I've wanted to go to Lofoten ever since I've heard of it, but always thought it was more one of those places you see in social media and not in real life. Now I'm here and it's even more incredible than I could have imagined. Thanks to my parents for being adventurous and planning this trip!
The incredibly famous hair pinned road in Rogaland county in the southwest of Norway, has its highest point in the Andersvatn lake, at an elevation of 3057 ft. above the sea level. Complete with 27 sharp bends, an average gradient of 9.4 % and twists and turns on a single track road this spectacular drive is not for the faint of heart.
Widely considered one of the most beautiful and dangerous drives in the world the road first passes through a 1,100 metre tunnel before continuing up the mountai. At the top of the ascent (640 metres) lies the Øygardstøl panorama restaurant and the car park for the walk up to Kjerag.
This so called twin-waterfall is one of the most visited ones in Norway.
I absolutely can understand why, as the falls are tremendous and particularly photogenic: the contrasts of the different shades of green from the fern, the moss and the trees in the back combined with the dark massive rocks that shape natural water channels.
Матёрые путешественники обязательно возят с собой бумажную карту, причём на видном месте, в сумке на баке в большом прозрачном кармане.
Это в комплекте с двумя(!) GPS-навигаторами и телефоном перед глазами 😂
Зачем - хз, но антуражу это добавляет 100% 😉

"Yea, I'll take the plot of land right at the base of the waterfall there". This little village of no more than 100 people is at the end of a fjord, seemingly only accessible by boat. I can't even imagine what it's like waking up here every day and looking at this out your window😍
