9 Day Road trip (Trondheim-Bergen)

Hello travelers!

Last June, we finished our 2 weeks Norwegian trip. One part of this journey was a road trip from Trondheim to Bergen, making some strategic stop in places we want to do some hikes or we want to see some attractions. Some here is all the info, including our accommodation, meals, and budget.

If you want to see what we ate on the trip, check our youtube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VV21stN7iZ0

Trondheim to Eide, vía Atlantic Ocean Road

We rented the car at Trondheim Airport. From there took us around 5 hours to get to Eide, where we were going to spend the night. As the main objective of this stop was to pass through the Atlantic Ocean Road, we first put on our GPS a supermarket in Kristiansund. So, after there, we had to get the popular road to get to our destination. This route has a ferry that cost around 15 euros for the car and an extra passenger.

Eide to Stranda, vía Trollstingen

After having a local breakfast at our Airbnb (Some barley porridge), we headed the road to Trollstingen. We were super lucky that the road was already open (it’s closed until the beginning of summer). The road by itself is beautiful and somehow magical. We reached the parking spot on the top, and from there we did some short hikes (Around 1 hour, since there was still some snow on the top). We had lunch here, and then we continue our journey to Stranda. where we spend two nights.

Stranda was a strategic stop for two reasons: the amazing Airbnb that was like staying with friends, plus the proximity to Geirangerfjord and other hiking trails. The next day, we drive until Hellesylt, where we took the tourist ferry to Geiranger. It is cheaper to get on the ferry without the car, it was around 93 euros return ticket. I think it is expensive but completely worthy since you can see the waterfall and learn some story behind the fjord. The ride is about 1 hour each way, so as we did it early, we had the whole afternoon to do a hike around Stranda.

Our Airbnb host recommended a hike near her place. Just a few minutes away by car we reached Livarden starting point. This hike is around 10km up and the view is outstanding, from here you can see have a spectacular view of the connection between Geirangerfjord and Tafjord, resulting in a big river that ended up in the ocean.

Stranda to Vikøyri, Lovatnet Lake stop

The following day, we started our long drive to Vikøyri. It was around five hours of driving since we want to get to know Lovatnet lake. We had a lovely lunch in front of the lake. This road has many types of breathtaking sceneries, as the view of the fjord from the mountain.

We decided to sleep at Vikøyri due to the convenient location, nothing more. But for our surprise, there is an old Stave Church called Hopperstad stavkyrkje. The structure is amazing and the whole ambiance made me feel I was in a mystical place. We arrived late, so we couldn’t get inside, so I will have to return to check it out.

Vikøyri to Segelgjerd, Viking village stop

Our next stop was Segelgjerd, a town near Trolltunga. To get there the trip is around 2 hours, but it took us more than because we want to visit the Viking village at Gudvangen. The entrance ticket is around 20 euros each adult and includes a small tour with some explanations on the Viking life. It was nice to see that the people working there actually live there, only for the 3 or months that the village is open. Apparently, there is a nice summer Festival in July, so visit around those days to have the full Viking experience.

The rest of the road was agreeable, with some nice views and tiny towns. Once we got to Segelgjerd, we were impressed by the landscape. Apart from Trolltunga, the surrounders are beautiful and you can have a nice view from the fjord along the highway. We were going to stay here because we bolled a two-day tour to climb Trolltunga the next morning.

Our Trolltunga experience was completely different from what we thought was going to be. Especially because we didn’t have the best weather, it was snowing at the end of May, so our equipped wasn’t the appropriate one but we survive! Luckily, besides the snow and some clouds, we achieve to saw the troll tongue (Trolltunga).

We booked a tour with Trolltunga adventures, it included the accommodation on tents on the top, all the meals, and local hiking snacks. I think it was worthy, so if you want the whole Norwegian hiking experience you should check them out!

Segelgjerd to Øystese

Since our two-days Trolltunga experience finished around 2 pm, we chose a near town where to spend that night closed to Hardangerfjord. This town was Øystese, near the ferry stop and the intersection for Bergen.

The view from this little town is amazing and our Airbnb was cozy and convenient. We just relaxed after all the walking and prepare for the following day drive.

Øystese to Bergen, via scenic route 49 & 48

This scenic route was recommended by our Airbnb hosts. It took us one hour more to reach Bergen but it was worthy. Although it was raining that day, we appreciated the numerous waterfalls, tunnels, and islands. We left the car at Bergen so that concludes our road trip.

Norway is an enormous country that we could see only a small part of it. Definitely, it has so many things to see and it is a great place to do any kind of outdoors activities.

This small road trip gave us a taste of the most popular attractions on the road, so if you want to replicate this trip let me know and tag us on Instagram.

Happy traveling!
