Description

This stretch of road, from Suleskar to Brokke, is known as Southwest Norway’s highest altitude road connection and takes you over the mountains to Dalen. Follow E39 to Ålgård, then drive Fv45 past Dirdal in Høgsfjord and through enchanting Hunnedalen. On the way here you should stop at Byrkjedalstunet for some good, traditional Norwegian food. Or make a detour to Frafjord and Månafossen waterfall. To get to the waterfall, follow the well-marked path. It is about 30 minutes to walk. Månafossen is situated in Frafjordheiene Scenic Reserve, which has marked hiking trails and several tourist lodges. If you want to stay in comfortable and traditional accommodation you could stay at Byrkjedalstunet. Another advisable detour is to visit Gloppedalsura before travelling on to Sirdal and over the alpine range, to Brokke in Setesdal. From there you can go to Rotemo, where the road Fv 45 will take you through the mountains and down to Dalen. The scenery is varied and dramatic, with the road’s highest point reaching 1050 m. Suleskarvegen truly invites you to take it slow, stop and enjoy the scenery. Be swept away by the sight of majestic alpine mountains that stretch in front of you, an unfolding marvel. 460 km long trip. Closed during winter season.
