Sit back and relax in a nice comfy coach seat and enjoy the view while we take you on the historical route known as the Discovery Route (National Road 13).

The Discovery Route has been in existence since the 1880s. At that time, tourists travelled by horse and cart to experience the magnificent landscape with its majestic mountains, cascading waterfalls, crystal-clear rivers, pure fjords and imposing glaciers. Fortunately, transport is much more comfortable now than it was back then. But the scenery remains just as beautiful. This landscape now forms the basis for a unique and varied range of outdoor activities and experiences.

Sights on the trip

  • Låtefossen waterfall

    The powerful 165-metre high waterfall is located just outside Odda. This waterfall is one of Norway's most popular nature-based tourist attractions. A hotel once stood at the foot of the waterfall at the time British and German travellers visited the area by horse and cart in the 1880s. You can now see the remains of the foundations where the hotel once stood on the south side of the waterfall. 

    The powerfull Låtefoss is running down the mountainside in the summer time with a historic stone bridge with two arches is located by the foot of it.
  • Discovery Route


    The historic excursion route along national highway 13 through the district of Ryfylke invites you to an encounter with Fjord Norway in the shape of a varied, beautiful and lush landscape where the well-maintained cultural landscape gives way to scree, polished cliffs, fjords and mountains.
