Road tripping is the best, as it allows for flexibility whenever we want. That also makes it harder to have a set itinerary, but here is the plan for the first trip leg.

 

15.May: Stavanger/Finnøy

Feel like arriving in Norway a few days before the trip start? No problem? You can stay for free at my parents house and we can go fishing in our boat and prepare for the road trip together. If you are up for a proper hike (8hrs) I can take you to Trolltunga. In the evenings I will prepare food for you so you can try some Norwegian dishes at my home.

As soon as you have your flight booked let me know so that I can pick you up from the airport.

Accommodation: large house where everyone will get their own bed. Opt for camping on the lawn if you want to try out the camping gear before start.

 

16.May: Hiking the Pulpit Rock

Today we will drive to Stavanger and then take the ferry over to Tau to drive to the famous Pulpit Rock. I have been working as a professional hiking guide here and know the trails in and out. If you would rather want to spend the day exploring Stavanger I would recommend seeing the oil museum, the canning museum, the color street or an easier hike to Dalsnuten.

Accommodation: large house where everyone will get their own bed. Opt for camping on the lawn if you want to try out the camping gear before start.

 

17.May: Stavanger/Finnøy

Today is the national day of Norway, so we will be celebrating in Stavanger and then take the MS Stavangerfjord ferry at 20.00. The ferry crossing is an interesting experience to see how Norwegians get drunk, go shopping for cheap liquor and take the same ferry back the next day.

Accommodation: We will sleep on the included ferry taking us from Norway to Denmark.
