Very pretty, with stunning views of the Geirangerfjord. The necessary tourist traffic, but no speeders. You can see the beautiful hairpins from Geiranger, during the climb actually not. ... read more

Heel fraai, met schitterende uitzichten op de Geirangerfjord.
Het nodige toeristische verkeer, maar geen snelheidsduivels.
De mooie haarspelden zie je vanuit Geiranger liggen, tijdens de klim eigenlijk niet.

For a few days now, I have been looking forward to the hairpin bends uphill from our campsite. After the Dalsnibba, I could not restrain myself any longer and added it to my list. Wonderful!

Al een paar dagen keek ik uit op de haarspeldbochten omhoog vanaf onze kampeerplek. Na de Dalsnibba kon ik me niet meer inhouden en heb hem erachteraan geplakt. Prachtig!

It doesn't get much better than this in Norway. Beautiful climb with lots of hairpin bends and great views of the Geirangerfjord (UNESCO world heritage). The road can be a bit busy because of the tourist traffic. The climb is not too long, but quite steep.

Veel mooier wordt het niet in Noorwegen. Prachtige klim met veel haarspeldbochten en mooie uitzichten op het Geirangerfjord (UNESCO-werelderfgoed). De weg kan wel wat drukker zijn door het toeristische verkeer. De klim is niet overdreven lang, maar wel aardig steil.
