Beautiful drive up to look out point. Rewarded with amazing views. I imagine it can get busy but we were there early morning and had the place to ourselves. Only 20min and so worth It!

It's a nice platform looking out at the fjords. The drive up there is quite a climb and challenging because of single lane road and heavy two way traffic. You also should wait for the wave of tourist bus to be gone before enjoying the...More

We drove to the lookout ourselves. The road is mostly one lane with many less than safe pullouts to use for oncoming traffic. May seem normal for the locals but nothing like roads back home. Heard busses make this trip...cannot imagine meeting one on this...More

This is the first fjord I've seen and I loved it. You can hitchhike and I hope someone will drive you up

It's a must site when you are in flåm area. Don't miss it. If you are with your car take the road up to the mountain a lot of snow!!

The road is scary yes, I would not recommend driving it with a stick shift unless you a very good at using the break going into first gear. If you rent an auto transmission you can manage it, going slowly. They have little pull offs...More
