4.8/5 based on 320+ reviews on the web
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.

  • An interesting solution: put over the forest, saving all trees and plants. Transparent plastic creates the illusion that you're floating above the Gorge. And next you can collect mushrooms and berries.

  • At the end of "Snow" Aurlandsfjellet-national tourist route, 6 km before reaching the Aurland, is the third observation deck. It has the form of a console at a height of 650 m long and 30 m from the platform overlooking the Sognefjord. Great place, but too busy. Magnificent views!

  • Norway was the place I visited in the early schedule time time. Mini bus ride up the length is pretty wonderful thrill. Gazebo arrives, the elasticity. That's really cool. However, there is no anything in the vicinity of the Observatory itself is having enough feeling to see in the picture. Pearl pit rock climbing if you are planning to visit and so forth need to be unlikely. At the end of September I took no pictures as visitors are almost gone. I feel a little inferior to a sex ratio. Above, overlooking the fjord.

  • Fantastisk utsikt. Smal vei opp til utsiktspunkt
  • Went there in winter time. Such an amazing view, a bit risky to drive up on the small road because no bus going there in winter, but really worth to visit!
  • Breathtaking view from the Wooden deck for viewing. Must visit if you are near Flam region, since its not far from Flam. Can hire a cab or take your own car up.
  • One of the most beautiful places in Norway
  • Breath taking views from this wooden deck view point. You can get here by a minibus from Flam, it's a 30 minute ride to each direction. Definitely don't miss. Tickets canbe purchased online or at the Flam visitors center.
