June is maybe the best month for travelling in Norway, because the night is short, or doesn’t exist at all. As it is in Northern Norway, the land of the midnight sun. I have just been north, to the coast in Nordland county, were the light is magical all 24 hours a day, and the nature and the landscape is of the most scenic kind. Behind every bend of the road (and there are many) there are some new amazing mountains and fjords.
I followed The coastal route, Kystriksveien, a scenic road between Steinkjer and Bodø. It is no autostrada, but it is more or less ok to drive there, especially since there were not that much traffic. But there are narrow parts, ferries and tunnels, so it is not a distance to be in a hurry.
I stayed at a camping site, Åmnes Camping, were the view is just heaven, straight to the open sea. The beach is also wonderful, but the temperature wasn’t very inviting for a swim, which can often be the case. See some more photos in my Coastal route photo gallery.
