Stegastein Viewpoint - Review
Flam is a naturally beautiful part of Norway and is incomplete without its view points. The Stegastein viewpoint was built to give its tourists the best glimpse of the beautiful village through a panoramic view. The remarkable architecture of this sightseeing strip is an attraction on its own with a 4 meter wide and 30 meter long elevated path.Stegastein stands out as a mountain branch about 650 meters above the Aurland fjord. The Stegastein tour is bound to leave you with cherishing memories for life and is a must do in the village of Flam.

Stegastein Viewpoint, Flam Reviews
To get here if you drive, it is a narrow paved road with a few switchbacks all worth the effort, a small parking lot with public WC as well. If you have the time, keep driving up until you reach the summit. Above the timberline the landscape turns "moon-like" with barren rock strewn grasses and wildflowers. We visited in late August and a wool sweater or a fleece jacket are recommended. As is a camera!
This dramatic Stegastein viewing platform juts out high above the Aurlandsfjord. It is absolutely stunning and the view is just magnificent! A must visit!! You will go through some narrow hair pin turns on the drive up from Flåm. There's a small parking for about 5-6 cars, so better start your journey early. We were started early this manage to escape the road closure when we were there.
Amazing place with a breathtaking views. Road up there is quite narrow and dangerous. It was quite scary to drive. Local taxi drivers were very dangerous. Better not to drive up on your car and use the bus. You will enjoy the views much much more then.
Breath taking view from over the wooden bridge. A must visit tourist attraction point. From up there you can see all around “Aurland”, and it’s beautiful mountains and lake. Be careful while driving, as the roads are very narrow and sometimes without fences.
Too bad it was snowing. Our views were somewhat hampered by the snow, rain and fog. However, we were treated to a few amazing views when the clouds parted.
