern part of Telemark, Grenland, is more urban and influenced by trade with the Low Countries, northern Germany, Denmark and the British Isles. Telemark has been one of Norway's most important industrial regions for centuries, marked in particular by the Norske Skog Union paper mills in Grenland and the Norsk Hydro heavy water and fertilizer production in Upper Telemark.

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.

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.

Tolls must be paid on a large number of roads 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.

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.
