Hjølmoberget is a mountain pass at an elevation of 849m above the sea level, located within the Hardangervidda National Park, in the Conty of Hordaland, in central southern Norway.
The very steep serpentine road to the summit is asphalted but pretty steep (with sections up to 14.5%) and pretty narrow. Buses with more than 20 seats should not try this road. In winter, road conditions over the mountains change from hour to hour and often you will find yourself driving in a convoy behind large snowploughs striving to clear the road for drivers. In bad weather, the road may be completely closed. Winter tires are required during the winter. Starting from Eidfjord (Ovre), the ascent is 8.57 km long. Over this distance, the elevation gain is 816 meters. The average percentage is 9.5 %.
