Planning a road trip through Norway? This scenic route goes from Bergen to Trondheim via Voss, Gaularfjellet, Stryn, Geiranger, Trollstigen and Romsdalen.
With a duration of 14 hours, this is far from the fastest route to get from Bergen to Romsdalen, but it’s definitely the most beautiful option. Treat yourself to a spectacular detour through the elongated country and see some of Norway's most beautiful gems along the way.
Bergen is known for its rich history, charming wooden houses and the seven mountains towering over the city. Highlights include Fløien, Ulriken, Fisketorget and Bryggen.

The road to Gaularfjellet takes you on a narrow winding journey through scenic surroundings with beautiful farms and mighty waterfalls. The stretch between Balestrand and Moskog is an official national tourist route.
