Gamle Strynefjellsvegen

Stryn is a good base to explore several scenic drives in the region. From my beautiful apartment with a view, I set off early to Gamle Strynefjellsvegen.



Along the way, the road skirts the southern edge of Oppstrynsvatn, offering good lake and mountain views that are worth a stop or two.





The Gamle Strynefjellsvegen was built to cater for tourists in 1894. It took Swedish immigrants over 10 years to build this mountain road, and a team of some 200 people kept it clear during the winter up until the 1950s. Although 27km long, prepare to spend a few hours slowly enjoying the drive and making many stops along this national scenic route.
