Must-do when in/around Flam! This was the highlight of our trip. The views of the Fjords from above them are unbeatable. Well worth a trip up there. We almost skipped it and so glad we didn't! You don't have to spend ages up there but seeing the Fjords from above is def a must-do when in Norway! Be aware of... More

Stegastein is a wooden construction protruding straight out in the air. From the glass wall at the end of the walk, you can see Aurland 670 meters below, and the view of the Aurland fjord is stunning. Parking lot, you cannot miss it.

This lookout is really incredible, both architecturally and also from the view it provides. Stegastein is part of a tourist route called Aurlandsfjellet. I advise to make the whole route, because the landscapes are magnificent. One of the most beautiful routes I've gone through. The tour can be done in about an hour and a half

This is something you MUST do if in the area. The view is incredible, the architecture is so lovely, modern and yet non-intrusive in this incredible area. Driving up the hair-pin turns is a challenge, but well worth it. Ample parking right next to the Stegastein. No admission - free for all!

I believe this sightseeing tour will provide some of your favorite memories of your trip to Norway. If you have your... More

Most blogs state that the Atlantic Road and Trollstigen are the most dangerous roads in Norway. I have driven on all 3 in a single trip and found the road leading to Stegastein as the most challenging and risky. You get a view of the narrow Nærøyfjord which is a branch of the larger Sognefjord. The viewpoint has been uniquely... More

We drove up the road to the lookout from Aurland. We liked the view from Stegastein, but I liked other informal pullouts along the road even better for photos.

Amazing view of the fjord. The road to the outlook is narrow but worth the fantastic experience ( if you survive it...)

Amazing views. Worth the drive. If the road is open (closed over the peak during winter) follow right over the mountains !

The view from the Lookout is an absolute 5 star attraction. Don't go to Flam without going up there. We were in Flam after having arrived on the train. We wanted to see the viewpoint and another area attraction, the Borgund Stave Church and only have a half day. We hired a guide and taxi from Gudvangen Taxi and our... More
