If you are driving on holiday in Norway, this is a must see, impressive mountains and wild nature. Be aware though, the road is steep and some places narrow, so wide vehicles are not recommended:)

We travelled R55 twice. Each time we were envelopped in the fog and leaving the car was only enjoyable after putting on several extra layers of clothing. If you can, plan this trip with open and sunny weather.

The most beautiful scenery we have seen in Norway. Far better than the Atlantic highway. A ‘must-go’. We’ve driven it with our RV, no problem. Very quiet, lots of space to park. Many hiking routes along the way. Take your time, stop and admire regularly.

This is one of the best drives in the world. It goes from green fjords to a treeless plateau. Take your time at the top and look for the many hiking trails.

This is another of the national tourist authority's recommended scenic drives, from Lom to Gaupne, over the Sognfellet pass. This is Norway's highest mountain pass, with predictably stunning mountain views, waterfalls, and glaciers. Incredibly beautiful - even if you're sceptical of 'recommended routes', you should...More

Fantastic view of these very majestic mountains. Road is a little bit narrow at times but mostly fine (we were in a camper van). Lots of places to stop to take in the view. Well worth the trip

Route 55 across Sogne mountain is the highest mountain pass in Norway - and you definitely feel it - it was windy like crazy and thus cold when I drove this route in September but very beautiful.

We crossed the mountain on motorcycles, for me the first time. It was a fantastic and visual experience. The view is fantastic!

Amazing road with breathtaking views long 108 km is excellent way to see magnificent glacier landscape and Jotunheimen mountains. Curvey road is impressive so is cradle of mountains. Definitely worth going there.

Hi, nearest place should be at Otta, I know Hertz has a office there.
