Tindevegen

Tindevegen, a steep paved Norwegian road

Tindevegen is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 1.322m (4,337ft) above the sea level, located in Sogn og Fjordane county, in Norway. The road to the summit is paved but pretty narrow and steep, hitting a 12.5% through some of the ramps.

The road to the summit is called Tindevegen. It’s 32 km long and links Øvre Årdal deep in Sognefjord to Turtagrø in Jotunheimen. The road is a toll road open from May to November. It’s suitable for cars, RV and small buses. It’s closed to vehicles up to 10 m in length. Just a short walk from the road, you can enjoy fantastic panoramic views of the Hurrungane peaks and Store Skagastølstind mountain in the east, and of the inner reaches of the Sognefjord and Skjolden in the west.

It is a spectacular and beautiful road with hairpin turns and breathtaking views. The drive is definitely worth it. A drive not to be missed! The road offers great views of magnificent scenery and the impressive peaks of the Jotunheimen mountains. The road is the shortest alternative route between Bergen and Trondheim that doesn’t involve a ferry, and is an attraction in itself. This scenic tourist road is also referred to as the “Roof of Norway” and the “Shortcut through Jotunheimen”. The road offers stunning nature and several beautiful viewpoints.
