Geiranger, Dalsnibba og Oerneveien
Road 63 from Eidsdal to road 15 at Strynefjellet. Stranda, Moere og Romsdal. Norway. 49 km. 1476 m.a.s.l.
Geiranger is fantastic with the steep mountains plunging straight into the deep green fjord. In summer, it is characterized by intense tourist traffic and tourists come both by sea and by land. That means heavy traffic in the summer months. Most cruise tourists take a bus ride to Oerneveien (The Eagleroad), Trollstigen and Dalsnibba when they go ashore. So be aware, you are not alone on these roads in the summer months.
Coming from the north via Trollstigen and the ferry between Linge and Eidsdal Geiranger is naturally on the route, and you get a good view of fjord and Geiranger from Oerneveien. Take a break at the new picnic area and enjoy the view.
At Djupvasshytta I would recommend a detour to Dalsnibba. This is gravel road and with 11 hairpins that takes you to the top of Dalsnibba at 1476 meters above sea level. At the top you have (depending on the weather) a perfect view of the surrounding mountains, the Geiranger fjord and Ørneveien.
This route can be combined with the route over Trollstigen.
