Haukeliekspressen in wintertime

Haukeliekspressen travels over the Haukelifjell mountain pass where the weather can sometimes be challenging. This can result in delays and traffic jams, and this is something you need to take into account when planning your journey. When mountain passes are closed due to the weather, buses run as normal to Åmot and turn around there, while buses from Haugesund run as normal to Røldal and turn around there. Stay updated on traffic information here.
