Breathtaking view from Ornevegen, Norway.

Ørnevegen – Eagle Road – is the name given to the steepest stretch of road up the mountain side from Geiranger towards Eidsdal on road no. 63.

The road swings through 11 hairpin bends up from the Geirangerfjord and to the highest point on the stretch, 620 metres above sea level at Korsmyra.

The road was an attraction from the very first day, and was called Eagle Road because at its highest point it passed through terrain that had traditionally been the domain of a large number of eagles.

The name also reflects the wildness, the spectacular that tourists and others using the road will experience, especially if they stop at Ørnesvingen, the highest of the hairpins.

Beautiful image and with the ship as scale it really shows how massive this Fjord is. The streams of light really set it off.
