A nice selection of switchbacks through some great scenary. Because of it's tight and twisty nature, it's difficult to exceed the speed limit seriously and so makes a nice exception from the expensive speeding fines in this country!!
Nice alternative to the dangerous & boring E18. Tvedestrand is a very charming small town, where one should stop for a coffee and peruse the bookshops. Arendal is bigger and has more hotels, restaurants and nightlife.
One of Norway's most spectacular routes.
The route is typically open from early May to October/November,
otherwise winter closed.
Riding it early in the season,
one can have several meters high
snow banks and close to dry road.
Be aware of icing tendencies/slippery

Start by turning left after the bridge in Bykle, you will get some nice corners on asphalt, a small and nice beach on the right for a refreshing cooldown and BBQing. After this you will hit Skarg water energy facility that was opened in 2015. After a quick look you start on the gravel road to ...
substantial route..miles upon miles of road to play on...too varied to list up on here... the final 2hrs or so into Stavanger is outstanding...big wide fast sweepers..great viz..2 and 3 corners ahead are pretty much always in sight allowing you to unleash plenty of power.... its been 7 years now sin...
Take the inner route to go from south to east in Norway!
Compared to the coastal E-18 which have an overload of traffic
cams, police, 60 km/h speed limits and huge loads of traffic,
this route offers you a variety of mostly narrow, curvy roads
with many really nice bends, mixed with some lon...
Very nice route, with lots of great scenery
(mountain lakes, valley gorges, waterfalls, etc).
You can stop in Dalen and stay at the historical hotel,
built in a Dragon/Fairytale-style www.dalenhotel.no.
Warning: The road condition on this route is a total disgrace!
The condition is definitely worst on the Vest-Agder side of the county border.
Imagine riding on a washboard :-( Unless you are in for some serious
spine-exercise this should be avoided.
And that is a shame really, because the ...
Route with some really nice high speed curves
combined with some smaller villages with nice cafes.
Good warm-up for the route Suleskar-Brokke (http://www.suleskarvegen.no/).
Bikers meet on Wednesday afternoon at the cafe at Gjestal or do the
extra trip to Byrkjedalstunet where you could also...
Nice costal route from Kristiansand Westwards. This is the very first bit of the Nordsjøvegen. Have a look at www.nordsjovegen.no for more information about a great way to travel from Kristiansand to Haugesund, and to stay away from the boring/horrible/dangerous E39.
Built as part of a hydro electric scheme this road goes over the top of a mountain and the last bit is app 15 km and drops 900 metres to the valley floor with 27 hairpin bends (1 in a tunnel) if you,re in this area don,t miss this road
