Norwegian Travels – Stops on Two National Tourist Routes & Innerdalen

After our week on the west coast of Norway this past summer, we headed home to Oslo. We drove along one of the National Tourist Routes that goes from Kårvåg (near Kristiansund) to Bud, which includes the tourist magnent The Atlantic Ocean Road. Next, we had a hike in a lovely valley (on an unseasonably hot day by Norwegian standards) called Innerdalen. Finally, we travelled and stopped along another of the National Tourist Routes, highway 27 in Rondane along the Blue Mountains from Folldal to Muen.

  1. Wow, your photos look absolutely amazing and so does Norway – is there anything more beautiful than never ending mountain peaks to marvel at? Norway is such a beautiful place to explore, can’t believe I never made an effort to visit while living in Latvia. Thanks for sharing and safe travels 😀 Aiva
