Finding us Driving Directions.

Not all roads will lead to Lysebotn and Kjerag, so we’d like to give you some directions. Please, keep in mind that Norwegian roads are often both curvy and very narrow and that these roads will also be used by heavy vehicles. Tunnels are common. Long tunnels, that is.
And be aware that roadside speed cameras are common – speed limits are among Europe’s lowest, while the reactions are certainly among Europe’s toughest.
The road to Lysebotn is very narrow and curvy; so narrow that it does not open until mid/late spring. A tunnel with a 180° curve inside the mountain has also been thrown in for effect.
