Other matters brought Blu Acciaio and Friends to Leikanger. We decided to bicycle back to Oslo. After all, cycling is our preferred mode of transportation. In order to avoid the tunnels, we headed for the mountains. The first stage took us from Leikanger to Turtagrø. After a most pleasant stay at Turtagrø Hotel, we started the second stage by following Tindevegen to Øvre Årdal.
Tindevegen provides for an audacious shortcut through Jotunheimen, with breathtaking scenery, steep climbs and daunting descents. The descent to Øvre Årdal was truly epic and lasted a whooping 21 minutes. Check out our YouTube-video from the descent:
