Description of selected climb
One of the very hardest and most scenic climbs in Norway. Starting at sea level in Aurland - and reaching the top of Nalfarhøgda at 1300 m above sea after 16,5 kms. Beautiful views of the fiords along the climb. Barren mountain at the top. Very steady climb at 7-8 per cent gradient. Mostly touristic traffic. Good surfaced road all the way. Open from end of May/beginning of June until mid October. After the top road crosses in wild and barren mountain - before dropping down to Lærdal at the other side (see climb Lærdal-Aurland).
