Route 8 is the coastal route which is one of our longest but still not so challenging to drive. You drive along the Sognefjord to Lavik and on on narrow roads to Leirvik and on to Salbu (just before Sørbøvågen).
From here, the road goes through the charming "forest" on narrow roads to Hellevik. Maybe you make a stop in Dale and take a flick across the spectacular Dalsfjord Bridge? Now the trip continues Sande, through Ytredalen to Vadheim where you get high mountains on both sides of the valley floor. From Vadheim to Balestrand you drive along the Sognefjord and we really recommend a stop in the industrial city of Høyanger with its long and relevant industrial history with processing of Hydro's aluminum products as an industrial support.
