Can't miss this if you're in Norway. Just so you can say you've been to the longest tunnel in the world!!!

During our trip to Norway we needed to get from Flåm to Sogndal and had a choice of traveling by either ferry or bus. We chose the bus as it had more friendly departure times, departing every 90 minutes, and would allow us the opportunity to check off another of our want-to-do-while-in-Norway things off our list; namely, drive or ride...

I salute the daredevil engineers who made this tunnel a reality. It's a true engineering marvel. Driving through almost 150+ tunnels on my trip across Norway; I was close to getting claustrophobic. But this being the longest kept me hooked on with the amazing light display at every 6km interval. There is a place to park near the caves and... More

You drive through this tunnel which is 25km long. There are 3 blue lit stopping ares at equal points along it. No tolls. Although there are speed cameras. It is a tunnel that is part of the road/highway system.

Normally I wouldn't count in road tunnels as attractions, however this is the longest in the world, 24,5 km. It's a fantastic piece of engineering, and it's equipped with three illuminated halls, to break the monotony (the locals use to party in them). The tunnel replaces Aurlandfjellet mountain pass (with Stegastein), which is a better and way more time consuming... More

Not sure why Trip Advisor offers a rating on this. It's a very long tunnel that gets you from Flåm to Lærdal. Glad I don't have to drive this everyday. Very long and hypnotic. Kids loved the blue party lights in the tunnel every 6km.

well, we did this twice ! First time, we were en route to Aurland, and the tunnel popped us nicely out beside the town. The second time, we had decided to travel the "snow road" (fabulous drive !) out of Aurland, taking in the Stegastein look out on the way, and so we came back to Aurland through the tunnel... More

You don't expect to go on a vacation to Norway and come back bragging about a tunnel, but you will. This is the longest road tunnel in the world, at 24.5 km (just over 15-miles), through a solid granite mountain, and shaving some four hours off of the trip from Bergen to Norway. There are three "caves" spaced at intervals,... More

My visit was actually a few years ago; the tunnels in Norway were a big surprise to me as on a previous visit as a 1980s inter-railer the journey from Laerdal to our next stop had taken many hours on a bus along winding gravel roads and a ferry or two. Now the main highway from Oslo to Bergen passes... More

We traveled too early in the season to take the Aurlandsfjellet so we went through the Laerdalstunnelen a few times. While creating a tunnel this long is an incredible accomplishment, it is still a tunnel. It makes travel more efficient and are some colorful areas to stop if one is interested.
