Gallery folder contains 40 images

High in the Jotunheimen Mountains, the Sognefjell Road runs between the Sognefjord, the world’s second longest fjord, and Gudbrandsdalen.

The Sognefjell Road is the highest and most impressive mountain pass in Northern Europe (highest point 1,434 metres above sea level). Along the way you will find more records: Galdhøpiggen, Norway's highest mountain, and mainland Norway's largest glacier, Jostedalsbreen.

It has been awarded the status national tourist route because of the spectacular and wild mountain scenery it passes through. The road is also an important part of the famous bicycle race Tour de Jotunheimen.

In January 2007, the British newspaper The Guardian named the Sognefjell Road one of the top ten bike rides in the world. According to the paper "the high mountain road is enveloped in an icy beauty that is out of this world".
