There is a breath of history over the name Norangsdalen. At the turn of the century tourist ships anchored up at Øye. Many a famous name was transported by pony and trap along me ancient road through the valley to Hellesylt. After the "Silver Cruise" in 1993 to celebrate the Silver Wedding of the King and Queen
of Norway, Norangsdalen was given the name "The Queen's Route".
It is a valley rich in spectacular scenery and cultural memories. The lake known as Lygnstøylvatnet was formed by a rock fall from Keipen in 1908. Beneath the waters of the lake you can still see the remains of the old road, the foundations of the farmhouses and the gateway.
