Lærdal municipality is located about 300 km northwest of the Norwegian capital Oslo. The bus took about 5 hours plus a 30-minute break on the almost 300 km. At first it seemed like a lot to me, but the route by car would not be so much faster, because the speed limits on the roads in Norway are not over 100 km / h. Already on the trip there was an incredibly beautiful view. Giant rock formations stretch over the small community Lærdal, which will be our focus point the next day.
"Rådhus" bus station is only a five-minute walk from our final destination, Lærdal holiday and leisure park.
An impressive natural backdrop, right by the Sognefjord!
The capital of Norway not only surprised us with its many green areas and the interesting architecture, Oslo also surprised us with temperatures around 30 ° C! Now it goes further into the country, although it should not be so hot there, but also here it has not been a summer like this year for a long time.
By the way, a little anecdote: we had a hotel room without air conditioning! The last thing I thought of when I booked the hotel was the air conditioning! On the other hand, as in many Norwegian accommodation establishments, there was underfloor heating 😉
A bus ride is fun, a bus ride is nice "
So after we had explored and admired the great city of Oslo, we continued in the direction of Laerdal to the Laerdal holiday and leisure park. On the advice of a friend, we decided to take a bus ride, let's see what public transport in Norway can do. From our hotel directly at Karl John's Gate, it was about a 10-minute walk to the bus terminal, which is in the immediate vicinity of Oslo Central Station.
When I arrived, I was really thrilled, everything was super modern, clean and clear. We had booked the tickets in advance on the Internet, just under 50 euros per person.
The municipality of Laerdal is located about 300 km northwest of the Norwegian capital Oslo. The bus took about 5 hours plus a 30-minute break for the almost 300 km. At first it seemed like a lot to me, but the route with the car wouldn't be that much faster, as the speed limits on the roads in Norway are not over 100 km / h. Already on the trip there were incredibly beautiful views. Gigantic mountain formations line the small community of Laerdal in the valley, which will be our focal point for the next few days. The “Rådhus” (City hall) bus station is just a five-minute walk from our final destination, the Laerdal holiday and leisure park.
The holiday and leisure park in Lærdal
When we arrive at "Laerdal Ferie og Fritidspark", as it is called by Norwegians, it is early afternoon. Even Aarethun, who runs the generation campsite with his wife, walks around the site with us and shows us everything. One thing quickly becomes clear: you can definitely stop for a few days here! And regardless of whether you are traveling alone, as a couple, family or dog owner: everyone is welcome here.
In addition, the campsite, located directly on the Sognefjord, offers the right overnight accommodation or accommodation for every holidaymaker. Regardless of whether it is one of the hundred motorhome or caravan sites, your own small house (2-6 people), an apartment or just a piece of lawn to pitch a tent: everyone will find something here. There is also an Italian restaurant in the Laerdal holiday and leisure park, which offers delicious pasta and (giant) pizzas as well as a breakfast buffet, located right next to the reception.
