The road was opened in 1967, and its forerunner was a construction access road. The road runs from
Laerdalsoeyri to Aurlandsvangen over the mountains and the highest point is 1,306 meters above sea level.
The Aurlandsvegen road between Aurland and Laerdal is open from the 1st of June to the mid-October
when snow starts to cover the road. Snow lies along the mountain road throughout large parts during
the summer, so it is the other name of 'the snow road'. In the early June, the snow banks can get up to
be 10-meter high.
