20 day itenary Norway - Need some feedback/confirmation

Hello everyone,

My girlfriend and I are leaving next week for Norway for +- 20 days. At the moment we are preparing the route and the first dilemma already presents itself: do we focus on south/west Norway or do we also visit the Lofoten islands? I have made a first planning below and was wondering what you think about this?

Important information is that we leave by car from Antwerp (Belgium) and we don't want to take a flight. This is obviously not ideal, but it is the only way to combine north and south/west. We would camp for most of the days. Depending on the weather and our mood, we think we will stay in an Air BNB up to 3 times.

In the planning you will see that we prefer nature over cities. It is because of skipping the cities that I believe this route can be realistic (and exhausting).

What do you think? Would you recommend us to only focus on the south/west? Is seeing the Lofoten Islands worth the trip? Is it too ambitious?

Note: This is a first version of the route. The first decision we have to make is whether to include the Lofoten Islands. When we know this, we will work out the route and activities in more detail. In any case, don't hesitate to share further tips (hikes, locations, wild camping coordinates) :)!

The link is harmless, it goes to a flickr image. But, it would be better if it was posted as text in the forum.

However, you have not scheduled any time for quarantine.

Sorry for the link above. I didn't see any other possibility to add my schedule. In text form it was unreadable. As mentioned above, it is a reference to the photo of the route.

Regarding the quarantine: My girlfriend and I are fully vaccinated and according to the latest information on the government websites, we do not have to respect a quarantine.

If you are fully vaccinated and have EU-certificates to prove there is no need for quarantine.

But it would be a lot easier to comment on the plan if you post it in the forum and not as a link. Regarding Lofoten, I'm not sure it's worth it. Sure, the scenery is amazing, but so is the scenery in the south. And it is a long drive to Lofoten.
