Tusenmeteren is a 1000 meter gravel road that starts near the town of Øvre Årdal and climbs up   42 hairpin corners until you reach an impressive viewpoint overlooking the town and fjord. The road then follows the edge of a mountain range along and down a valley until you reach the main road that can either take you back to Øvre or onwards east. The mountain views are some of the most impressive, with many of the highest mountains in Norway on offer. This is perhaps the best gravel in Norway and is worth every opportunity to cycle it.
