Gamle Strynefjellsveg is something special. It’s probably Norway’s oldest tourist road, and links east and west in the most beautiful way possible!

Its partly gravel, partly tarmac – but managable even if gravel is not your domain. The road took 10 years to complete and was finnshed in 1894 – more than 125 years ago. It’s narrow with few meeting places – perfect for bikers! It goes between Grotli on the east side and continues to Videseter on the west side. The road is 27 km long and is a MUST if you go east/west or west/east along E15 anyways. Set aside enough time, as there are many places you will want to stop to admire the view.

Also make sure to drop by Hjelle on the west side. On the dock is where to original road started and its a really cute little place that you will remember.

Winter notice: The route is closed during the winter season. It is normally closed in October and reopens in June.

    Fantastic road! Fair bit of gravel. It’s a “must” if you’re driving anywhere near – well worth a 1-day detour if you’re further away.
