Sadly, it was time to leave Røros and hit the road. Places to go, people to see.
Our first proper stop was at Tynset – home of the World’s Largest Kick Sledge – 5.25 m long, 3.72 m wide and 11.60 m tall. Apparently it is 5 times the size of an ordinary kick sledge. I loved the little children playing on it like a climbing frame. So sweet.
We visited a lovely shop that sold the traditional Norwegian national costume.
Such amazing beautiful detail.
They also sold wool and craft things too.
I managed to indulge my love of icicles!
Our friend, neighbour, host and driver, Tore, very kindly said if I wanted him to stop to take photos, I was just to say!
So I did.
I loved the mountains.
We drove past Dovrefjell–Sunndalsfjella National Park – home of musk ox (we saw none) and Rondane National Park – home of reindeer (yup, none) and everywhere, apparently in Norway, is heaving with moose – none!
But the trees. So many trees!
After Tynset, we went onto Ringebu Stave Church – originally built in the 13th century, a bit more in 17th century and then fully restored in 1921.
It was stunning.
(another Narnia moment)
And, yes, more icicles.
Norway is a beautiful place even if I never saw a moose.
