Driving Oslo - Bergen - Oslo: June 2014

Hi experts. I have four days/three nights allocated for this part of my northern adventures for next year. I have a rental car and driving long distance is not a problem (I'll be doing a total of around 6,000km on this vacation). My questions are:

1/ What is the road like between Oslo and Bergen in June, and does Google maps tell the truth that it is easily drivable in a day?.

2/ is the drive worth it and is there decent scenery along the way

3/ Given the obvious one day each way driving, what are the recommended use of my two full days in Bergen

Cheers

Pat

1) You can see road quality on Google Maps (road pictures). Google Maps give you exact kilometers, but driving time is 10-30 % on the optimistic side. You can calculate 1 min pr 1 kilometer for tourist driving.

2) Roads Oslo - Bergen offers Norway's famous fjord scenery and more such as cultural heritage. On a summer day all the drive is more or less scenic, some parts the best. Take an alternate rout back, for instance E16 or road 7.

Hi,

Another suggestion is the Hardangervidda road (Rv. 40) which takes you through the scenic mountain plateau, past the incredible Vøringsfossen and along the Hardanger fjord. You should plan some extra time for stops, plus the road condition is not the best.

Bergen has plenty to offer during summer, I recommend you have a good look at http://www.visitbergen.com.

Hardangervidda is road 7, but connection to Drammen and Sandefjord is possible via road 40.
