Amazing drive around! Rent a car with GPS for sure. Lots of fun tunnels, lots of bridges, sometimes sheep on the road. We stayed in Leknes, I think that's a great central place, seems to have more than one restaurant and gas stations. Can be...More

I would suggest you get to Trondheim by plane and then look at RometoRio on your browser. It will give you all the alternatives. We found it very reliable getting around Norway.
