Nordkapp
« on: Jan 25, 2013, 11:30 AM »
Despite things being rather shakeup at work I've requested the first 3 weeks of July off with a view to riding to the Nordkapp at back. My first long motorcycle trip.
I intend to camp and would like to follow a coastal route up.
Anyone done this and got ideas of route and costs?
Is it better to take the ferry to Denmark (slow and boring I suspect) or channel tunnel and then ride up?
Are petrol stations far apart as you head further north? If so is the Vs range more than enough?
Will I be paying tolls?

I'm planning something similar for 2014. Was going to do it this year but busy renovating a house instead  :151:
I've researched a bit. I'm planning to avoid the coastal roads in favour of some of the spectacular mountain passes.
50mph limit everywhere and stonking fines if you get caught  :211:
Wild camping is allowed so this would mitigate the rediculous cost of everything in Norway :5:
When I get a chance I'll post some of the roads I was looking at.

I want to retire, no longer required,
I want to get by without the man on my back.

Do a search for Trollstigen  :152:

Mountain passes sound good, like the look of Trollstigen.  :)

This vid looks great:
