the fjord from the water is wonderful but to see it from above is beyond description; and the road to go to Stagastein is unbelievable

“Excellent fjord views”
Reviewed July 13, 2012

The Stegastein viewpoint, located up the mountain between Flam and Aurland, gives you a spectacular view of the fjords and is well worth the one hour outting. If you don't have a car- and you really don't need one in the fjord region- you can easily book an outting to the Stegastein viewpoint through the tour office in Flam. The office is located in the same building as the Flam railway ticket office. You'll ride in a 10-12 person van up to the viewpoint, stay as long as you like, then ride back down. The road is narrow and windy...but you won't be the one driving on it! We came to Flam on the last Flamsbana of the day (leaving Oslo at 4:09pm), stayed overnight, and then on the next day the tour office booked us on the ferry from Flam to Gudvangen with a bus return to Flam followed by the van ride up to Stegastein viewpoint. Leaving Flam on the 11am ferry to Gudvangen, we were able to do all that before catching the afternoon express ferry to Balestrand at 3:30pm.
