Norway's most beautiful cycling route
Rallarvegen has repeatedly been named Norway’s Most Beautiful Cycling Route and is visited each summer by around 25,000 cyclists from all over the world.
In 1894, the Norwegian Parliament decided to have a railway constructed between Christiania (now Oslo) and Bergen. First, however, it was necessary to build a construction road (Rallarvegen) which would be used to transport materials and workers, (known as “rallarer”) up in the mountain. In summer 1974, Rallarvegen was reopened as a cycling route.
