RVing in Norway: Lofoten

RVing in Norway: Lofoten

Show Video

Isn't. This a gorgeous, place. Well. This, is where we slept last night at this, rest area or parking, area as they are also called, just, off the e10 Highway we've. Been driving for the past two, days from the North Cape to, make it here, where. Are we you might ask well. We are just arriving, at this idyllic place, called, La Fulton, which, is this archipelago protruding. Of the western, coast of Norway, let's. Check it out. I'm riding. Riding. Riding, riding. In. My RV area. Wherever. I want. To be. You. Guys I'm free, in. My RV. Well. Good. Morning this, is where. We stayed last night. We. Have our neighbors, from, the Netherlands, and. Let's. Try to do a little bit of hike on, this trail, here. So. Gorgeous, out here, well you saw the drone food is probably. It's. A little muddy and, just rained, it's. Big it's been raining on and off all night. As. You can see is kind. Of wet. But. It's safe. See. A beautiful, area. Near. The Fulton will right before, the. Actual official, entrance, to the Fulton. Check. It out. Jeannie. To get out that's. What we're going. Would. You look at that tall, waterfall, I just. Wish it wasn't, so hazy. There, seems to be a village right. Next, door to us. Norway. Is a country, of unimaginable. Beauty. Let's. Hit the road okay. Let's, stop here real quick, and you. Know what I'm tempted to do I'm tempted, to drive, across that narrow causeway, and explore. This village. It's amazing, and, you know what I'm. Gonna do it don't. Tell my friend Petrie. Well. The, island is called hold Oya and according, to the norwegian, wikipedia, it is nowadays almost completely, uninhabited. Only. Six, inhabitants. As of 2001, it. Does, look pretty well-maintained, for a ghost town, maybe, that Wikipedia, article, I read is outdated. Okay. Let's turn around. Stunning. Landscape. Well. It's. Raining. It. Keeps raining here, in northern, Norway, I'll. Check out that cute. Quaint. Town. Looks. Like the Sun wants to keep it pick out but it's not, picking out yet. Good. Very. Nice. Well. Cameras getting wet let's get back, on the road. Look. At that. Here's, a rest, stop, and it looks like there is an observation deck, so let's check it out let's do a little hike here under the rain. Let's. Go back, looks. Like the Sun might want to come out eventually. Yeah wishful. Thinking. Gorgeous. Scenery here in the Fulton. Now. With the weight. That. Ride. On our crib, for, this. Well, here we are suave. Are the, largest town in the area, I have several points of interest here marked on my map so, let's see what we get to see. I mean, pretty large marina they have here. The, first place that had marked is apparently, some, ruins, and I think it is through this narrow bridge, here. It. Is becoming evident that, it might be a challenge to park the RV here, in this area. Well. This looks like a dead end, perhaps. I made a wrong, turn somewhere. This. Looks like another dead end and, some construction going on. You. Know what I'm just gonna, turn around let's. Look for something else to do these narrow streets they. Make me nervous, especially, driving a large vehicle, like the RV the. Idea here is to enjoy this, beautiful, landscape, instead. Of stressing over traffic. We're. Also totally out of wine, and some essentials, so let's stop by the supermarket. Here. We are there's, an automatic machine to pay for parking. Automatic. Machine we. Were able to pay for parking and now let's check, this out this is a Norwegian. Shopping, mall here, check. It out. Okay. This is the only place where you can buy liquor, no. Way yeah. Just like alcohol in Finland this is a government, monopoly which, by the way closes, early on Saturdays, and doesn't, open at all on Sundays, so you better plan ahead, now. Let's go to the regular supermarket. Did. I tell you I love, going, into supermarkets, especially. If I am in a foreign country, yeah. Our, next destination is called magic ice and, there is an ice bar, but not just, your regular ice bar inside, there is a permanent exhibition of, ice sculptures. Sounds. Really cool right or cold. Rather, it is -6. Degrees Celsius. Which is around 20, Fahrenheit, inside.

The, Camera is getting all confused with all these colored. LEDs, but anyways here's. The ice bar. Let's wait for our bartender. To come. By, the way apparently when the cruise ship docks this place gets swamped, with tourists, but, lucky for us today were the only ones we, got a berry, liquor, included. In the price of admission. Nice. Presentation here. With dramatic. Lighting and whimsical. Music. Again. Very hard for, the camera to capture it the way it really, looks because, of the lighting of course. It, looks like this used to be a refrigerated. Fish, warehouse, before, they turned it into the magic, ice bar, and it. Probably, falls into the tourist trap category, kind of but, in any case it, is a very unique, one at that the, bar. By, Congress. And for this under my. It's. Okay. This was fun let's, continue. Riding. Riding. In, my RV. Wherever. I want. Gasps. I'm through, admire, as. We approach the village of Kabul fog we, encountered, the vagan church which is also known as the Lofoten Cathedral. Is the largest wooden, building, in all of northern, Norway. Epicfail. With a parking, it would have been nice to see it inside. Our our next stop is going to be Hennings, var which is a little out of the way because, we're gonna have to take a detour from, the e10 which is the main highway, but, it might be worth it. Okay. Here's where we get off the main road and turn left. If. This road feels a little narrower, that's because, it is it. Is in fact a one lane, road although. Every few meters there they have this slightly. Wider areas, that can accommodate, for, two cars otherwise, it, is one lane road. Let, me tell you it is a little, bit of a way to knuckle, drive, here, luckily, there is not that much traffic, otherwise, this, could be a nightmare. The. Views are absolutely. Fantastic. Let's. Stop, at the caviar, Factory, I'm hungry, oh. Well. I was hoping to sample, some sturgeon, roe it, turns out the caviar, factory is an art gallery so. The joke's on me. In. Fact the, whole town is full of art galleries it, seems, to be the thing here. We. Might do a little bit of that but right now we, are very hungry, so let's find somewhere, to park and, something. To eat. It. Looks like this could. Be a parking, lot. Hmmm maybe not. Hmmm, I wonder what's all this junk, here, but definitely. Not a parking, lot, let's. Continue looking. Destroyers. Date. Number, six time alright I see, a bunch of RVs, so this, must be it, we, decide to walk under. The sprinkling. Rain towards. The center of town, yeah. Our umbrellas, are back in Miami, okay. It's really not raining. That hard. Okay. This is where we're going to eat which, actually, turns out to be a French, restaurant. We. Had some kind of fisherman's. Soup very good very, small very. Expensive. Nice. Collar on the world ooh. Watch. Out little, kid on bicycle. Next. We are going to drive to this looted, beach I found on the map where if the weather improves, it is going to be my last chance this, trip to make a time-lapse, of the Midnight, Sun. Let's. Stop right here and fly. We. Passed by this famous, Viking, Museum. They have here it, seems to be very popular, but we're not really in the museum, mood, today, if, you know what I mean, eventually. We, deviate, once, again from the e10, and take one of these secondary, one-lane, roads. But. We. Barely, fit. There's. A big tour bus coming our way. Yeah. That was a little, too close. First. Beach here, is called Holland, Beach but, this is not where we're going this, one faces, west which is not good if we wanna see the Midnight, Sun. Here. We are. Yes, I found out about this bitch online, and now we are finally, here. There, are sheep, everywhere.

Even Right here right next to the campground, which is basically, a parking. Lot. Hello. There. The sun's coming out, the. Improving, weather, gives me hope that we might actually be able to see the Midnight, Sun and so even though it is early, I think we're gonna stick around here until tomorrow. Let's. Walk down to the beach and check out this heart shape to rock here, at totally, artificial by the way the, way there is sheep, poop all over, the place. It's. The heart of the ocean. Pretty. Interesting phenomenon, with these rainbow. Colors, on the clouds pretty, cool. Very, strange. Well, we made it here too I think it's pronounced puta Cleve beach. And. The. Midnight Sun is, supposed to come down this, way and. Look. At this place, I mean, this. Is this is. Only. Money unimaginable, beauty, here. At this piece here in the, fortune. Camp, site is up there and. Yeah. I'm speechless. Let's. Just. Take. A break, Westy I've driven, way, too much. As. I usually do you, know I I. Underestimate. That. The length of the drive and I try to do too many things in, too, short a time but we only had two weeks here so, I. Wanted. To. To. Achieve as much as possible unity, to fit in as mass many as many things as possible to, see in this video and. Well. At. The beginning, of the day didn't start out so well but right now this is amazing. Let's, go back to the RV but, we would have have internet, here you. Barely have a cell phone signal you. Like make calls that's. That's the one the one negative. About. This idyllic, place right, here super. Health we're surrounded by all this shape here. Grazing. In this. This. Valley here. They're. Very friendly there's, sheep poop all over the place so we have to like be careful when we walk but. Wouldn't. You agree that we, once, again found the, perfect spot to spend the night at or. The Midnight Sun or whatever, not having a proper night gets, really, confusing after. A few days, they.

Could Get used to the constant daylight, though even if it only lasts, a few days. Totally. Mesmerised. At, this place. Ha. I think, the drones gird the sheep. As the. Day progresses, it starts, to get cloudy, hmm. Not a good sign. He's. Our feast while. We wait for. The Midnight Sun here. It's. Darker, and closer. Nice. Almost, midnight, and with these clouds there's very, little hope I will get to see the Midnight, Sun, which. Only means I will have to come back to this beach someday. With more time and wait, for the ideal weather conditions. While. The time-lapse is going I decided to go for a little hike it. Kind, of interrupted. By a light rain. Isn't, this a surreal place. Know. What I was going to do a hike but. It. Looks like the rain is coming. And. It's coming fast and. Then, you go back to the RV where it looks like this is as good as it's going to get for us today for, the Midnight Sun. But. It is now about 1:00 a.m. which is the astronomical. Midnight. Here. In Fortune, Island, the. Sun should be coming I mean shouldn't, be coming question, the Sun should be right, around there two degrees above, the horizon right, on the true north and, as. You can see it is cloudy so. We're. Getting the Midnight Sun today I. Think. I'm gonna go to sleep, I'll. Leave the camera the way the time-lapse them. Well. Yeah that was kind of disappointing. But still I feel so lucky, I was, able to come here even if I didn't, get to see the Midnight, Sun yeah. I know I'm obsessed. 1:35. A.m. well. The Sun kind of made an appearance leading. To the quote-unquote, night. The, view from. Our room, that's, reverse sleep. Well. Good morning. It, is time, to go. We. Are actually taking a different route, back another, one of these narrow. Roads. Here. We are back, on the e10. The. Most striking. Views, should, be coming up in this area towards, the end of the archipelago. But with these low-hanging, clouds I don't, know if we are going to be able to see them. All. Those racks, you see everywhere, they, are drying fish stuck. Fish cut, to be exact the drying of food happens to be the world's, oldest-known. Preservation. Method, Oh No. Let's. Take a quick break here. We're. Almost towards. The end of, the island chain. Here. We are made the picture-perfect. Village. Of Hanoi. This. Is the village called rainy, famous. For, the views. Perhaps. We should have gone for a hike on these granite, formations, but. The weather it's, not, the most inviting, besides. Our time here is running out, in just. Five days we, have to be back in helsinki, to return the RV and take, a plane back to Miami I. Have. Promised, myself I, will return to, this place someday. With. Much more, time because I don't think we've seen Lofoten, at its best, nor, the best of, Lawson. Take. An excellent, doctor it's vegetate Rick's ready. We. Are arriving at Muskaan's. Where, the ferry to the mainland, departs. Originally. The idea was just to find out exactly the times and returned later but. Seeing the long line we've decided, to stay and wait, the two hours until departure right, here. For. The ferry. In. Three and a half hours we'll, be in buddho where, we will drive across Norway, into, Sweden, but, that will be on the next episode. I know, we, missed a couple of villages towards the end of the island chain and particularly, the one called our which, is a fishing, village Museum. But, as I said this. Is one of those places in the world worth, repeating. So, we'll be back someday.

Show Video


Should be easy and more viewer if vlog video seperate into part 1 and 2 for an hour show. Atleast more people like to watch shorter show, and continue for part 2 for next round if time unavailable, and perhaps ads times 2. Good video

28:42 He says he is speechless but he's actually talking...

@5.10 mark, there is a drawing or photo of a woman, wonder why?

I think those signs are there to remind them of the speed limit. Saw them all over norway

You make the best videos! You are so lucky to be able to travel the world! Keep making these great videos I always look forward to seeing them.

Thank you! I hope I can continue traveling

Great relaxing video. Loved the Ice Bar.

Thanks, glad you liked it

Careful Bob! Those Scandinavians can drink you under the table! That said I have been to an ice bar in Hong Kong and got thoroughly plastered on too many vodkas. And speaking of supermarkets in foreign countries, the wife and I just got back from Tokyo and I got a kick out of the convenience stores and supermarkets. Gotta love places where you walk into a 7/11 and buy a can of beer to drink on the street. Come on America!

Too bad I was driving and couldn't have too many vodkas. It is cool to see the different things they have in different countries at the supermarket.

Stunning! Thank you for sharing.

You're welcome

wow Gtrat Video Robert Glad to see you out there is a really special Place ...Have fun..

Thanks brother

Great drone captures Robert! Thank You!!

Thank you!

Norway is such a land of unimaginable beauty. Gracias, Robert.

It is

I was just watching a video on how beautiful Greece coastline is, and this video on Norway blows that away

It is amazing

Robertico tremendo video !!


Great videos.....but also a lot of commercials!

Brilliant as always! Thx Robert.

Roberto that voice ! I am appointing you the James Earl Jones of the Latinos. Great video.


Great video, as always! Beautiful country and amazing views. Thanks Jimmy

Sheeps yeah, neither fertilization nor lawn tripping is needed. They make it free and finally it becomes food that tourists pay dearly for.

From The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy: “Slartibartfast got an award for designing the Coastal areas of Norway! He Loved all the Krinkly Edges!”

drbassface Wow great reference. Thanks for the reminder of that great movie.

Hi Robert Im enjoying following your travel to the north of the arctic circle. I'm from Hammerfest, Finnmark. (now living in Fredrikstad. 1hour from Oslo) I have been at most of the places you have visiting in north of Finland and Norway, so its funn to see. Im amazed that you have manage to visit so many of plases at so little time. it's a long drive on tiny roads with amazing views :) ps. sorry about the wheter. its normal up north and it can go form blue sky to rain and back in a few hours, and then do the same again.

Yes that was a very long drive but very enjoyable

drive too fast!

Really Beautiful from Dave and my Sue-Z!

Didnt watch to end - was pretty shit all through - come on , this is just a crash cam post right !!!!!

Sham Bells what the hell is your problem dude?

music is again complete shite!!! Do we really drive RVs in Europe!!!!!

Just talked about Jarre and in Ice bar there was Oxygen playing. Too bad you had such lousy weather. I was in Lofoten islands first time in 1989 and those days we needed 11 ferries to get to Å. There was nothing in Å back then, just few fishermen cottages. Last time. I was there in 1991 and there were new roads, bridges and tunnels. The old road went through the town Sortland that used to be the biggest. The road continued on east coast of Langøya. A bridge between Langøya and Hadseøya was biggest I had ever seen up to 1991. A ferry from Melbu to Fiskebøl took 25 minutes. Nowadays E10 makes a shortcut in that area. Norway roads takes at least double or triple of time than people usually estimates. Tero

It was a long beautiful drive... now going back to Finland on the next video

Next time you go to Norway, visit Trollstigen.

Aw so beautiful ....now waiting for next episode ...thank you for sharing your video with us .

Well, gee, Robert. Now I have to plan a trip to Norway and it's all your fault. :)


Amazing video. Gorgeous long waterfalls .... lovely villages ..... beautful grazing sheep .... fabulous seascapes and mountain views. Your drone shots and time lapse were magnificent. I was a bit surprisd at the cost of meals on the road. Seems important to stock up on groceries and eat in rhe RV. Can't wait for the next video!

Thank you. Yes, eating out in these countries is very expensive

thanks, robert and spouse for the all the great travelling of norway.. paul joihn charron in schroon lake ny. rv park. for 2 months. leaving august 26 for home of ottawa, ontario with my 2015 sunset trail by crossroads. 25ft...(best quality trailer. so far.very upscale. and my newer 2014 sierra gfx special edition..the good lord provided all these. im thankful..and thankful for you sharing your videos and showing us the rving world OF TRAVELLING ROBERT.....ILL DRINK TO THAT...HAHAHA

You're welcome. See you on the road

Very well produced, and always good to see you out of Florida.(Bravo)

Are you not going to Trollstigen and then Geiranger (road 63)? Probably the most beautiful road in Norway.

Too out of the way

Love it! Can't wait to see the next installment

Thank you! Sweden is next

Thank you! I was sooooo waiting for this episode. It's a pity that you had so much typical Norwegian weather there but luckily you had some sunshine and blue sky too. This video made me a very strong desire for travelling to Lofoten again! I don't know what's going to happen in next episode but if you didn't visit Norwegian Aviation Museum in Bodø, do that next time. It is a very interesting place even if you're not in "museum mood". That museum definitely changes it :)

I'll be back in 2021 or 2022 and then I'll visit the museum (spoiler alert: didn't visit it this time)

oh2mmy . I agree with you Mikko.

In the winter it s not easy to drive there, you need winterchain s for sure.

I can only imagine

Great views,impressive music,fine narration.....in short:another Morales superproduction here and a titbit to enjoy especially on a rainy and windy Sunday evening.Congrats buddy!Greetings from William

Thanks William

Most of those houses on Holdøya (and many other small villages in Norway) is used as holiday houses. Thereby maintained well.

Spectacular scenery! However, the one-lane roads no doubt provided some hair raising moments!

Sandy Fatland Imagine building roads in Norway. Not the easiest task I’ll tell you.

breathtaking views, thank you for another amazing episode

Great respect to you , sir, for promoting Norway the way you do. I hope there is more to come. I can recommend a trip to my small city of Halden in the south-east. There's a fantastic medieval fortress here just waiting for your drone. Safe travels.

Thank you. We liked Norway quite a bit. Maybe we'll visit Halden next time

Hi Robert,thank you very much for sharing yet another great video here about your recent experiences in Norway.Well worth the wait buddy.Once again you made my day here.Cordial greetings from William in Bruges,Belgium,Europe

@2:50 Nice editing. You enter into one tunnel and exit from another. Almost fooled me to think I lost track on where you are.

Incredible and unimaginable beauty, done in your own distinctive and creative style. There's really no YouTube channel like yours that makes travel so immersible, Robert. Thanks for the ride-along! I remember some the awesome and surreal photos you had on Instagram, and still think you should consider a one-man show...my goodness...

Nature is the cure for depression.

Where on this planet have you not been? Norway is amazing.

Norway is definitely unique. We liked it a lot

Hey man my family is cuban and loves your channel and I love the music you create for you videos!

How do you afford to do this?

I know Robert is a musician and play s in Hotels or clubs and writing music, maybe it s a good income,., and 52.000 subcribers here on YT, not sure how much he get out of YT, it all depends if we look at the commercials I thought.

Albertus Jansen wish I could find a way to make money and do this at the same time. At the rate I going I can retire and do this when I'm about 140 years old

He married a rich woman, lol,., or won the lotery,., or is a member of a syndicate, aaaaa gh, who know s.


Thank you

So inviting. I wish to spend a month in those lands one day and enjoy their cuisine and landscapes.

A month would be ideal

So relaxing to watch. Thank you. From Denmark

you should make video how to stay motivated.... Last time a have problem to motivated myself to create a new videos... I have a lot of shots to do that but running out of motivation :( Its hard to share my time with my work, kids and youtube... I have to give up one of these 3things and probably thats have to be my 40h/60h week work :))))

I might need one of those motivational videos myself :-)

These views remind me of Iceland, where you should head out too, if you can!

I will one of these days

Aaahhhhhh.... just beautiful!!!


Great video! Thanks for the journey

Second viewing ... 2 thumbs up! Just love this trip!

Thanks! Trip of a lifetime for sure

Beautiful! Great content! And I love your intro!

Another amazing video Robert!

wow .... amazing

What a breathtaking place!! Robert, your travel videos are by far better than the ones on TV! You do a awesome job on them. So relaxing and peaceful to watch!! And love love love the music you put with them too...you are talented in multiple ways!! Would love to see more Munchpak videos. Really enjoy those too! Keep those great videos coming!!!

Thank you! I have a couple of Munchpaks coming up

Man, I gotta work harder on my vacations! Great job as usual, Sir.

What an amazingly beautiful country..." very picturesque" LOL...Great job as usual Robert...the main downside I see is....No Pelicans ;-)

You make great videos, kind of addicted to them. Wanted to ask how the heating system works for RV when you don't have access to electric power? Also can you please do a informative video for tourists if they want to hire a RV and travel in US. Best wishes

Thank you! The furnace on the Sunlight is very efficient. The heat is produced by LPG, and it has a fan that doesn't consume a whole lot. We never had a problem boondocking overnight, even in cold places.

Robert, my girl friend & I watch all your videos!! We love them.. we are very interested in the micro Minnie 1706fb like the one you have. What’s your honest opinion of these units. How is the build quality? I know you had an issue with the Atwood water system but any other major issues leaking, poor construction etc? Also what type of suv do you tow it with? I have a Toyota Highlander rated for 5,000 pounds. The local dealer by me said I should have no problem towing. What’s your vehicle type & rated for towing? Thanks again my friend!!! Safe travels!!! Shorefoot

Traveling Robert thank you sir!!! If we every make it down to the Miami area we will take you guys out for dinner!! Thanks again!!

Thank you! No major structural issues. The particle board in the bathroom is starting to warp and disintegrate. I wonder who though that was a great idea at Winnebago. I tow with a barely adequate Kia Sorento capable of 3500 pounds so your Highlander should be OK


Beautiful videos. Breathtaking scenery. Where are all of the people? The music in the video makes me think you are going to see Thor.

If you're a friend of roe, I hope you sampled Svolværpostei. It's a spread they make of cod roe and cod liver. I find it delicious.

I didn't... That would have been good

Gorgeous place and thank you for great video!

Good to hear that you will be back. It is worth it. You were very unlucky with the weather. This guy had more luck. Check this video out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lS_e4n3XNKQ&t=263s

Hopefully when I go back I'll get lucky with the weather

maybe little less ads?

I realized YouTube inserted 8 ads automatically. I removed some

Robert - so well done. thanks for sharing your experiences

You should check Midnight Sun in sunny Finnish Lapland, for example at Levi, Pyhätunturi, Saariselkä or Äkäslompolo.

Maybe next year, thank you

Good point :-)

I totally agree with that!!!

Moriarty Vivaldi Check it out 19:26 in! https://youtu.be/-uLGqswALJs

drbassface I can imagine.

Moriarty Vivaldi It was even better as the 12 half hour BBC Original Radio Broadcasts! Much better...although the movie had some nice special effect visuals.

At least in Finland the law states that everyone needs to use winter tires in wintertime, not chains. (Winter tires, these things: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Snow_tire#/media/File:Spikereifen.JPG ) I'm pretty sure it's the same thing in Sweden and Norway. Chains aren't as good as softer tires with metal studs

I'm grateful these roads were built so Robert, and others, could show us so much beauty. My husband's family came from Norway about three generations ago. It is wonderful to see different parts of such an amazing country.

2 fish chowders and fresh bread $80? Yikes. Great vid. Thanks for sharing.

We also had wine, but still, yikes. Norway is very expensive, even more so in the remote north

Beautiful places!

Great aerial photography Robert. Thank you for taking the Drone along with you.

Muy Buenos y relajantes sus videos thank very much Robert and family.


Fishing boats all over I thought fish might be reasonable...

The fish soup and bread was $20-21, not too bad for an expensive dish being in a fancy restaurant in a tourist (trap) area. Bacalao is $28 at that restaurant. What makes the meal expensive is the wine, that would easily be $10-12 or more per glass.

It was this one, the text says: Over the speed limit? https://dbstatic.no/64579682.jpg?imageId=64579682&x=0&y=0&cropw=100.00&croph=100.00&width=1024&height=1101

Yup, in the part of Norway Robert drives, snow tires are mandatory from October 16th to May 1st. Some have studded winter tires, but studless are more common. Chains are only for exstreme situations and short distances. People know how to drive on snowy, slippery roads with studless winter tires in Norway.

During winter sun does not rise for several weeks. Think about that!

This video is to boring

Wow, talk about a visual overload! Beautiful

Yes, Lofoten is unique.

Felicitaciones Robert excelentes las imágenes con el dron se aprecia las maravillas de la naturaleza .

@31:01 - Drone view of RVs with solar panels at Norway Beach. And what an amazing place.

How the HELL you can afford all this? Norway is hte most expensive country in the world.

You shud leave more time for whalespotting also next time. Thats what I would do. Awesome vid.

Thank you. I wish I had more time

I have experienced both (Midnght sun and day without sunrise) at Saariselkä fjell in Eastern Lapland, There is actually daylight for few hours per day. Driving conditions different compared to summer... :) Aurora borealis / Northern lights possible but not quaranteed. As Finn have seen them only twice during my life.

I would actually like to experience that some day

nice video....beautiful shot

You really need to plan your trips better. You’re always in a rush and seem to always just do drive-by’s of the locations you visit.

I like your video style. It makes me feel like I am there with you.

It was an amazing place. So lucky to be able to see it

Hi Rob that is so beautiful I love it

Great views from Lofoten and good edits, thanks! Here is a short clip from Å, which you missed. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kG71trW8cO8

Wonderful Robert! I didn't see where you explained did you rent an RV or were you sponsored. I was trying to look through your videos where you explain. I would like to RV Europe as well and am trying to learn. So beautiful!!!!! Happy for you!

It was "lent" to me by a friend who owns a rental company, so if I mention savoniacaravan.fi then I guess technically it is sponsored. Bottom line, I only paid for diesel and propane.

You’re living my life . Enjoy

What amazes me is how all the houses and buildings are RIGHT next to the roads! I wonder if they get hit a lot. And those narrow roads! I guess there aren't many flat places. And no guard rails! White knuckling it! Stunningly beautiful.

That was a great white knuckle drive

stunning landscape with the rainclouds hanging over the mountains. looks so beautiful.

Fine video Robert! Loved the drone footage at the beach, and your time lapse. I've got a lot to learn from you with how you shoot your footage. Working on my first time lapse now. Not as easy as it looks. Loving this trip!

I have just watched your trip to Oslo, via Finland to North Cape and Lofoten. It`s a shame that you visited North Norway this June, the worst in decades, weatherwise, that is. I enjoyed your videos. Greetings from Ivar

0:30 While it's technically correct that it is on the western coast of Norway in the sense that it's a coast and it's to the west we don't use the term here in Norway for that area. Here in Norway the west coast is areas roughly southwest of Trondheim and northwest of the southern most point of Norway. Basically the western part of the "bulge" to the south. Everything else we'd say northwestern or some such as those areas are further east then the actual western coast but they're further northwest. (Usually we'd just use the name of the region though, Finnmarkskysten (the Finnmark coast) or Nordlandskysten (the Nordlands coast) basically the coast of whatever the name of the region is. 2:35 Thanks =) Personally I feel we got too much forest though :-P (I got family on Iceland and the Faero islands and I've lived in some of the most forested areas in Norway so I've kind of had an overdose on trees) 4:20 No, unfortunatly it's not... That said, people who are *not* living there might still use some of the houses as vacation houses. 7:44 I'm impressed by your "Æ", it's very close to how we pronounce it. =) You pronounce our "Å" as an "A" instead of the sound it is supposed to have but your "Æ" is pretty much spot on. =) 8:07 Fishing vessels from all over Norway used to come up there to fish off the northern coast of Norway in ships perhaps 25-30% longer then your RV (I might be wrong, not easy to eyeball lengths just based on a video) all the way south from Bergen and up. 23:51 Pity. When I was in "folk high school" (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Folk_high_school) I sailed from Trondheim to essentially that Museum in a traditional fishing vessel from 1800 or so then we sailed one of their viking ship replicas. Unfortunatly there was no wind that day so we had to stick to just oars instead of testing their new oil covered sails (I don't remember the details of what the deal was with that sail, it was stinking at any rate, but they had apparently been hoping to test a theory with us but didn't get a chance to do so...) 24:06 Man, that almost looks like your standard rural road on Iceland. There's a lot of those on Iceland, there's quite a few in Norway too but you don't see them as much due to them mostly going to individual farms, houses, logging camps etc quite some distance from the villages and because there's usually forest in the way hiding them. 24:37 You pronounced "Haukland" as "Hakland" the "au" sound is pronounced differently in Norway (you seem to have a lot more silent letters in English then we do) 30:51 Yeah, that is a *really* good looking place even by Norwegian standards. =) Makes me want to go there. ^^ 35:40 I think I remember that stretch of road... Someone gave us a ride between the viking ship museum and where our boat was towed up. (not sure if that's the correct english word) 41:42 Oh, you *do* know how to pronounce "Å" =) That's two out of three. Only the "Ø" left to work out. 42:47 Remember when approaching Norway you filmed a Sami flag and said you where getting close to Norway because you saw a "Norwegian" flag? Well, here is the *real* Norwegian flag. ;-) The Sami one is different and got a circle in it instead of a cross like the Norwegian one does. Both flags have both Red and Blue in them but the Sami one also got some Yellow and Green while the Norwegian one also got some White.. I do hope you'll return as Norway got a lot to offer and I think you'll enjoy it if you have the time to do so. ^^ It's a bit of a luck thing too though as the part of the coast where the bad weather hits differs each year. One year they all hit to the south, another they all hit to the north, a third one they all hit in the middle etc...

Awesome travels.

Agreed, I've never heard our placenames here in norway expressed with such flair and bravado!

Would enjoy doing a puzzle of these villages!

Wonder if August-September would have nicer weather?

Tell us what you think of their food! Anything that stands out compared to American? Thought the water out of faucet only! I drink a lot of water...would be hard to find a faucet while driving! Do they put fluoride in their water?

I don't know but tap water seems to be really good. The salmon and seafood in general was really good.

18:07 That junk is actually from renovating that building. I was there a few months after you.


Reminded me of a certain radio voice in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City.

Your intro is so Lit!

In 2015, Holdøya had 12 residents

Technically you don't enter Lofoten before you hit Vågan kommune. Everything before that is Vesterålen, where I come from. :)

I dont know if you read this but you should visit Svalbard

narrow roads, you say? ... what do you think about the lenghts?

It's nice to see they drive on the same road as folks in the US
