Roadtrip through the Norwegian Fjords
If you’ve read my previous posts you know that I recently finished renovating a van in to a rolling home together with Elias. Luckily we both got two weeks of in August and we decided to do a roadtrip through the Norwegian Fjords.
And WOW – we definitely didn’t get disappointed. Norway is so incredible stunning! Behind every corner you turn there is an even bigger mountain, an even bluer ocean or some other breathtaking scenery that you simply can’t get enough of! I can’t believe I’ve never been traveling there before, as it’s only a couple of hours drive from where I live in Sweden. I hope we can go back there with Buster soon :)
Our route, see the map below:

Dinner is served, taco!
Bye Haukland Beach, it was a blast!
One of the most beautiful sunset I’ve ever seen.

Fresh made bread! Straight out of the frying pan.
Time for our first hike! Elias using a bathroom with a view
That’s where we’re going, Hermannsdalstinden (1029 m). The highest peak at Moskenesøya, Lofoten.
The trail was steep and pretty challenging… Don’t slip!
The hike took 6 hrs to the top, and another 5 hrs to get down. 11 hrs roundtrip!
At the top!
Where the fjords meet the ocean.
Can’t get enough of this landscape!
Sunset, rosé, chocolate and good company!
Elias is the master chef, and this morning it was pancakes on the menu!
Reine, a small fishing town.
Time for our 2nd hike, this time to Kvalvika!
Thanks for a beautiful day Kvalvika.
On the way back to Buster!
Pizza on the menu!
Another beautiful sunset!
So cool to be able to cook all this kind of food on a MSR multi fuel kitchen, the pan FRY-BAKE is the shizzle!
Kayaking in Nesna down in Helgeland! Beautiful blue water!
We passed Trolltunga!
And ofc we needed to take a cheesy pic!
In Trondheim we saw this stunning church, Nidaros Cathedral.
Nidaros Cathedral. We also went inside and it was a very nice atmosphere in there. Unfortunately you weren’t allowed to take pictures.
Cinnamon buns! Yummy
Elias is very proud of our baking skills!
Always been on my bucket list to go to Hoddevika, and finally we’re here!
We hope for some surfing in Hoddevika, but, the forecast showed no waves for the upcoming two days. Maybe next time!
Quesa-daily! One quesadillas a day keeps the doctor away. Also, the quickest snack you can make on the road, perfect for lunch.

If I was a sheep, I think I would live here.
Thank you for this amazing trip Elias! Two weeks with chill and adventure! Exactly what I needed before the ski season kicks of!
Next up, the first World Cup in Big Air in El Colorado, Chile! See ya down under!
