Trondheim Geirangers

For breakfast, I had tuna and then Trondheim. When I arrived at 5am there was just me, the taxi and seagulls. I made a tour around the old town, Nidaros cathedral, crossing the Nidelva river over the Old bridge (view of houses on both sides). From there I went uphill toward Kristiansten Fortress for another view of the city.

Now path led me over Oppdal village west toward snowy fjord country. Stop at one gas station for a donut and Redbull (7 €). At the next gas station, I refueled (78 €). Stopped by the road and put my feet in the water of the fjord – cold and then washed my feet in the stream, even colder.

At some self-service store (some lady show me how to buy things there) bought some snacks and water (10 €). At one of the stops saw the biggest waterfall in Europe and 4th in the world, Vinnufossen.

Midway changed my mind and went toward Geiranger. Another stop at the gas station, fuel (64 €), chicken sandwich with pesto, and water (13 €). There was an interesting octagonal church at Stordal Rosekyrkja painted with rosemaling.

There I wanted to take another ferry toward Hellesylt, but it was not operating. I had enough of these fjords, so this meant doing the same way back, lost some time & money doing extra kilometers. Stopped overnight close to Otta village.
