Cool2 28 days Belgium-Nordkapp

Hi all,

25 june will be the start of a 28 day trip true scandinavia together with 2 of my friends. We have been planning this trip some months now, and d-day draws closer each day... a few more nights. About the journey, the rough id is to keep a good tempo until we're past the border of Finland. Where we'll try to do lots of gravel and maybe slack off a day or 2, untill we reach the Nordkapp. Where we will meet up with our friend Pia, whom also be traveling norway with a big yellow bus. once we're chat up we will be traveling down again, spending a day on Senja and on to the Lofoten. where we will take the ferry Sorvagen - Bodo. From where we will crawl down again enjoing the scenery.
It will be mostley wildcamping, so any suggestions on where to go, must see or buy food/drinks etc would be much appreciated.

A rough id of the route


the bit more detailed one:
https://maps.google.be/maps/ms?msid=...981e3377&msa=0
I'm guessing we will be doing about 9000km

The merry lot who will go on this endeavour:


The bikes we will be using are:
2x xt660z and a f650gs

We will try to catch some wifi rays so we can keep you guys up to date

In the route i marked, we will be taking the E6 in norway, but i prefer the 17 with the ferrys depending on what day we get there...

We will go along road E45 up to Nordkapp then down to Lofoten.
Then the ferry to Bodo and down along road RV17 in Norway.

I´ll look out after you guys, we´re riding two up on an R1200GS -13.

Good luck!

Have a safe trip. I'll be following along wherever you go and by the looks of it, you'll be in good shape mechanically. I wish I could say that but I do know how to put gas in at most pumps! Good luck!

Hello. That sounds like a great tripp.

Through Sweden intead of going along the coast on the highway. I would recomend the so called "inlandsvägen"
Google it and you' l see what i mean. (I can not upload pics at the moment)

Sure the coastline is nice but the road and traffic isn't that much fun.

Look it up and decide for your self.

Have a nice trip.

Yes, "Inlandsvägen" E45 is what we will be riding up to the North.

Thanks! I think we might go for a quick change of plans! Looking at the pictures 'round the E45 it surely seems interesting!

You will have a blast! Spare lots of time for the Norwegian coast and the islands. I especially enjoyed the boat trip from Bodo to Rost and then further on to the bird islands. Have a look here: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=597134
