Taking the scenic routes also means taking the narrow roads and a lot of time. Not only is it mountainous but the road frequently narrows to single lane. This takes lot of concentration and as it turns out being right hand drive actually makes it easier to hug the road edge. Twice we have had to fold in the side mirror in order to get past a bus or such like. The weather continues unseasonably fine and our luck will have to end sometime.
This is a must see place with tremendous views from the side of a Fjord. It takes 2 hours to walk to the top and we used even minute allocated. It was a Saturday and the number of people was astounding. Also astounding was the ages of those who walk up - very elderly, mothers carrying toddlers in backpacks and lots of people bring their dogs. I had said once before they take their dogs everywhere and this was no exception. The walk up was mostly rough track of rocks with an occasionally flat portion - but mostly up. The rock towers 604 meters above the Lysefjord - straight down.
The other thing of note. No warning signs, no fences or barriers.
