Our camp spot for the night was right next to the road, but behind some trees and a little bit down a hill. In the little paradise we found, we had our own beach and view to wake up to. Fresh air and freshly brewed coffee in the morning is an unbeatable combination!
The day started out biking by the fjord. It was truly stunning. Small, fishing scenes unfolded in front of us and life was easy.
A little further on, it was time for climbing! Up and down and up and down. Hills you do not even think about when driving become very apparent on a bike! The grand prize of biking up hills are the fantastic views you get on the top. We would bike uphill for several kilometres, then downhill for a long time. Our maximum speed to date is 54 km/h. However, we are not going for speed records. You do not want to collide with a moose or a reindeer!
This was the most beautiful bike day yet. It is hard to describe the beauty with words. Just like we were in awe of the nature in Alaska, we get the same grand feeling here.
We awarded ourselves a cabin for the night at Fosselv Camping. We were finally able to shower and do our laundry then had a great sunny night’s sleep.
Upwards and onwards – Another beautiful day is waiting to be seized!
