This is a spectacular drive. I went up ( from Aurland) at about 7:30 am and didn’t meet any cars until after the lookout. While the road is narrow in places, It has good guardrails and there are frequent spots to pass. Uphill traffic has...More

It was not our most favorite when we started driving up. We were a little apprehensive about the roads as we started driving a little late in the afternoon after missing the route from Stegastien lookout and ending up in Laerdals tunnel. But it didn't...More

This is the old road the crosses over from Aurland to Lærdal. The sights are spectacular, especially Stegastein with a magnificent view over the fjord. The road is unpaved and even in summer, there may be snow on parts of the road. The road is...More

It worths the drive, don't hesitate! That's splendid. Really. It's hard to describe it. It will take more than an hour to drive the 45 kms, but you won't regret it. And drive it from Laerdal to Aurland, it's really more spectacular this way. And...More

Norway is stacked with superlatives - as what I was told by Rick Steves' travel guide Snapshot Norway - it's the most mountainous, most scenic, and most prosperous of all the Scandinavian countries. Perhaps the most difficult question is when you should say it's the...More

This is an incredibly beautiful, inspiring and diverse drive. The scenery changes from plateaus and valleys to glaciers, waterfalls and alpine lakes. The road is windy and narrow as all roads are in Norway. Take your time, take photos, stop and admire what is around...More

We drove across the snovegen just as it clouded up. Luckily it cleared on the way down so we got some of the spectacular views. Driving in the clouds was very intense because the visibility was at about 30 feet. Despite this it is an...More
