The land of Vikings, Teslas, and raw nature with a surprising touch of culture. Get ready for an epic journey through Norway‘s most breathtaking landscapes and cities. Follow our lead and discover the beauty of this country from Hamburg to Stavanger. Whether you’re a nature lover or a city explorer, Norway has something for everyone. We went from Belgium to Germany, and Denmark en drove thru Sweden to get to the beautiful natural Norway. So buckle up, and let’s hit the road!

From Hamburg…

Oh, Hamburg! The city of hip eateries and modern scenery – but wait, there’s more! You can’t possibly leave without a visit to the Reperbahn – the longest hooker street in the world! Yes, sir, you read that right. It’s not just about picturesque views and fancy food, it’s about experiencing the gritty reality of life. So gather your friends or go solo, put on your adventure hat, and head over to the Reperbahn. Who knows? You might even learn a thing or two about life on the streets. Just remember to keep an open mind and watch your pockets! The journey begins! Driving through Germany’s highways and scenic routes to the city with the largest prostitute street in the world: “Reperbahn”.

… to Kopenhagen

Alright, dear travelers, buckle up for our next stop on this road trip adventure! We’re heading to Kopenhagen to check out some of the must-see modern architecture and vibrant nightlife. And of course, we can’t forget about the little mermaid statue – it’s practically mandatory to take a touristy photo with her. But let’s be real, Kopenhagen is also known as a hippie city, so don’t be surprised if you catch a whiff of that oh-so-familiar weed smell. So put on your walking shoes and get ready to explore all that Kopenhagen has to offer! – Crossing the iconic Oresund bridge into Denmark was a very special experience. You start on top of a bridge to drive thru the water. Exploring Kopenhagen’s modern architecture and nightlife. The famous little mermaid statue

Beyond Oslo

Crossing the Oresund Bridge into Denmark is like entering a whole new world. It’s almost as if you’re crossing over to Narnia, but instead of a wardrobe, you need a car or train. Once you’ve had your fill of flat Sweden, Oslo is waiting for you with open arms. Don’t miss out on exploring the hidden gems of Oslofjord, where you can soak up some Viking history at the Viking Ship Museum – trust us, it’s a history lesson like no other. And if you’re feeling fancy, take a stroll on the opera house. Yes, ON! The people here are incredibly friendly and kind – so much so that they even have a “kick the baby” statue in the Vigeland sculpture park. A great attraction for the child-free, like me!

After all that sightseeing, you can enjoy a BBQ in this beautiful green lung (the park) in the middle of this amazing city. I was in love.

Underrated Rjukan

As a traveler, stumbling upon unexpected destinations can be a thrilling experience. One such surprise on the road is Rjukan, a town nestled in the mountains that boasts an interesting history. Rjukan’s winter season makes it unique, which sees the valley deprived of sunlight. To combat this, the town placed mirrors in the mountains to reflect sunlight into the valley. But Rjukan’s history goes beyond this innovative solution. It was also the site of a mission during World War II, a little-known but significant part of the war. Learning about Rjukan’s not-so-well-known wartime history is an eye-opener. Have you ever heard of the heavy water mission? If not, it’s definitely worth a stop in Rjukan to learn more about it.

Bergen

Oh, dear traveler, if you’re looking for a place where nature meets culture, then Bergen is your destination. Not only will you be embraced by colorful Hanseatic buildings and a historic harbor, but you can also take a funicular ride up Mount Floyen for mesmerizing views. And what’s even better? You can go hiking with trolls! Yes, you read that right. I don’t know about you, but I’ve always wanted to hike with mythical creatures. Plus, you can learn about Edvard Grieg, one of Norway’s most famous composers, at the Troldhaugen Museum and visit his beautiful home. Just be warned, the Peer Guint suite will never sound the same again.

Stavanger

Ah, Norway – a paradise for outdoor enthusiasts. And what better way to experience it than hiking to Preikestolen Cliff, one of the country’s most iconic landmarks? But before you get too excited, let me warn you – this isn’t your typical stroll in the park. I nearly survived it myself. You’ll have to channel your inner mountain goat and climb over rocks to get to the top. And trust me, it’s worth it. The view is absolutely stunning, and you’ll even get to see those big fancy cruise ships cruising around in the fjord below. And once you’re done hiking, head over to Stavanger’s charming streets filled with cafes and shops. It’s like a young and hip version of Norway. Happy travels, my adventurous friend!

Leaving Norway

Well, well, well, my dear traveler, it looks like we have come to the end of our journey through Norway. We left by taking a very back to Denmark, to arrive back in Belgium after a long drive. And what can I say? It was an adventure of a lifetime! Raw wilderness, modern attractions, rich culture – Norway really has it all. And let’s not forget about the stunning scenery that left us speechless and Instagram-happy. But alas, all good things must come to an end. So, it’s time for you to grab your car keys, pack your bags, and hit the road to Norway. Trust me, you won’t regret it. Unless, of course, you hate breathtaking landscapes, delicious seafood, and friendly locals. In that case, maybe just stay home and watch Netflix. But for all you adventurous souls out there, Norway is waiting for you
