Steep hike but the viewpoint is worth the effort. Glad we did it but would not do it again. If likely takes a bit longer that you might think if with a group. The views are worth the hike.

This is an incredibly steep hike up the side of Geirangerfjord to the Skagefla farm and beyond. The views on the way up and at the top are absolutely breathtaking - you can see the whole fjord, the Seven Sisters and a host of other...More

Very steep hike, pretty well secured trail, don't think about the dropoff behind you.... We are in our 70s but did OK. The hike back to Geiranger was also demanding, more exposed, but gorgeous.

This is another example of the official hiking time being very conservative, to account for the variety of people who might consider hiking this trail. We were dropped off from the ferry around 4 PM on a hot sunny Wednesday in early July. The teenagers...More

My twelve-year-old daughter and I took the sightseeing boat and got off to hike up to Skagefla (and then continued along the trail back down to Geiranger). We were the only ones to get off the boat - everyone else looked pretty confused about what...More

We got off the sightseeing boat here and climbed up to the farm. The views of Seven Sisters and the fjord are amazing. We then kept climbing and hiked back to Geiranger. Just an amazing hike.

So, you book the first boat tour in the morning, attend the sightseeing tour and leave the boat at Skageflå. I took the one at 08:45 and it was so perfect, only ten people onboard. After you left the boat you hike up to Skageflå,...More

Great hike (pretty steep hike up) but well worth the trip - pack a picnic and walk back through town.

It is a rather long walk from Homlong in Geiranger, but well worth the effort. During summer you may also take the boat from Gerianger to this abandoned farm. One of Norways absolutely most iconic views can be experienced from this point. If you are...More

Our fjord cruise boat dropped us off here where we could then hike up to this mountain farm. Well worth the visit to see how people made a living in this wilderness area.
