Testing the Garmin VIRB Ultra 30 again, this time in the tunnel

First proper test of the VIRB in the car

Preparing for the 2017 vacation on the road in Norway.

Just for fun 😉

The video is recorded at Rennesøy in Rogaland, Norway.

 


The parish of Rennesøy was established as a municipality on 1 January 1838.

On 1 July 1884, the municipality was split in two with the islands of Mosterøy, Klosterøy, Fjøløy, Kvitsøy, and the western part of Åmøy forming the new municipality of Mosterøy, and the islands of Rennesøy and Brimse remained as Rennesøy municipality. This split left Rennesøy with 1,092 residents, less than half of its previous population. The island of Kvitsøy later became an independent municipality of its own.

On 1 July 1918, the Hanasand area of the neighboring municipality of Finnøy (population: 72) that was located on the island of Rennesøy was transferred to Rennesøy municipality.

On 1 January 1965 a series of municipality mergers took place across the whole country as a result of the work of the Schei Committee. On that date, the municipality of Mosterøy was merged back into Rennesøy. Prior to the merger, Rennesøy had 1,370 residents.

No. 8 Atlanterhavsvegen – “On the way to Nordkapp”

The road looks more spectacular in bad weather, on this sunny day it was just ok.

The summer of 2015 me and my daughter decided to drive from Stavanger in Norway, and all the way up to Nordkapp.

To make the trip “complete”, after visiting Nordkapp we also drove all the way down to Lindesnes in the south.

The trip was done with our family car, the Volvo V40 R Design 1,6 diesel.


This is video number 8 of 14 from our road trip back in 2015.
“Norge på langs”   –   “Norway lengthwise”

KM in total was 6080, the road trip took 12 days.

#Nordkapp


Situated in Norway, The Atlantic Road (in Norwegian called Atlanterhavsveien or Atlanterhavsvegen) is a part of Norwegian national road 64 (Rv 64).

It is close to the cities Molde and Kristiansund in the modest part of the Norwegian coastline. It is ranked first on The Guardian’s list of the world’s best road trips!

This fantastic and spectacular road is a very popular tourist attraction. Both the local population and tourist visitors frequently use the road to go fishing for cod and other fish directly from the bridges. One of the bridges is special designed for fishing.

No. 7 Trollstigen – On the way to Nordkapp

National Tourist Route Geiranger-Trollstigen runs from Langevatn to Strynefjellet and Sogge Bru in Romsdalen, a total distance of 104 km (Road 63).

The summer of 2015 me and my daughter decided to drive from Stavanger in Norway, and all the way up to Nordkapp.

To make the trip “complete”, after visiting Nordkapp we also drove all the way down to Lindesnes in the south.

The trip was done with our family car, the Volvo V40 R Design 1,6 diesel.

The drive along Trollstigen is undoubtedly more dramatic than most people are used to, but what is special about driving in Norway is that in fact people live just about everywhere. Even on the narrowest mountain ledge or small crag there will be a house. We are bound to the landscape and the natural surroundings through settlements that have offered us a livelihood throughout history. Geiranger-Trollstigen offers numerous highlights, and the eleven hairpin bends of Trollstigen as well as the view from Ørnesvingen down to the Geirangerfjord may set your pulse racing. Lush valleys, sheltered strawberry-growing areas, precipitous mountains and vantage points guaranteed to make you dizzy offer some of Norway’s most scenic views.

History

For several centuries the road was an important transport artery between Valldal and Åndalsnes, first as a path and then as a bridleway, until construction of the Trollstigvegen road started up in 1916. Parts of the original pack horse track are still visible and passable on foot. It’s an exciting alternative for everyone who would like to experience the road as it was in days of old.

Experiences

You will find some of the most sensational installations we have constructed on this stretch. Here, viewing points such as Ørnesvingen, Gudbrandsjuvet gorge and Flydalsjuvet gorge let you explore the natural surroundings in a unique manner. Taking the ferry on the Geirangerfjord will bring you up close to the well-known waterfalls of Dei Sju Systre, Friaren and Brudesløret while at the same time you will experience the most renowned fjord in the world – the Geirangerfjord, which is on UNESCO’s World Heritage List.

No. 6 – Gamle Strynefjellsvei – Road trip to Nordkapp

A hidden gem, this old touristic route.
Coming From Stryn on the FV 15, take the 258. It is indicated, but you have to pay attention.

We have now gone through several of the historical roads this year. The Old Stryn Mountain road is a beautiful experience, traces of winter left, small mountain lakes with turquoise water, a narrow road stripped of green nature and adorned with stones that takes your breath away. We entered the road from the country of Oppland and drove towards Stryn, as one starts approaching the end of the road and descending, the majestic views of the mountain surrounding Stryn appear in front of your eyes, what follows is nothing less than magnificent, luscious and ever striking nature…

A true perfect Norwegian jewel among the crown nature jewels this country has.

Video number 4 is from a place in Norway named “Olden”.

PS: Video number 3 was so “boring” that I left it alone on YouTube ?

Holsen is a place so small that it is almost impossible to find any information about it. The only information I found was on Wikipedia, in Norwegian …

 

Holsen er en bygd i Førde kommune i Sogn og Fjordane. Sentralt i bygden ligger Holsavatnet og bygden omkranser dette. Turistveien Rv 13 mellom Moskog og Balestrand går igjennom bygden, og følger langs Holsavatnet sin nordside. Veien går videre over Rørvikfjellet mot bygdene Haukedalen og Viksdalen, fjellovergangen er med sin flotte utsikt blitt en turistattraksjon. Ved øverste enden av vannet ligger Holsen kirke og Holsen skule.
