Losta

Losta, Geiranger: Address, Losta Reviews: 4.5/5

About
Start from Vesterås. Follow the relatively flat farm track from the buildings for approx. 10 mins. Then head up to the right - there is a path that climbs steadily until it reaches Løsta at approx. 500 m above sea level. There is a fine view of the fjord, Grande and Møllsbygda (Ørnevegen).

Though it was drizzling when we started our walk it did not put us off. We walked for 3/4 hour up to the viewing area.
I would say you need good walking shoes and to have reasonable fitness to enjoy this walk. Initially, we passed lama and many goats with their kids- cute!
It was misty when we reached the viewing area and needed to wait around for 10 mins, no problem, gave us a break. Stunning views and the colours!!
If you are reasonably fit, ...just do it.

I had read about this place on the Internet, and I had high expectations. I was not disappointed. The road itself to get to the place was breathtaking, and once we got there we had an even more amazing view over the valley far below. The food was excellent, we had salmon and wafels. Everything delicious, and served with a smile. As an extra bonus, two aeroplanes came right above us and continued down towards the fyord. And don't forget to see the lamas! Wonderful place, we would like to come back some day.

Along the way the trail gets very rocky but why go on a hike of your not up for a challenge! We loved finding our way and passing some Lama's.
But all the hard work is worth it! Amazing views at the end of the trail.

This hike up to Losta point is serious and the trail had exposed tree roots and water flow over stone in parts. Its about 2.5km in length and the elevation is 500m over sealevel. From the trailhead it may only be a 400m vertical. It took about 1.5hrs to climb.
From the waterfront hike up the road past the falls with the viewing platforms to find the Norwegian Fjord Center on the right. Here you will find posters showing the trail. (In the image of the poster the Geiranger Fjordsenter in near the lower right and Losta is near the upper-left. You can see the the path up A past B to C.) The trailhead is across the road from the Fjord Center and begins with gate on a wire and wooden fence. There are simple signs along the way. After the meadow with the sheep the trail splits. Go left to decend to one viewing point, B, but go right to continue onto Losta. It progresses up through the trees and along the mountain shoulder to Losta where the views are superb. Cruise ships anchor below and the photo ops are great. I don't have to tell you to be careful but if you have hiking poles they are a plus.

The view of Geirangerfjord is beautiful at the end, but there are so many other places one can view it. The path itself wound through a sheep field and was deeply rutted and muddy even though it hadn't rained much. My kids liked petting the sheep, but there was loads of manure on the path. Do yourself a favor and hike to Storsetterfossen instead.

Great viewpoint at the end. Fairly easy 45-minute hike to the viewpoint. A bonus is that the hiking occurs partly through a goat farm so there's a possibility of seeing some farm animals. Afterwards we enjoyed a snack at the Vesterås cafe on their terrace. Beautiful!

The viewpoint has some beautiful views over the Fjord but be aware that the climb up to it involves walking through a farm, with the appropriate quantities of animal manure and also some clambering over trees and rocks so good footwear is essential. It's worth it though when you get up there!

We visited Geiranger as part of our cruise trip, so we had limited hours before getting on the ship again to leave. So after we walked around, we decided to take the hike which promised to have some cool views. The hike itself wasn't really intense, it takes around 2 hours to reach the top, so a total of around 4 hours with the stops (we stopped at both viewpoints). At the time we made the hike the trail was really muddy as it had been raining for the past week, so having boots would be really handy.

The view up there is really worth the walk, just dont forget to pack a water bottle for the way and a snack.

We did both trails. The first could have been enough, the extra km doesn't add much to the view.
Over all the view was amazing.
One thing that was different from other locations in Norway was that the view point had a fence.
The trail had goats and lamas(?) roaming about which was amusing
