About
Kjeåsen mountain farm is described as the world's most isolated settlement, it is like an eagle's nest 530m above the Simadalsfjord. The road to the farm starts in Simadal, about 10 km from Eidfjord/Rv7. Due to narrow road, hourly driving has been introduced. Traffic up to Kjeåsen every full hour, traffic down from Kjeåsen on the half hour. One can drive up just to enjoy the view, or you can do the amazing hike from the fjord to the top. The hike starts in Simadal by Statkraft (parking by Sima Power Plant). From this point take a left towards the fjord to Kjeaneset. The trail forks off to the right and winds steeply up the mountainside. Ropes, logs and ladders are necessary aids along the way. Stunning views in several places along the trail. Approx 1,5 - 2 hrs hard uphill hiking each way.
Duration: 1-2 hours

We have done it both ways: hiked the way up, hitchhiked the way down. We are 2 adults in our midforties in what you would call normal shape (think corporate employees, 1-2 times per week in gym and not too sedentary) and of no particular hiking skills. It took us something like 80 mins to do the hike. It is not an easy one, but it is interesting and definitely doable. Advice: take good hiking boots, it is slippery and the rocks occasionally require good grip. You would not fall to your death, but you can certainly break few bones. If it rains (or just rained), don’t go, you will survive it, but definitely hate it. Also, do look for the T sign - in some parts the path is not obvious.
The drive: it is short and nothing extraordinary. You don’t need any special driving skills, there are few turns, but if you reached this point in Norway, you have definitely seen worse. It is also very short drive - 10 mins or so. View is great. Definitely worth the drive - if you are not fan of hiking probably not worth the hike.

We drove up to Kjeåsen Mountain Farm mostly for the experience and the view. And what a view it is.

First, you drive up this incredible winding mountain road that eventually leads to a 1.5 mile tunnel. You definitely feel like you are well away from civilization. It's amazing to think what this place would have been like hundreds of years ago.

There was absolutely nothing to see or do at the farm. It's just a nice view. But it's a great view. You can see down the fjord to Eidfjord.

Note that the street is one way. You can only drive up on the bottom half of the hour and down on the top half of the hour. Be sure to plan your timing around this. Alternately you can hike, but it's a good trek up steep hills. Driving is much easier.

Kjeåsen Mountain Farm isn't a must-see, but if you have time and are in the area, it's worth checking out for the cool view.

Drove by car on a rainy day
Agree with others that not much to do there other than enjoy a breathtaking panorama and lush green fields on the mountain slope.
Glad we did it but the view is not exceptional and you will experience similar views in other parts of the fjord country.
If you time it well you can arrive, park, see the spot and leave within half hour window so that you don’t have to wait another half hour to go back.

We rented two electric Renault Twizys in the village and made our way up to the farm.

The drive is fun, lots of cool views and a narrow and dark tunnel.

Up there the view is cool, unfortunately only a “so so” waffle was sold. If there was a little cafe which really served some local food this location could be super cool. The souvenir shop is disappointing as well.

We hiked the old path to the farm from the fjord a 530 meter ascent. It is steep and probably not for the faint hearted, but a very uniqie experience. We used 4,5 hours round trip with lots of photo stops and lunch by the farm. The farm itself is private property, but the view from outside the fences is breathtaking. Remember food and water

Very close to Eidfjord town if you have a car. Have to go up the hill on a narrow road and pass through a one way tunnel. Once you reach up , there are 2 small farm houses , we were not very impressed by them and there was not much to see up there. The view is good from there. Personally did not feel that it was worth the drive.

This is a must! Amazing place, and the history. Think about the people who lived here, High up in the mountain, without the road

Beautiful experience. We went by car, and it was worth it. Check the time when you go up. The tunnel up is open at the hour and down at the half.

This is one of the farms that you can drive upto. The road is narrow and needs careful driving. You won't regret the detour and if you are not planning any major hikes around Geiranger farms - this is your best bet. The views are great and the place is very pleasant.
