Independant of which direction you approach this gigantic over-sized scree the scenary is breathtaking, dramatic, grey and daunting. Rocks larger than houses fell from the high mountains surrounding this narrow valley forming this natural wonder - the largest scree in Northern Europe! A narrow road...More

Love the view and the historical significance. Thinking back to how it must've felt for the Norwegian forces fighting off the Germans during WWII gives a special eerie feeling to the place.

The drive through this area is amazing. I found myself cruising along through with not another car to be seen. On the northern side I stopped on the side of the road (in August) and found the bushy area to be covered with blue berries!

Amazing sudden change in landscape as you drive along the road, as though you landed on the moon. Few scenic spots to stop for great photographic opportunities. Definitely worth a stop if you are nearby.

Not designed for a long visit, 5 minutes is plenty of time. The rocks are huge and it is the site of a well known WW2 battle.

about 10.000 years ago the mountains collapsed and divided the fjord in 2 parts. Rocks as big as a house came down and now you have to opportunity to walk in between.... Great view and the drive up there from Stavanger give you a good...More
