The distance from Valldal to Geiranger isn't far therefore there we had no hurry and we slept a bit longer. Awww, that was a benefaction after 1 week of getting up around 7 a.m. You must know that I'm not a morning person.
We came down the "Eagle road" (RV 63) which is very impressive. The road winds in 11 serpentines from sea level up to 624 m above sea level where you have impressive views on Geiranger village, the Geiranger fjord and the water falls. Half way you find a new observation platform. But be careful the parking space is limited and lots of tourist busses and cars stop there. It's kind of chaotic.
The brakes and gearing smoked and smelled when we finally reached Geiranger.
We decided to stay at least 2 days in Geiranger since we needed some time to relax and there are so many things to see and do in Geiranger.
After we got ready at the camp ground we had some coffee and cookies. Hmm, I love the yummy cakes with sugar and cinnamon.
Right behind the camp ground starts the Homlongseter hiking trail and to stretch our legs a bit we walked the first 3 km to Homlong and back. Buddy was soooooo happy and he ran up and down the whole way.
In the meantime the sun came out and I served dinner outside the camper :) It was kinda celebration. Our first open air dinner of the trip :)
