This is one of the official tourist roads of Norway. It takes you past farms and apple orchards through some very lovely scenery on mostly good roads. Theres a climb and descent midway with some nice hairpins and twists through the forest. Some sections are bumpy, but not too bad. You can buy apples, cherries and plums from roadside stands, practically fresh off the tree.
You can also visit the summer ski resort at Folgefonna glacier, about 15 km from Jondal. Dont worry about skiing, youll just break an ankle. Get yourself a nice lefse (delicious sweet pastry) in Jondal and enjoy it with a cup of coffee and a view of the glacier.
This is one of those routes which is made for the Adventure-crowd. If you have a GS or similar bike, you need to do it! No gravel, but tons and tons of bends.
At one point the road passes over a Dam. Steep hills. Spectacular views.
Kurvig och fin väg med ett trevligt café vid slutdestinationen. Rätt nylagd asfalt gör ju inte saken sämre.. ;)
A very little travelled route. It is practically not used,
as even the locals rarely travel between the two towns,
but rather towards Drammen or Oslo (and other routes are shorter).
In former days this was part of the Round the Tyri Fjord rally. Today it is mostly good for a sight-seeing tour of the South of the Fjord (which is really a lake). Can and should be combined with a round-the-lake itinerary.
A great alternative to the much more travelled routes between Oslo and
Trondheim (E6 or E3). Basically, a diversion from the E6.
At Ringebu take off up the hill to the East (left).
Soon you are on the naked mountain, with great vistas to behold.
The route passes through a National Park, and has multiple mountain lakes and ponds with plenty fish. There is also lots of wildlife - make sure you dont hit any of them!
One stopping-place in particular is beautiful. Look for the sign for special Sight.
Note: The route is not open all year, but should be for most of the biking-season)
