Sogndal, Sognefjellsvegen, Galdhøpiggen to Lillehammer
Let us start in Sogndal, where there is an airport.
We spend one night in Norway`s oldest Hotel situated by the shore of Lusterfjorden, one of the arms of the remarkable Sognefjord.
We also suggest, while we`re here, to visit Urnes Stave Church.
The next day we ride to Turtagrø and spend the night there, almost at the top of Norway. From here we continue to the top and enjoy the view of the glaciers Fanaråken and Smørstadbreen.
We spend the next night at the foot of Galdhøpiggen before we hike the next day to the top.
Galdhøpiggen is the highest mountain in Norway and in fact also in Northern Europe, reaching 2469 meters above sealevel.
