Dalsnibba is often covered by snow even in the summer. The Norwegian County Road 63 passes along the south side of the mountain, and from that road, there is a private toll… Continue reading Dalsnibba

In Åndalsnes we got the new gondola up to the top of the mountain. It opened this year on the 28th of may. It was really great both going up and down and soaking in the views at the top.

And as we waited for the new tourist attraction to open in the morning, we sat down for a cup of coffee… Continue reading Åndalsnes
