Norway - Eagle Road, steep and fun to ride

Wanted to show you one of the parts, of one of our rides this year to the Western parts of Norway. Fun to ride and great view also from Pia the Pillions seat (hubby named me)

Watch it on youtube: https://youtu.be/rStGRSZ3I8Q

Ørnevegen/Eagle Road – is the name given to the steepest stretch of road up the mountain side from Geiranger towards Eidsdal.
The road swings through 11 hairpin bends up from the Geirangerfjord and to the highest point on the stretch, 620 metres above sea level. The road was officially opened on 15th September 1955 and gave the village of Geiranger year-round road access.

Viewpoint at Eagle Road:

It's actually a fjord, a quite long one, but very beautiful

I had a Fjord once. A Fjord Capri. The lake look's lovely.
Norway is on my list (a long list ) of places I must visit before I die.
When ever I see picture's of Norway I always think the place look's stunning.
More pic's please!!! But not of any Fjord capri's,Cortina's or other rusty wreck's!

If the local ferry ever kick's off again with trip's,I will be on board!!

Hope the ferry plans will happend, but it is possible to take a ferry now also.
There is a little known ferry for trucks that will take som bikes, but sadly I have no links, can't remember what company.
Anyhow, the Norwegian Krone is wery weak now, so this would be a good time to visit

Im sure I heard a rumour that a ferry service was going to start in Sunderland in the UK going back and forth to Norway. This could again if it happened be a fantastic way to get me to Norway.
