Lom to Aurland direction in early Oct 2018

Hi,

Google map shows me 3 different routes from Lom (Fossheim Hotel) to Aurland Fjordhotel

- Fv55,Fv53, 5, E16 -175km;

- FV55, 5, Mannheller-Fodnes/Rv5 ferry, 5, E16 -198km

- Fv55,Fv53, E16 - 217km

This will be on our way back to Bergen. We would have visited Stegastein Lookout in earlier days.

Wondering if anyone could advise which is a better/scenic route to follow.

Thanks

Just as well take the first one - The last part is a toll road pay witc credit card.

Another scenic option is Fv51 across Valdresflye and E16. A bit longer though.

Note that route 55 Sognefjellet is a mountain crossing, you need to check the driving conditions before setting out when driving in October as there may be winter driving conditions.

Thank you, drengen and klimaflyktning.

Yes, I will check the driving conditions for route 55 before start. But can I know which is the website to check for real-time conditions?

What about 53 and 51. Are these routes safe for driving in Oct?

Thanks again.

The other option is at lower altitude and with less risk. If the visibility is poor, I would skip route 55.

Fv51 is 100 m lower than 55, ca1300m asl, and with less curves. Still, if Fv55 is considered no go, I would be careful on 51, too. In that case, it would be the lengthy detour across Rv15 Strynefjell.
