Join us for a hike above the fjords!

Our excursion starts with a drive from Flåm to Stegastein Viewpoint in our comfortable minivan. Enjoy beautiful views from the famous viewpoint before we continue the drive further up the road to the car park. From here, a well trodden path leads up the north edge of the mountain towards Mt. Prest. The hike is steep uphill, with considerably steep drops on the fjord (west) side of the track. At around 1000m height, there is a steeper section where the track narrows to a path with loose stones. After passing this, you begin to be rewarded with even better views of the fjord. Also, the cairn at 1363mas. comes into view above you. The path is wider and easier on the final stretch to the cairn. This part of the mountain is called Røyrgrind and this is where many choose to complete the hike. The cairn is an impressive size, and there is a little box with a notebook where you can leave a record of your visit. Breathe in the fresh mountain air, enjoy a Norwegian hiking treat and oppurtunity for a fjord view selfie before we make our way back the same way towards Flåm.
