Stegastein Viewpoint, Flam Reviews
Breathtaking views. It's a crazy curvy, hairpin road up. Go early and avoid the buses coming at you, or, just look up and ahead. Visitor center is a great example of imaginative Nordic architecture. I hope you have a beautiful day. Take a raincoat/windbreaker. The walk at the top is wonderful . Going down the backside is easier driving. And very beautiful in its own right.
What a view! The road itself gives views but the viewing platform is the majestic star of the show. Worth a stop and look. Many many people there during the day. We didn't have too much time but wow, it was fantastic. I found it is open all year, so even in winter, it can be accessed.
Absolutely gorgeous view point! A must visit if you are in Flam! The entire journey is so scenic with winding hair pin bend narrow roads! I took a ton of photos. On the way back, the bus driver stopped at a lower point where you could capture some more beautiful pictures! I took the tourist bus from Flam Info center. The drive is about 30 mins to the view point from Flam. Make sure you go really early to avoid a crowd! Carry food/snacks if you want to eat up there and carry a water bottle too as there is no drinking water available at the top. There is a decent restroom.
Stunning view from 650m above the sea level which is amazing ! Along the bus route to the viewpoint the organized tour gives you audio guide about Norwegian culture and background even stories, which is educational and enjoyable !
I just gotta brag before I give my review: I cycled uphill from Flåm. Do not be like me. You'll likely want to throw the bicycle over the cliff midway. The viewpoint is just amazing. See "tiny" Aurland from up there 680m above the fjords. It's quite touristy so you can expect crowds to come in by bus loads. Some parking available and a decent toilet with a view. Only thing missing is drinking water. No potable water available not even a vending machine. So bring enough drinking water!
