Øvre Eidfjord Old Road

Øvre Eidfjord Old Road, a unique piece of engineering

Located in Hordaland county, Norway, the old Road along the Eidfjord Lake to Øvre Eidfjord is a very scenic drive.

The road is asphalted, but closed to vehicles. Only bicycles and pedestrian are allowed. This famous road is a unique piece of engineering. The drive is definitely worth it. There are many excellent photo opportunities here. Don’t forget your camera! Ride through old tunnels, once used by motor vehicles, including one opened by King Oscar II. You will stop at sightseeing points to enjoy the vistas before arriving at Øvre Eidfjord.
The old road beside EidfjordLake was bypassed by a modern road. The new road is wider and has many more tunnels to replace the narrow, old road and all its hairpin turns.
