Superb route for those who like scenery and twisties. Not good for those scared of bumps and potholes
The route runs from fjord to fjord across high mountains where snow remains most of the summer. The viewing platform at Stegastein is a natural place to make a stop and offers a dizzying view over the fjord landscape.
The Nærøyfjord, included on the World Heritage List, offers breathtaking scenery. The Flåm railway line and Aurlandsdalen valley are further outstanding attractions close to the route, and well worth a detour. If you combine a visit to Aurlandsfjellet with a trip through the Lærdal Tunnel, which at 24.5 km is the worlds longest, you will be struck by the contrasts this area can offer.
National Tourist Route Aurlandsfjellet runs from Aurlandsvangen to Lærdalsøyri over a distance of 47 kilometres.
The mountain crossing is closed in the winter season, but the road from Aurlandsvangen to the Stegastein viewing platform is open throughout the winter. http://www.nasjonaleturistveger.no/en/aurlandsfjellet
