Discovering and photographing the unknown beauty of Europe
After our trip to the south, we decided to go west again and drive on the Lysebotnvegen. Lysebotn was the name of our destination, the word “vegen” means road:
Driving on this road was one of the most fantastic experiences we had this summer. The road is 29 km long and has 27 hairpin bends. It connects Sirdal with Lysebotn, which is at the bottom of the Lysefjord. The highest point is about 900 m. above sea level.
The Lysebotnvegen is closed during winter and is only open during 5 months of the year. It has the reputation of being very misty, but we had sunny weather when we were there. The road can be very narrow at times, so you often have to stop to let drivers coming from the opposite direction pass.
