10 day driving itinerary

My family is planning a 10 day visit to Norway the first week of Sept. We are arriving in Stavanger and leaving from Alesund. We would like to see as much as possible without any long drive times in a single day. I would very much appreciate a suggested route with stopping points. Our knees aren't the greatest so hikiing needs to be limited activity, but we would like to do at least one scenic ferry. Thanks for any help

A drive South to North involves several ferry crossings, and you can look for longer (and more expensive) rides if 20 minutes is too short. But you dont really not go by boat to see fjords as roads runs along fjords. You dont need to plan stops in detail as panoramas appear all the time around the next bend - just pull over when you feel like. There are hardly any motorways and traffic is modest.

Please do not expect from a forum to do your itinerary planning - that is work of a travel agency. Best use of forum if you search for some itineraries already posted by others here for review and do your own based on that. This is a base the forum can help you with concrete advice / feedback.

Also look at these two pages to get started:

But, some us "experts" are little more knowledge than another, and like to share the distance we self have been driven / cycled, so when I have time, I have no problems to give you an idea of where you should / were you've to drive for see the most exciting sites..;)

But, its important for your self to study the map, driving distances and book your accommodations, and in general plan all details for your drive...

Part I: Stavanger - Bergen, https://goo.gl/maps/5U4PSj4eWBH2 (NB! Before you drive to Lysebotn, please check if the ferry to Forsand runs on your dates)

Part II: Bergen - Ålesund, https://goo.gl/maps/obPx1bRogsj

OBS! Maybe 10 days is to little to do all this, but we are different, some people need more time to shot all theirs pictures. I can promise that you'll cover all the most important highlights on this tour..;)
