Attraction along Hardangervidda


Måbødalen is a narrow, steep and scenic valley that reaches from Eidfjord up to the Hardangervidda plateau. In ancient times, a number of roads passed through the Måbødalen valley. To ease the journey for travellers, 1,500 stone steps were added in the 1780s. The road leading through the valley up to Fossli was built with impressive masonry and completed in 1916. The old road can still be explored on foot. The modern roadway through Måbødalen consists of a number of tunnels, but there are many interesting vantage points and places to make a stop.
