LYSEBOTN ROAD

On the top you can see Øygardsstøl. The trail from Øygardsstøl by Lysevegen road above Lysebotn is demanding. Allow 4 - 6 hours for the 1O km hike, which climbs 570 metres. Good shoes and physical health are advised. The truly adventurous climb up the precipitous rock faces or parachute from the top. Enjoy their stunts standing safely on the deck of a boat.

The Lysebotn road has become another great tourist attraction, almost through coincidence; it was built as part of the power station project and not with tourists in mind. The road has 27 hairpin curves and a drop of 950 metres. The last section of road passes through a 1100 metres tunnel.
