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 in good shape I recommend to walk from Geiranger. You will spend 4-5 hours to... 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.

Great view with great waterfall. You can not miss it since it is big and noisy. Take pictures for memories of nature in its best.

I finished this hike and wanted to give my insight to the experience. i didn't have time to do a full hike to this farm or back so I opted for the ferry drop off instead. I managed to do the whole hike in 2.5 hours. here is how: I took the G/S Geiranger ferry from the town of Geiranger... More

Just did this hike some days ago and believe this hike will give you unforgettable views and experiences of both Geiranger fjord views, culture and history of our Norwegian heritage. It is most likely best to take the shuttle boat to Skagehola, "climb" up to Skageflå fjord farm, then continue up to Homlongsætra farm and descend on the nice trail... More

We decided to do the hike to the farm and then hike back to geiranger based on reading trip advisor reviews. Lessons learnt: wear hiking boots( not sketchers) Carry snacks/ water as it will take you 4-5 hours with children. Great way of finding out how much patience, tolerance and stamina you have, with some amazing views and unforgettable memories... More

If you have the time (approximately 4 hours) this hike is a must do. You can have the sightseeing boat drop you off at a small inlet (you must mention you want them to do this when buying your tickets) and start the hike from there. The start of the hike is quite challenging and ascends quickly but becomes easier... More

Beautiful hike up the side of the fjord and back down! We decide not to take the boat and started the hike after lunch time expecting a few hours round trip, but ended up with more than we bargained for. Took us about two hours to climb all the way up and then back down to the farm, and it... More

We took a boat taxi with Active Geiranger which dropped us off at the base of the cliff on which the Skagefla farm is on. From there, it is a 30-45 mins very steep, pretty strenuous hike up the cliff. For all that demanding activity, the views at the top were worth it. Glorious views of the surrounding fjord and...

The Skageflå hill farm is one of the more accessable hill farms with restored houses. When I write accessable, it is in the true sense that all of us with two good legs and reasonable balance will easily make this walk from the Homlong farm. HOMLONG lies on the western shoreline in the Geiranger fjord bay, roughly one kilometer from... More
