Wink Catalan girl & Swiss GS visit the Vikings

Yeah!

Heidi (my GS) and I are leaving tomorrow!!!

We are based in Basel (North of Switzerland) and we have decided to spend our 2,5 weeks of holidays visiting Norway.

Our main goals for this trip are enjoying the Norwegian landscapes, seeing Musk oxes and trying to spot some White-tailed Eagles... Reaching Knivskjelloden (the real North Cape) would be a plus, but it's not a priority for us. :)

Tomorrow afternoon I'm going to Lörrach (Germany) where I'm loading Heidi into a train that will bring us to Hamburg.

This is the first time I'm travelling by train with a motorbike. I wanted to make the most of this 2,5 weeks and, since the train is travelling during the night, it's a great way of getting extra time in Norway! And... I will skip 900Km of boring German motorway!

If everything happens as scheduled, Saturday morning I'll be in Hamburg and, from there, I'll be heading to Hirtshals (Northern coast of Denmark), where I want to take the late afternoon ferry to Kristiansand (Southern coast of Norway). Let's see how everything goes...

I'll try to keep you posted during the trip! In case I can't, this is the link to a blog I've created to keep my friends updated:

And last but not least, a pic of the team :



Cheers,

Marta.

My grandmother is a Norwegian immigrant. While I haven't had the chance yet, I'd love to visit at some point and see where my family is from. Looking forward to seeing your pictures

The very best of luck! I'm sure you'll adore Norway. I've done it twice and I'm itching to do it a third time. Maybe next year. Actually, I'm doing Spain at the end of July. You might PM me some recommended routes if you get a chance.

Watch those speed limits in Norway. Police in Norway have absolutely NO sense of humor!

Would that I could ride enough there to say "I will skip 900Km of boring German motorway!"
Tuned in of course.

Being a a native Norwegian, I know you'll have a good time. Beautiful country to ride in. But,,,,it is disgustingly expensive, so bring a lot of cash. Do you plan to go all the way to Nordkapp?
