The theme for this year

The route over Valdresflye  

The route over Valdresflye

:

The route over Valdresflye provides a wide panorama view of the mountain plateau and over to the Jotunheimen national park. The highest point on this route from Garli to Besstronds?ter is 1389 metres above sea level.

Gamle Strynefjellsvegen  

Gamle Strynefjellsvegen

:

Gamle Strynefjellsvegen between Grotli and Vides?ter is more than 100 years old. This road has always been closed in the winter. Until the 1950s the road was cleared manually in preparation for the summer. For weeks, 200 men shovelled their way forward mile by mile, leaving metre-high banks of snow behind them. Today, the work is done in a few days by modern rotary snow cutters.

The Sognefjell tourist route  

The Sognefjell tourist route

:

The Sognefjell tourist route makes its way from Sognefjord to Boverdalen across the roof of Norway through high mountains with blue ice, jagged peaks and emerald green lakes. At Fantesteinen, 1434 metres above sea level, the route traverses the highest pass in Northern Europe.

The Geiranger

The Helgelandskysten nord route  

The Helgelandskysten nord route

:

The Helgelandskysten nord route, from Storvik to Stokkvagen on the north coast of Helgeland, winds its way past mountains and glaciers and affords a fantastic view of sea and islands. From the road it is possible to see Svartisen (the Black Ice).

The Lofoten tourist route  

The Lofoten tourist route

:

The contrasts between the dramatic and the idyllic, between jagged mountains, white beaches and emerald green sea are what give Lofoten its special appeal. The Lofoten tourist route runs through part of this landscape, from Fiskebol to A.
