"Laerdalstunnel - the longest streettunnel on earth" Norway Transportation Tip by globetrott

Norway Transportation: 216 reviews and 187 photos


Laerdalstunnel with a total length of 24,5 km is the longest street-tunnel on earth ! Just be prepared that you have to drive through it around half an hour, when you take the speed-limits seriously. The good part of it: you will hardly meet any other cars there, except at special times, overtaking is allowed at many places, and it is also quite safe, because oncoming trafic can be seen a long time in advance.
This tunnel is about 10km from Borgund and when you arrive from the west, you will most probably drive through this tunnel !
Lærdalstunnelen is using a special kind of "light-show" to keep the drivery "busy" and attentive, and what is even more surprisising:
This tunnel is totally free of charge !
