Snow along the road most of the summer months
From the west cost in Norway. Sogn og Fjordane county. The Aurland Mountain (Aurlandsfjellet).
This road has been nicknamed «the snow road» («snøveien») because of the snow along the road most of the summer months. Highest point is 1306 meters.
Runs over the mountains between Lærdalsøyri to Aurlandsvangen.
You will encounter many striking contrasts over a short distance.
Few traces of mankind
One of the most distinctive things with this road is that the stretch is barren and go through a landscape that appears to be completely untouched. You get a feeling of being in a place where there are few traces of mankind.
Closed in winter
The road is closed in winter but the stretch from Aurlandsvangen is open as far as the viewing point at Stegastein all year round.
