Somehow managed to miss this thread, Might be interested in doing this too cost dependant.
Did a roadtrip last year and made it up to Trollstigen and the Atlantic Road with many other spots, definatly worth a visit up that way.
Awesome! care to share your routes, costs, hotels etc..? any pics? andy

The basic route outline was
Hull - Rotterdam overnight ferry
Drove through the Netherlands into Germany and stayed the night at Quickborn just above Hamburg
Back on the road and drove through Denmark where i camped at Hirtshalls ready for the morning ferry to Langesund
Image
Drove into Norway and stopped for a 2 nights at a cabin by the side of a lake about an hour from Gol
Image
Image
I drove to Gol early to meet everyone else who was coming on the roadtrip.
Image
This was then the route we followed through norway for 3 days

Dalsnibba View point

Trollstigen

The atlantic Road

Some other stops

I managed to do it fairly cheap as when i drove up to Norway i stayed in camping, air bnb and cheap hotels ect.
The guys i was meeting up there were mostly from Norway or Sweden so disnt have quite as far to go.

Will see if i can dig out more info on the places we stayed

If you don't take it out and use it it's going to RUST!!

An incredible view spot. Although i recommend not trying to get onto it midday it gets very busy.

Yes it was quite the roadtrip.
If you make it up to that area then i highly reccomend it.
My favourite view spots were Dalsnibba and Trollstiegen.

Interesting....F1 at Zandvoort next year 10th May.

Drive around the coast up to Zandvoort. Take in the F1 and carry on up to Norway?
