We went in summer 2018, from late Aug - mid Sep.
- Land in Oslo, pick-up rental car
- Drive to Telemark via Heddal Stave Church
- Camp overnight at Telemark Camping
- Not only did I love this campsite and the location, but also the couple running it. We arrived very late, the restaurant at the campsite was closed and we didn't have any groceries. The couple sold us some chicken, fish and veggies for 5$ so we could cook and eat dinner at our campsite. I was bowled over by the Norwegian hospitality on the very first day :)
- Drive from Telemark to Lysebotn on the eastern end of Lysefjord.
- Camp overnight at Lysebotn Camping
- This campsite location was stunning, right next to a waterfall with great views of Lysefjord. I couldn't ask for more even if I tried.
- Kjeragbolten hike for the day
- Food at the Kjerag restaurant next to the trailhead
