Norway’s Stunning Mountain Road Trip
What was once a critical north-south link over the Norwegian mountains is today the gateway to some of Norway’s best outdoor experiences. At one end, the mountain ski resort of Beitostølen. At the other, Norway’s tallest mountains in Jotunheimen National Park. But soaring to 1,389 meters (4,557 feet) above sea level, the 49km (30 miles) long Valdresflye road is also a tourist attraction in itself.
Valdresflye is one of the 18 designated Norwegian Scenic Routes, a long-term program of investment by the Norwegian Public Roads Administration (NPRA) designed to manage and improve the driving experience in scenic areas.
