If you are taking the shortest route via E136 and E6 then Lillehammer is the only place I'd describe as a nice town. You don't say when you are travelling, but you might consider diverting a little bit and staying in a mountain hotel. www.oigardseter.no is in the Rondane mountains above Otta. Or maybe consider diverting on to road 51 and drive over the Valdresflya road through the Jotunheim mountains for a much more scenic journey. www.hindseter.no would be a lovely place to stay on this route.

The standard route is E136 + E6, Lillehammer is a nice town. A detour via roads 29 and 27 is interesting and you can stay overnight at Dovre/Hjerkinn or Venabu.




If you travel via Geiranger-Lom-Fagernes (more interesting route IMO), I would say Lom is an OK place to stop, Fagernes too. These are all villages as there no towns really.

Thank you so much will def. follow up on all suggestions and of course want to take most scenic route. Also we are watching the tv series Lillehammer in Australia, and love it so would be a novelty to go there!
