A Road Trip to Sweden and Norway / Norway Day 4
I spent just over two weeks road tripping through Sweden and Norway with my dad and mum (who joined for the second part) in late summer/early autumn. Scandinavia has always been one of my favourite parts in the world. I’ve spent summers in Sweden as a child, so going back now brought back some beautiful childhood memories. I love the Swedish woods, the cute colourful wooden houses, the lakes, the mellow atmosphere and sense of air.
It was my first time in Norway. I visited without any expectations at all, and was blown away, even just by the small part that we saw. I’ll note which places we visited and stopped at in each post. I hope you’ll enjoy the photos, get inspired to plan your own trip to Scandinavia, and discover some beautiful places of your own.
This was the last part of our road trip, making our way back from Kvanndal to Oslo, so I could get my flight back to Melbourne. Waking up right next to waterfalls coming down the mountain was so special. Literally the first thing I saw when I looked out the window at the camp ground that morning, was water falling down the steep mountain side. It was another stunning bit of scenery, driving back via my favourite high mountain plateau now properly covered in snow (it must have been snowing the day before as the landscape looked way whiter than on our way from Oslo to Bergen). The last part, passing Gol and all the other small towns along the way, was just as beautiful, with lots more greenery, yellow autumn trees and blue waters flowing next to us almost all along the way. Such a beautiful drive.
