About this trip

A unique roadtrip along the lovely coast & impressive fjords of Norway.


Join us on this epic roadtrip along the coast of Norway. Imagine yourself looking out the window in our unique old timer double decker bus. Some nice tunes coming from the speakers, making new friends and cruising along the coast, while the sun warms your face!


On this trip we'll cruise along the southern coast between Kristiansand and Stavanger. We'll kayak between hundreds of islands, hike up to Preikestolen / Pulpit Rock, from where we look out over the impressive Lysefjord and tour by bike along the beautiful coast, scattered with lighthouses, also, we'll jump on a sailboat to see the beautiful coast from Norway from the seaside!

And of course..we'll take the time to relax as well!


SEE THE ENTIRE ITINERARY BELOW.

The Bus

Aside from the most unique form of transportation, the bus is also your accommodation on wheels! It will be your home away from home for the next 8 days. Fully equipped with a big lounge, kitchen, 9 comfy beds, heating, bathroom,  and of course.. a fire pit!


Of course part of the fun is to be driving around in our ancient bus, transformed from an old public transportation bus into a comfortable hostel on the move. We’ll be on a roadtrip together to discover the beautiful Norway. Sitting upstairs you'll almost have a 360-degrees view!


You’ll have your own bed, with curtains to provide some privacy and your own little reading light. Upstairs you’ll also find the lounge with a view, while downstairs is the living area, with kitchen, bathroom and dining area. 


Both areas have what we call in Dutch ‘ARKO’ (Alle Ramen Kunnen Open’) and a heating system for the colder nights.

WP
It was a fantastic trip. Lot of different outdoor activities - hiking, kayaking, sailing and cycling- in the beautiful area of Norway. The hosts were great, provided good food and most of all they created a atmosphere of fun and happiness with bonfires, games and a lot of laughing. I went alone, like most of the others, but within an hour, we felt like a family
