The Jondal Tunnel (Norwegian: Jondalstunnelen) is a road tunnel in the Hardanger region of Hordaland county, Norway. The tunnel is part of Norwegian County Road 107. The 10.4-kilometre (6.5 mi) long tunnel was built to offer a better route between the cities of Bergen and Oslo. Cars can drive from Bergen to Tørvikbygda, then take a ferry to Jondal, then go through this tunnel, then a short drive to the Folgefonna Tunnel before getting to the town of Odda. From there it is a short drive to the European route E134 highway which leads to Oslo.
Work on the tunnel began in October 2009. The tunnel was opened on 7 September 2012 by Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg. The project cost almost 806.6 million kr. For the first 15 years of its use (until 2027), there is a toll for using the tunnel: 100 kr for small vehicles and 200 kr for large vehicles.
