Aursjøvegen Mountain Road
Aursjøvegen - from fjord to fjord crossing rugged mountains. Aursjøvegen is a road to high mountains and wild valleys, intoxicating waterfalls, rock pools, power history, marked hiking trails and the great outdoors.
For thousands of years, people have crossed the mountains between Sunndal and Eikesdalsvatnet. On the endless plains roams muskox, caribou and wolverine. Aursjøvegen road is a wonderful experience!
Straight from Sunndalsøra the road ascends up the narrow Litldalen with the wild river on the valley floor. The waterfalls cascades into a free fall from 1900 meters altitude. The road twists and bends and lifts you up on the plateau. Here you find Aursjøhytta cabin which invites you to a good meal and a good bed. Aursjøvegen road curves along the border of Dovre - and Sunndalsfjella National Park. 400 meters easy walk from the road you are suddenly on the edge of Aurstupet, treat yourself to this view! Finsetlia with the tightest turns and views make more famous mountain roads "jealous." In Eikesdalen you find one of the world's highest waterfalls, Mardalsfossen (open 20.06 -20.08).
Along Aursjøvegen there are several organized hiking trails, lookouts and picnic areas. Aursjøen and other lakes are suitable for fishing and canoeing. Litldalen is known for its demanding climbing routes and ice climbing in winter.
On the mountain you will find an extensive walking grid and many that this is the best area for hiking in Norway.
