The protected Gaular waterway, with its many lively rapids and waterfalls and shining lakes, is like a row of pearls along the road. The drive is exciting and varied, along narrow fjords, on twisting roads up steep mountainsides, over high mountains to sheltered valleys.

The route offers a peaceful alternative to the main roads between Sogn and Sunnfjord. Here children and adults can experience trout fishing at its best and wander on good paths beside waterfalls and rapids. It is also possible to rent a boat or take a walk in the mountains. In Balestrand there are museums and galleries and a wide selection of services.

Gaularfjellet National Tourist Route runs between Balestrand and Moskog and is 84 kilometres in length.
