TRIP EIGHTJoin us on an epic road trip in the North of Norway
The drive along the Ryfylke National Tourist Route is a trip full of contrasts. Here you will encounter high barren mountains, green and lush hillsides, sheer mountainsides and deep fjords. The Saudafjellet mountain displays special natural characteristics. It is rugged, brutal and unyielding. At the Svandalfossen waterfall you can walk up the steps and really feel the force of the rushing water and the might of the cascade. At the southern point of this road you will find Lysefjorden. This fjord is perhaps most enchanting when dark clouds hover above, letting out only a handful of rays of Sunlight.
There are lots of opportunities on the way to make short detours and to take a break from driving, whether you are keen to find out more about Sauda’s industrial history or just want to explore one of the lovely little shore villages such as Sand.
It’s no secret that Hardanger is like a giant picture postcard and almost everywhere you look you will feast your eyes on thundering waterfalls or fruit trees in bloom. Dramatic roads run through dramatic scenery and there is a wealth of variation to absorb. The road may follow a shelf along a steep-sided valley or it might literally pass through apple orchards; perhaps it is this closeness that is the unique quality of the stretch. The perfect trip on this stretch would be to drive one way in springtime at the height of the fruit blossoming season, stop to fish in the Hardangerfjord and then return when fruit picking is underway in late summer. Then Hardanger will reveal its unique aspects that change with the season, who all are equally worth exploring.

Before we started our moving hostel project, we travelled around the world and one of the countries we explored was Noway and especially the region around Bergen, because Vidar (who helped built the bus) is so lucky to have grown up in this beautiful part of the world. The landscapes constantly change with each couple kilometers you drive and it is literally is too magnificent for words. The most important reason why you should come on any of our trips is the fact that this is the best way to meet similar minded people and the easiest way to get to know people from all over the world. They’ll become connections for life thanks to the trip you experience together. Something we can all benefit from these days!
