Create an itinerary including Stegastein Lookout
At Stegastein Lookout, absorb expansive views of Aurlandsfjord. At 650 m (2,132 ft) above sea level, the lookout point stands perched above the one of the world's longest and deepest fjords. To get a true feeling of the height, stand on the glass-ended platform for the sensation of floating above the fjord. You'll be able to see into the clear blue water below, across to the entrance of Naerofjord, and out toward the mountains and villages along the fjord. You can rent a car to reach the top, or take a bus leaving from Flam or Aurland. Keep in mind that the road up is narrow and quite curvy. Note that it can get quite crowded during the day.

  • You could walk, but its challenging! Our tour included a coach ride up to the lookout which is architecturally a credit to the area. There are toilets at the site, but nothing more so lingering is...

  • A beautiful viewpoint near Flåm. The road up is very narrow and traffic can get congested. Worth the short drive to get a unique view near the top of Aurlandsfjellet. Optional to drive down the same road or take another less-travelled route back through the beautiful Norwegian countryside.
  • Spectacular views and lovely hike to Mt Prest. If you want to enjoy a peaceful drive, you need to go there early morning or late evening. We went around 8-9am and it was very quiet however after the hike on our way back down around 1pm it was crazy packed and it took us more than 1,5hours to make it back down. Buses should not be allowed on this road.
