Overview

Kjeåsen mountain farm is described as the world's most isolated settlement, it is like an eagle's nest 530m above the Simadalsfjord. The road to the farm starts in Simadal, about 10 km from Eidfjord/Rv7. Due to narrow road, hourly driving has been introduced. Traffic up to Kjeåsen every full hour, traffic down from Kjeåsen on the half hour. One can drive up just to enjoy the view, or you can do the amazing hike from the fjord to the top. The hike starts in Simadal by Statkraft (parking by Sima Power Plant). From this point take a left towards the fjord to Kjeaneset. The trail forks off to the right and winds steeply up the mountainside. Ropes, logs and ladders are necessary aids along the way. Stunning views in several places along the trail. Approx 1,5 - 2 hrs hard uphill hiking each way.

This is a must! Amazing place, and the history. Think about the people who lived here, High up in the mountain, without the road

Beautiful experience. We went by car, and it was worth it. Check the time when you go up. The tunnel up is open at the hour and down at the half.

This is one of the farms that you can drive upto. The road is narrow and needs careful driving. You won't regret the detour and if you are not planning any major hikes around Geiranger farms - this is your best bet. The views are...More

It was interesting experience to drive up to Kjeasen trough long and dark tunnel. It was a little bit scary but worth the time to drive up and see lovely landscape. If you going to Eidfjord don't miss this spot also on a rainy day!...More

Went by car through the tunnel which is one-direction (direction changes every half hour), but some people have trouble reading the clock, making the drive through an experience on its own. At the end of the tunnel, it is rewarded with very nice views on...More

Worth the drive to enjoy a nice view over the fjords. Perfect place to take some stunning pictures. Take the time to think about the life people had at this place before the road was built. Nice to still see some animals around the farms....More

I'm sure I'm a bit late to respond, but it might be of help to others. In order to get to the farm if you don't have your own vehicle, I'd suggest hitchhiking with other tourists. You can either get a ride all the way up, or... More

The farm is open for visitors 24/7 unless the road is for some reason closed. Souvenir/waffle sales have irregular schedules, but are often open most days during late June till August.
