The standard of roads

The entire National Park Route is asphalted. Some stretches are windy and narrow, but offer great views!

Road tolls

There are no road tolls on the National Park Route itself, but if you travel on graval roads you may have to pay a toll duty in cash. There are only a few places where you can pay by card. The fee start at 30 kroners. We therefore recommend that you keep some coins available in the car.
