Flåm and Stegastein Viewpoint

The charming village of Flåm is one of Norway’s most idyllic and scenic areas, with an abundance of unspoiled natural scenery. Located 650 meters above the Aurlandsfjord, Stegastein Viewpoint is a must for any visitor to Flåm. At Stegastein, you’ll find a viewing platform offering panoramic views of the fjord below and the beautiful mountain range.

Stegastein lookout is a truly spectacular spot, and it’s no wonder it’s one of Norway’s most photographed viewpoints. Jutting out 30 metres from the side of the mountain, Stegastein provides an unparalleled view of the stunning landscape surrounding it – so be sure to pack your camera along for this trip!

It’s easy to get to Stegastein viewpoint. We highly recommend taking our electric minibus from Flåm, which is an experience in itself! The Stegastein Viewpoint is part of the beautiful National Tourist Road that runs from Aurland to Lærdal, so it’s quite a scenic drive. During the winter season, you can get to the Stegastein viewpoint in a fun and exciting way - on snowshoes
