Hardangerfjord should mean that you are heading to Laerdal

What altitude is it? It looks like a lot of snow for being June.

That's not really a lot of snow for June. It was a rich winter, so most mountain areas lost skiing-conditions just a couple of weeks ago.

Hardangervidda have an elevation of about 1100/1200 m. I'm not sure what it is at that specific point though.

Because driving along the Hardanger fjord and the Hardangervidda is a massive detour if you're heading to the Lærdal tunnel.

Chris drove this route in one of the directions. That's a big detour if your target is Lærdal.

There's no such thing as a 'detour' if you're sightseeing / road tripping.

It's just a tunnel tough, the road across the mountain has some pretty spectacular views over Aurland aswell as being a perfectly narrow, twisting fun road:

Yes and no. Some places had very little snow this winter.

Friday the 13th will become a somewhat historic day for the Norwegian road network. For the first time, there will be signpostet 110km/h on any Norwegian road. On E18, Kopstad-Gulli (Horten-Tønsberg, 12km), Langåker-Bommestad (Sandefjord south-Larvik north, 6,5km) and Sky-Langangen (Between Larvik and Porsgrunn, 10km) will get rised speed limits. The 22km long section of E6 between Årum (Sarpsborg south) and the toll at the Svinesund border will also be signpostet 110 the same day. Secretary of state in the transport department Bård Hoksrud is the person who will get the honor to push the button, literally, as the 110-sections will have electronic signs, controlled from Vegtrafikksentralens(road traffic control center) keyboards .

A small step in the right direction. But I won't be happy until I see motorways with at least 120 km/h and preferably 130 km/h.

The new E6 between Gardermoen and Minnesund was built for a future 120 km/h speed limit.

The new government has stated that is wants new motorways to have a design speed of 130 km/h. Which probably means a speed limit of 120 km/h.

They should be set to 113 km/h just fun, for that one day, friday 13th. The signs support it, i believe.

I drove E6 from Halden to Oslo. 100 km/h is really too slow, I was constantly having to get off the gas because I was over 110 unnoticed.

ChrisZwolle, do you happen to have a Google Map link with your whole itinerary of your Norwegian trip ?

Are you crossing from Kristiantsand (N) into Hjørring (D)?

Will you travel to Bodo or Trømso?

/offtopic question: is ø the same character both in N and D, or are there minor differneces?

I noticed electric cars are quite popular in Norway, especially in the larger urban areas, such as Bergen and Oslo. You can recognize them with the license plate that starts with EL (elbil - electric car). I've seen more electric cars in 3 hours around Bergen than in a month in the Netherlands.

The last part of E16 east of Kongsvinger is now also be brought up to standards. It's under construction to widen it by 1 m on either side, across 16 km between Masterud and Øyermoen. The rest is now widened to two lanes that can accommodate 80 km/h.

However, there is a railroad underpass just east of Kongsvinger that is too low for trucks (I think it was about 3 m clearance). A detour is posted for trucks.

By the way, what does -moen means? I've seen many places / locations ending in -moen.
