    Although our way was shown as 2 hours going and 2 hours returning, around 4 hours trip; we climbed down the way, which we went up around 1,5 hours, in around 1 hour; and spent around 1 hour on the hill.

    We had breakfast in the hotel and set off around 8 in the morning. After a short trip, we arrived Forsand. Our fjord trip by vessel to reach Lysbotn, started from here at 09:10 and took around one and a half hours.

    Lysbotn appeared from afar

    [​IMG]

    When we came closer to Lysbotn, fog started to fall on the mountain we were supposed to climb. Because of this, we had to skip Kjerag Rock.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    When we got off the ship in Lyston, we went to Sirdal under a thick fog and trough curvy mountain roads. After Sirdal, the fog reduced. We connected to the highway no.9 around Nomeland and through Telemark we reached Skien.

    34th Day, Skien Oslo

    Track record is around 300 km.


    When we arrived in Oslo, first we went to the port to buy our tickets from Color Line Company, for the Oslo-Kiel navigation, two days after. Since the departure time of that day’s ship was approaching, officers were only processing that ship’s passengers. They told us to come after the ship’s departure. Because the ticket issue was delayed, we went for a short tour on the coast, before going to our hotel.

    Later on, we went to our hotel, changed our clothes, jumped on our bikes, and started to explore Oslo.

    Our first stop was the Opera House

    We will spend also today in Oslo. After we had breakfast in the hotel, we went to the port on our bikes. Our plan was to go to Bygodoy peninsula by ship and visit Viking Museum. We achieved this objective, despite the rain.
