Røldalsfjellet is a mountain pass at an elevation of 1.125m (3,690ft) above the sea level, located in Hordaland county, Norway.
The road to the summit is asphalted but it suffers the harsh meteorological conditions of the area every winter. It’s called Røldalsfjellet Turistveg (old 134 road). It’s closed from October to June (weather permitting). The drive provides a good view towards Røldal and Odda mountains. Look out for sheeps along the way.
Due its narrowness, the road is only suitable for cars (2.2m limit). It was completed in 1884. It’s pretty steep, with a maximum gradient of 11.7% via 8 sharp hairpin turns, so take it slow. Due its dangerousness it was bypassed by a tunnel called Røldalstunnelen.
