Description

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. The road leading through the valley up to Fossli was built with impressive masonry and completed in 1916. The road is widely used by pedestrians and cyclists today and it is regarded as a good example of early 20th-century road engineering.
