After the hike our plans to catch a ferry from one end of Lysefjorden to Lysebotn were slightly scuppered but a tiny mishap involving our car, a winnebago (or wankerbago as we now like to refer to them), a ditch and an uncovered stream runoff which resulted in a few hours sat on the side of the road waiting for a tow truck to come to our rescue which was only possible due to some friendly Germans stopping to help us otherwise it would have taken a lot longer
Back on the road and seeing the funny side of our situation we started the 2 1/2 hr drive we now had to do having missed the hour long ferry journey down the fjord.
Paying careful attention to the narrow windy roads and hundreds of wankerbagos, I swear Norway is just one big winnebago convention, we made it to the picturesque lakeside campground in Lysebotn (better late than never), cracked open a well deserved beer, made burgers, lit the disposable BBQ and watch the sun go down next to a giant waterfall.
