Driving from Trondheim to Bergen

I am looking to travel by car from Trondheim to Bergen from March 25-March 27. I am aware that some roads close. I found this trip itinerary but wanted to know if all of these roads would be open during the end of March?

Trondheim - Bergen travel route:

- Trondheim - Molde: 221 km, 4 hrs. Take the E 39 from Trondheim to Molde.

- Molde - Ålesund: 82 km, 1 hr 50 min. Take the RV 64 to Åndalsnes, then the E 136 to Ålesund.

- Ålesund - Geiranger: 107 km, 2 hrs 5 min. The RV 60 from Ålesund to Hellesylt and the ferry to Geiranger.

- Geiranger - Stryn: 75 km. 1 hr. From Geiranger, you drive the RV 15 to Stryn.

- Stryn - Førde: 120 km, 1 hr 50 min. Still on the E 39, you drive south to Førde.

- Førde - Bergen: 176 km, 3 hrs. From Førde, you take the E 39 to Lavik, from where you take the ferry to Oppedal and continue on the E 39 to Bergen.

I am looking for scenic routes. Also, how much should I expect to spend in tolls/ferries?

Thank you for any suggestions.

1) The ferry Hellesylt-Geiranger starts operating the 1st of May, and road 63 from Geiranger to Langvatn on road 15 opens late May. I suggest you skip Geiranger, drive route 60 from Hellesylt to Stryn.

2) From Stryn to Bergen, 60 to Byrkjelo, E39 to Skei, 5 to Lærdal and E16 to Bergen is a more scenic route than E39.

3) Totally 4 ferries, Molde-Vestnes costs 124 NOK for car and driver, the others around 100 NOK each. The only road toll is driving into Bergen.

Note that March is still winter, be prepared for snow and ice. Snow may in particular fall on road 60.
