Road trip Gothenburg-Oslo-Bergen-Stavanger-Kristiansand-Oslo

We (2) are taking European delivery up our new Volvo in early april and spending 2 weeks driving western Norway. We have never been to Europe. Our likes are hiking, nature, and site seeing. Because it is early April can we safely wing it by exploring and finding lodging where ever we land?

Also what should we not miss along the way.

You might want to ask this question in the Norwegian forum to get more answers. Gothenburg-Oslo take approx 3,5h along E6. Some parts are prettier than others. Make sure that you drive along the harbour into Oslo.

Time Bergen to Olso varies, depending on which road. Some sights along the way are Vøringsfossen, 182 m waterfall and the bridge Fyksesundbrua. You will have to go south of, north of or across Hardangervidda. In early April there might be weather (snow) to take in to account - the Norwegian forum will know.

Thanks for the info. We are thinking driving up the west coast of Sweden and staying somewhere cute south of Oslo for day one. Any ideas on places?

Since it’s off-season (except around Easter) a lot of restaurants will only be open during the weekends. Check out some of the previous threads. Irecommend a visit to Tanum and the UNESCO heritage site with rock carvings. There are a couple of nice places to stay in the are, Tanums Gästgiveri for example.

Grebbestad is also nice.
