If you miss travelling: Road trip through the fjords of Norway

By PierreL | My Work | 7 May 2020


In July 2018, my wife and I went on a one week road trip in Norway and completely fell in love with the place. It was our honeymoon, and we enjoyed every second of it.

The plan was simple: we got plane tickets, we rented a car, and that was it, we figured everything out while being there, and let me tell you, even just driving around Norway makes the trip worth it. Every inch of the country is beautiful. We've actually started learning Norwegian after than, as we're considering moving there some day, that's how much we loved it.

And yet, this trip could've ended in a very bad way... On our second to last day, as we were driving down towards Oslo to get closer to the airport, I fell asleep at the wheel and drove into a ditch/field (tiring week after an exhausting 2 months of my life, I didn't realize I had no strength left in me...). Fortunately, we were both unharmed, but the car was left unusable and we had to finish the trip by train.

Our route was fairly simple, we landed in Oslo and started driving towards Bergen, in the West, to drive through the land of the fjords. Amazement was waiting for us at every corner.

From there, we started going North, then East on the scenic road 55, an unforgettable trip through the snowy mountains and glaciers of the area.

We then headed North towards Trondheim, but didn't stay there as we wanted to stay close to nature and not see any city.

Trondheim was the northernmost point we reached, and then started going South towards Oslo, and you know the rest.

 

Of course, as a videographer, I filmed almost every second of it, and here is the resulting video of the trip I want to share with y'all, enjoy!
