Explore one of Norways most beautiful valleys

Norang valley is one of the narrowest valleys in Norway, rich in spectacular sceneries and cultural landmarks. 

The valley bears the scars of the battle against the forces of nature. At lake Jelskred, the bottom of the valley is full of scree. At Urasætra and Stavbergsætra, the houses were built into the ground as protection against landslides. The lake known as Lygnstøylvatnet was formed by a rock fall from Keipen in 1908. Beneath the waters of the lake, you can still see remains of the old road, the foundations of the farmhouses and the gateway.

Norangsdalen has been a path of discovery for generations. At the turn of the 18th century, ships anchored up at Øye. Adventurers, mountain pioners and notables was transported by horse and carrage along the ancient road through Norang valley to Hellesylt. And after the King and Queen of Norway celebrated their Silver wedding right here, Norangsdalen was given the name "The Queen Route".
