Let me start by saying that my wife and I planned an entire month vacation around driving the Norwegian National Tourist Routes and we were not disappointed. This route is very high in elevation and is absolutely stunning. To be honest with you, most of...More

We drove from Hjelle to Grotli and this road is simply stunning. High up the autumn colours are just turning. Breathtaking views of lakes, mountains, glaciers and waterfalls. It is mostly single track but with plenty of passing places. There weren't many cars. There is...More

I'm in love with this area, I want to move here and live a simple life! <3 the narrow gravel road probably keeps heavier traffic and some tourists away which makes it more intimate. But the landscape and the scenery is worth coming a long...More

The road connects town mountain villages with the fjord village of Stryn. The route passes round, glaciated forms and steep, rugged topography. Skiing is possible far into the summer and the road is not opened until June. A lot of hairpin bends, the route then...More

We drove the old road and had the best views. Try to plan your drive on a sunny day to maximize the views. Sandy and stony roads so take a good car.

We took this tourist road on our way to Hjelle. It takes 30-45 minutes longer than the usual way (which goes through 3 tunnels), but it's so worth it! The views are amazing: snowy mountains, deep blue mirror lakes, water falls, etc. It's a gorgeous...More

We travelled late in August from Ospeli Bridge to Old Jøl Bridge past the impressive waterfalls Videfossen and Øvstefossen. Amazing views! But the road is narrow and winding and even though only 27 km long, we didn't have enough time to go the whole way...More

I drove this Norwegian Scenic National route today and I was blown away. It used to be the old passage over the mountain to Stryn, and is open only parts of the year so make sure to check. The road is narrow but surrounded by...More

On our way from Geiranger to Loen we decided to avoid the many tunnels on route E15 and also because it was designated as one of 18 National Touristic Roads of Norway. The road (#258) starts near Grotli and stretches for 27Kms until reconnecting with...More

I drove both ways on the same day (the route is not very long 27km (16 mi) but it will take you about an hour to drive one way to the conditions.), and in my opinion I preferred driving from Grotli to Videsaeter, although... More
