We are a bit on a budget, since we're constructing a house, but we thought that such a roadtrip, that allows us to see a lot more of Norway than when we'd see by overnight hikes, would be so much more rewarding. Besides, neither of us was trained in trekking like we were last year in the Pyrenees.
After the hike in Norefjellstua, we were on our way to Eidfjord (Hordaland). We decided for our whole trip that we'd take as many national tourist routes as possible to get around in stead of driving through tunnels. We took route 7 from Geilo to Ringøy (13) and even the rainy weather couldn't ruin the beauty of the Hardangervidda National Park. I suddenly saw a magnificent view from the car (small glacier) and we stopped to take some photographs. The rain and cold wind got me back in the car quickly, but we decided to do a walk there. I changed clothing (thermal shirt, hiking boots, and my Fethaland hat to keep me warm!)
It was a beautiful walk. The only down thing was: mousquitos! I really had to tuck myself in so they wouldn't find any glance of naked skin. Of course, I couldn't hide my whole face so I had two bites, each besides my eyes. When we returned it started raining harder and that made the mousquitos go away.
Back on route 7 we passed a sign "Vøringsfossen". A large roaring waterfall in Måbødalen in Eidfjord.
I learned that I couldn't catch the greatness of it in a photo. (I have a video, but I'll post that later)
The day ended with a visit to the Hardangervidda Natursentre and at a camping in Ringøy.
