I believe this is one of the longest tunnels in Norway. I was traveling with family and I've never been in a tunnel like this before, so it was very interesting. I'm sure if you are claustrophobic you might not like it.

It is a tunnel. It is very long, 24 kilometeres. I think it is still the longes tunnel for cartraffic in the world. In took five years to be finished - opened i 2000, and cost 1 billion norwegian kroner.

The worlds longest tunnel for cars. Very long! In 3 places the tunnel expands to caves with blue lightning, which is a nice variation to the endless soft curve.

Tunnels in Norway can be kilometres long, 15 minutes or more to drive through is not uncommon, but this one was special. Seemingly to counteract the driving fatigue, the lighting in 2 sections at roundabouts was remarkable. Good one Norway, great example.
