Suleskard road from Sirdal to Setesdal

This scenic road is only open in the summer - the snow is deep through the winter and around easter time it is close to the route of Sesilaami - an annual major long-distance ski race, held before Easter.
Starting by Ådneram and Suleskar in upper Sirdal, the road climbs up and over the plateau and down again into Setesdal to join RV 9 south of Valle.

first weekend in September the sheep are gathered up This is not just a summer tourist road - it makes the journey to Oslo a couple of hours shorter, so there are trucks and coaches as well as cars using it.
There are several places to stop along the way, with walks or picnic spots - even on sandy beaches by the edge of some of the lakes, so you can enjoy the unique environment, not just use it as a gateway to the other side.
From the east end highway 9 goes south through Byglandsfjord (Revsnes Hotel) and Evje to Kristiansand; north to Hovden and the E134 road; or east on RV 45 to Dalen (Dalen Hotel) and Telemark.
On the west side, the RV 45 goes west to Sandnes and Stavanger with many hotels, or south on FV 468 to Tonstad.
