 The Knot  
Knuten, the Knot The unique road construction in Ørjasæter known as the Knot (Knuten) remains as it was when it was opened 1882. It was built in conjunction with the Geirangervegen road in order to gain height and to conquer difficult terrain. The stone construction displays outstanding engineering work and is an important reminder of the pioneers who built Geirangervegen. It is part of the old road from Geiranger, and today is still driveable.
