To cap off this thrilling day, you will travel the Gamle Strynefjellsvegen, the old mountain road. Not only staggeringly beautiful, this scenic route from Western Norway to the eastern part of Southern Norway is also designated as a listed road. The road itself is a landmark and a testimony to a masterpiece of engineering design from a bygone time. Built by manual labor towards the end of the 19th century, it conveys a historical presence. Old stone masonry and long rows of guard stones provide a sense of journeying backwards in time. The old road offers imposing contrasts in the landscape: to the east rounded shapes bearing the stamp of the ice age and to the west precipitous mountainsides.
Looking for the most scenic views in Norway with the chance to take stunning postcard-worthy photos and dine in nature, then this is the tour for you. Reserve your spot on this private excursion today and get ready for a full day of unforgettable experiences while you make memories to last a lifetime!
