This excursion brings you through the favourite hiking terrain among the locals, 1000 meters above the famous Sognefjorden. The path twists along the edge of the mountain in an altitude there are no trees growing, which means that you are able to watch miles of spectacular scenery around you during most of the trip. We walk up the mountainside as far as you are comfortable with, before returning down through a short distance of coniferous forest. The hiking trip ends by the viewpoint at Stegastein. Tickets may be purchased in combination with a sightseeing bus ride, or seperately if you have your own transport. « less

Rallarvegen Haugastol - Flam In addition to the Haugastol -Flam stretch, there is a 43 km road further on the west of the Gravahals tunnel, from Upsete to Voss. Because of the altitude difference from Haugastol, (988 m), round Taugevatn (1301m) to Flam (2m), the majority of cyclists travel westwards. From St. Hans (Midsummer 23/24 June - Mid September), the Norwegian State Railways (NSB) adds a special cycle-train to/from Oslo-Voss. Rallarvegen the Navvies'Road) is designated as a cultural monument and important part of Norwegian National Heritage. The road runs parallel with the Bergen railway, which opened in 1909, and passes by NSB-owned buildings, many of them old guard's houses. There are now listed buildings and all carry plaques showing the year in which they were built. Early in the season there is still a fair amount of snow on the ground, so during this period we advise you to take the cycle on the train from Finse to Hallingskeid. The route is closed for vehicles approximately 15 km west of Haugastol at Storurdivatnet (1140m), and it continues purely as a trail/cycle-track the rest of the way. The Storurdi guard's house offers refreshments and simple accommodation. At 1222 metres above sea level, Finse is Norway's highest railway station. Located in Finse are the Norwegian Mountain Touring Association (DNT) Finsehytta, Finse 1222 (hotel) and the Rallar (Navvies') Museum. Further west, the road is somewhat rutted. The Rallar Museum uses the Fagernut guard's house (20 km west of Finse) as a refreshment shop (no accommodation). Hallingskeid Station at 1110 m.a.s.l. is located 21 km from Finse and 15 km from the Myrdal road crossing. There is a DNT-self-service lodge at Hallingskeid. From here, the road gradually descends through fantatic West Norwegian countryside with many waterfalls. Be careful at Klevagjeldet- the track follow a narrow mountains ledge with nothing to stop you plunging down into the river below! Meals & accommodation: Vatnahalsen Hotell (812m.a.s.l.) 2 km from Myrdal station. Cafe Rallaren at Myrdal station. The final 20 km goes through Flamsdalen, a valley famous for its beauty and Norhtern Europe's most exciting railway journey. The line falls 865 m over the course of the valley. The upper section has 21 sharp curves, and at this part it is wise to get off your cycle and walk! At Flam there is a wide choose of accommodation ranging from hotel, B & B, pension, hostel, cabins and camping.
