I&#39;ve done that - from the Swedish border through Oslo and Laerdal to Bergen - A beautiful trip, if not exactly the best place for a novice driver. I suppose it could be done in one day ...

Some of the most beautiful and spectacular scenery I&#39;ve ever seen - anywhere. I&#39;ve seen photographs - posters - advertising Norway, but none have done justice to being there. Not even close.

I have a vivid memory of standing on the deck of the ferry out of Laerdal ... on the fjord ... at twilight.

- And that is a most intersting airport at Bergen. We turned the rental car in there and flew back to Oslo. *Very* interesting take-off.
