Kjeåsen Mountain Farm/Tunnel

Kjeåsen Mountain Farm/Tunnel, the world’s most inaccessible farm

Kjeåsen Mountain Farm is a famous farm in Eidfjord, a municipality in Hordaland county, Norway. It’s called the world’s most inaccessible farm.

According to several sources, it has been a farm here for 400 years. The now famous mountain farm lies like an eagle's nest on a mountain ledge 530 meters above sea level on the north side of Simadalsfjorden next to Eidfjord in the inner Hardangerfjord. The road to Kjeåsen was built in 1975 to provide access to hydroelectricity developments. It’s 5 km long. Half of the road (2,2km) goes through a one-way tunnel without light. You can drive up on the hour: ex 09, 10, 11... and down 0930, 1030, 1130... The tunnel and road is not big enough for two cars. At the foot of the steep road, a sign warns that a narrow tunnel lies ahead. Although the tunnel is open 24 hours, the latest you should drive up to the farm is 5pm, so as to respect the privacy of Kjeåsen's inhabitant. The tunnel is 2,2 km long. There is no lighting in this tunnel, so only thing here you can depend on, are the headlights of your car. The road is very narrow so the traffic is restricted: every half an hour you can go one direction, and another half an hour - the opposite.
