Snow Road is the old road between Aurdal and Lærdal. From the year 2000 when the world longest tunnel (24,5 km ) between the two cities was opened, this is only the tourist attraction. In the middle of summer the snow still exist, and I can not imagine how it looks in the middle of winter time.

This is an spectacular View Point at 650 meter above the fjord. It is situated close to the old National Tourist Road between the Lærdal and Aurland. This road name is The Snow Road. The view is of course so spectacular in every kind of weather. On the picture, like You see, is a cloudy time, but later I will present some pictures taken in sunshine.
The view point – Stegastein…
