Oslo to Bergen: Aurland


After a night in Ryfoss, we continued on to Aurland. The girls felt like the one night stay was too quick and we aren’t in any rush, so we decided to stay two nights in Aurland. And I’m so glad we did! We found another idyllic campsite, and the Aurlandsfjord is absolutely breathtaking. But first, our drive. More gorgeous scenery and a trip through the world’s longest road tunnel: Lærdal tunnel, 24.5 km.

This campground had a stunning view! And a really good feel to it.

On Wednesday evening we drove up to the famous Stegastein lookout point and it did not disappoint. We were just in awe of the beauty.

The girls requested a lazy day on Thursday, so I took advantage of the washer and dryer, stocked up at the grocery store and even got to read my magazine all the way through (thanks, Sages!). We even did as little baking–making some mini donuts for an afternoon snack as part of a competition for Steffen’s work.

Then in the late afternoon, the girls and I ventured down to town where there was a swimming hole, sunshine and another wonderful view. We played on the grass, dipped our toes in the water and read together. It was a nice and relaxing day!
