    Can't go far wrong seeing some of the best bits of Norway on these roads!

    Done most of them, some even a couple of times.

    Excellent choices and information about the area, as ever, from the Norwegian Tourist Board.

    Chap from the ABR forum (Abr worthy /camp site owner Paul Holroyd ) tried in Sept a few years back , and got nowhere even close with the ice that descends at the back end of the summer
    Normal ,in an odd sort of way

    I'm limited by when I can get the time off work. Plan is to ride up through Sweden and Finland in the first week of September then work south down the west coast of Norway. Maybe cutting it fine with the weather but its all I've got so got to run with it.

    ISBN-10: 1873756739
    ISBN-13: 978-1873756737
