8 and half days itinerary for loop from bergen

hello

my planned route - Bergen-voss-gudvangen-aurland-laerdal-ovre ardal-urnes-solvorn- lom-otta-

-ardalsnes-eidsdal-geiranger-loen-viksdalen-balestrand-bergen

my interest - waterfalls, nature,easy hikes (retired couple)

how does it looks for 8 days?

is it possible to change route from voss to eidford road 7 to hol and then to aurland by r50

isn`t it too much driving?

thanks i.o.

Personally I think this is way too much driving, can you split this into days 1-8 so we can get a better idea on how you plan to this?

Also when are you visiting? If this is in June/July/August this year accomodation availability may limit you options.

Because of long distances and limited number of hotels in each village, you can get trouble if you wait until the end of the day. If there are no vacancies in one village, perhaps you have to drive 1 hour to next village, be aware that these are mostly villages. July is high season.

Hotels will be around €200 per night including breakfast. B&B's and guest houses are few and far between and often booked up because they are the cheapest option in an expensive country.

To get you started:

Day 1

Scenic route from Bergen to Aurland

http://tinyurl.com/kxp7vxv

230 km - estimated 4 hours of net driving

Accomodation in Aurland almost within your budget, rooms or cabins

Eplet Bed $ Apple is also within your budget. It is in Solvorn and it is a gem in the budget bucket:
