The Gaularfjellet drive is an amazing road which skirts 14 Waterfalls along the route. Take the time to do some hiking and stop to see the views along the way. Incredible green everywhere and water cascading along the highway with convenient pull-outs. Not heavily travelled.

This is an excellent and short scenic road, worth one h detour if you are driving the north shores of Sognefjorden. The road ascends to a 800 meter pass after going trough farms and lakes: ideal for picnic and photography.
