For the third time I was ready to start my lil’ solo bicycle tour after finishing my seasonal summer work in Tafjord, Norway. This year I planned to bicycle from Tafjord to Östersund in Sweden. I had a final date to keep to be home, but to avoid stressing (after all this was my little vacation this year) I started wheeling with an open mind an no rigid plan to follow.
On the road I think my personal highlights was once again to be back in lovely Åndalsnes (where my father came from), downhill Trollstigen and climbing the new Romsdalsstigen Via Ferrata , I also had the pleasure to try the new Dovre bicycle route over Dovre mountain range, tested out my good fortune in fishing in Vålåsjøen lake and hiking Mehøe. An evening in beautiful Røros museum area and then somehow ended up in a very nice fish-camp in Storsjön, Sweden.
I met a lot of nice people, got lots of good memories, and would like to share my map and photos for travel inspiration to others who want to do a similar route. And, don’t be afraid to ask if you have a question regarding this.
I have created this map on Google including my travel photos and some travel information/advice:
