Ørnefjellsveien is a good tourist attraction well worth driving miles to see. The scenery is fantastic with the Geiranger fjord and the seven sisters. Look for the Glass wall that gives you details of what you see when looking through it as it matches the scenery. Cleverly made.

Arriving late afternoon - and the parking place was full! A disappointment of course. However, as it turned out, driving up there the next morning after breakfast, we were alone at first with the view, the morning sun and the arriving cruise ships. Very nice! We spent some time just sitting at the nicely built up concrete steps looking out at the view and the ships.

11 turns from Geiranger and to the view point 620 m over sea level.
Great view
It is almost scary to meet a car who is driving the oposite way.

Short drive from Geiranger and the winding road is not the narrowest (fits two car widths). Go around sunset in summer (10pm ish) and you will have the place to yourself!

Ørnevegen –Eagle Road – is the name given to the steepest stretch of road up the mountain side from Geiranger towards Eidsdal on road no. 63.

The road swings through 11 hairpin bends up from the Geirangerfjord and to the highest point on the stretch, 620 metres above sea level at Korsmyra.
The road was officially opened on 15th September 1955 and gave the village of Geiranger year-round road access.

The road was an attraction from the very first day, and was called Eagle Road because at its highest point it passed through terrain that had traditionally been the domain of a large number of eagles.

The name also reflects the wildness, the spectacular that tourists and others using the road will experience, especially if they stop at Ørnesvingen, the highest of the hairpins. Facilities have been provided here for visitors to take in the magnificent panorama over Geiranger, the Geirangerfjord, the Seven Sisters Falls and the alpine farm Knivsflå, or to gaze down on the many cruise ships that traffic the fjord far below.

I'm not scared of heights too much but I must admit I had to close my eyes a few times during the way up through 11 harpin bends. If you are scared of heights go to Flydalsjuvet instead as its less scary and with better views of the whole Fjord. Ornevegen was also nice but as we arrived with the cruise ship there was nothing new to see what we haven't already seen from the ship sailing through the Fjord.

This is one of the popular stops to take scenic pictures of the fjord and the surrounding mountains. A 15-20 min drive from Geiranger to the lookout place may be pretty slow because of the traffic and large tour buses, so plan some extra time.

On nice summer days, the place is packed with tourists. You can take a short trail to the right of the lookout point to take good pictures without people around you.

Ørnesvingen gives you a perfect view of both fjord and mountain! The brave will hike up, the rest of us drives up, it is a steep climb for both people and vehicles. The road can be a challenge to drive for some, it is narrow and lots of hairpin bends. Limited parking, you might have to wait for a spot! But do wait and enjoy the view, it is worth it! Even on a rainy day...

When in Geiranger, you must drive a bit down the road to take the twisting road called "Eagles road". It is a challenging road as it hairpins its way up out of the fjord to the top of the mountain. There is a stop about half-way that has a viewing platform to see wonderful views of the fjord.
