Originally a worker’s path for the workers of the Tjodan hydroelectric power plant, Lysevegen is now a very popular route that takes you from the Lysebotn harbour to the car park at Øygardstøl, where you usually head for the famous Kjerag ‘glassy’ stone with 31 turns and 638 metres of elevation gain.

The road then continues to Lake Andersvatn, which is 950 metres above sea level.

Lysebotn is only open in summer, depending on snow conditions from about (second half of) May to (very) late October.
