The world's longest road tunnel from Aurland to Laerdal

At 24.5 kilometres, the Lærdal tunnel is the world's longest road tunnel. The road links Aurland and Lærdal, in the heart of Sogn, and provides a ferry-free connection between Oslo and Bergen.


Popular round trip through the world's longest road tunnel

A round trip full of contrasts is to drive through the Lærdal Tunnel, then stop by the fjord in Flåm, and return over the stunning Aurlandsfjellet plateau on the popular Snow Road between Aurlandsvangen and Lærdalsøyri. This is an opportunity to experience the mountain from both outside and in!

If you have time, you should visit the 800-year-old Borgund Stave Church in Lærdal, one of the most visited and photographed stave churches.  Borgund Stave Church and its visitor centre are open from May – September. In the centre, there is information about the stave church heritage, an exhibition, café and shop.
