Old road from Giljastølen to Frafjord
about 2000, a new tunnel was built through the mountain from Gilja to
Frafjord. The old road used to go over the top (Giljastølen) and
snake down the mountain side to Frafjord.

Please be sensible - make sure your bikes are well-maintained, and don't go too fast in case of something unexpected up ahead. The road is almost blocked on one bend by rubble.

From the bottom, Månafossen waterfall is only a few minutes away by car, and Gloppedal with its glacial terminal moraine, and Byrkjedal kro with good food, candle shop and dipping and farm buildings are a few minutes up the valley from Gilja.
