Loved it! Saw some familiar places.. looks like it was close to being a bit too early on some of the mountain passes though! Thanks for sharing!

Btw, does your friend's rear light pulsate, or is it just the video?

Hi Froden

Some of the higher passes were still closed, although we tried to get over some. The pulsating light is just down to the video recording.

I certainly enjoyed it, thanks! I fell in love with Norway at my 1st trip. Fantastic nature, great hikes. The only drawback are the roads, I found it hard to find unpaved ones.

As someone else said, you were there early in the season, not many mosquitos this time of the year I guess?

We found plenty of off road trails (mostly by taking wrong turns!). My mosqito hat went to waste.

Riding around Norway for 2 weeks and not a single bug splat on my visor

Great Report!

Thanks for sharing. I did five days in Norway last summer. Awesome! Any chance you could list the songs in the video? Really enjoyed the music too!
