Norwegian Scenic Route Sognefjellet runs from Lom to Gaupne, a total distance of 108 km (Road 55).

If you start from Lom, the lush cultural landscape of Bøverdalen gives you glimpses of high mountains in the far distance, as the road slowly climbes through the valley. Without too much effort, you climb to 1,434 metres, making the road northern Europe’s highest mountain pass.

At the Mefjellet stop you will find Knut Wold’s stone sculpture which allows you to view the mountain landscape from a different perspective.

On the other side of the mountain towards Gaupne, the road is steep and somehow more wild. Where the Hurrungane massif towers up to the heavens the mountains suddenly open up and the landscape changes once again. Towards Gaupne, the final point on this stretch, the road descends to skirt the beautiful Sognefjord with clear waters.

Winter notice:  The mountain road from Rustasætre/Vegaskjelet to Turtagrø is normally closed in November and reopens in May.
