The first 2012 Edelweiss motorcycle tour around Scandinavia is about to start. The tour guide Michael has already arrived in Oslo bringing safely all the bikes and Manuel, the other tour guide, will land tomorrow flying from the neighbor Denmark. Only the last details and set ups are left, we are getting ready to welcome our great group of Venezuelan friends!
The first day of this tour has just ended: quite a great introduction of Norway, bringing us a variety of sun, partly clouds, quick showers, light rain, partly sun, clouds&sun, etc... providing us a late-afternoon gift: sunshining on the terrasse of the hotel, right atop a lake. There is even a beach, but for our lively Venezuelan group may be a little colder. Norway's got fantastic mountains and scenic fjord, connected by breathtaking roads, but it is surely not the best beach&swim destination.
View from the hotel in Oslo, starting point of the tour.
In the middle of Telemark: plenty of "hytte", holiday wooden-houses with grass roof.
Who cares about the cigarette stop? We go bigger here!
The Duc is always eager to start riding again.Admiring a very old stave church.
Admiring a very old stave church: Eidsborg.
Happy group after 330km of good roads... only 5km (and 10 hairpins) to the hotel...
