Autumn road trip
We reached the Nigardsbreen glacier via the longest tunnel in Europe, the Lærdalstunnel (25 km). Afterwards we drove to Jotunheimen, where unfortunately we had too much fog to do a decent hike. So we went to Dovrefjell-Sunndalsfjella National Park to look for the last free-ranging musk oxen in Europe. There are around 300 animals left in Europe...
After Dovrefjell-Sunndalsfjella National Park, our little adventure took us on a steep but quite pleasant hike to the Troll Church. A waterfall in the middle of a small cave -spectacular! Afterwards, relaxing was on the agenda and so we enjoyed the beautiful beach of Grotlesanden (many thanks to Nordlandblog for the good tip!), before we took a detour to the Kannesteinen and then a steep hike to the Hornelen...
We continued to the colourful facades of the narrow wooden houses in Bergen/Bryggen, which have been restored after a large fire and their construction adapted to the earlier houses. The next day we passed beautiful waterfalls (Steinsdalsfossen) to our next highlight - The Trolltunga (Troll Tongue). At 5am, this 14km hike took us to the incredible 10-metre rocky outcrop. In 10 days we experienced a lot and must conclude that COVID-19 was our great luck, because we were almost alone on all our activities.
