“Looking out over paradise”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

When deciding what to do on our trip I discovered the Stegastein Lookout. The photos online do not do the place justice because it is more beautiful than a picture can show.

“Nice views towards Aurlandsfjord”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

It is worth going up to this lookout, and in my opinion the entire tourist route is very nice (better than the tunnel, if you are not in a hurry).

“Stegastein Lookout point - Aurland, Western Norway”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

Most of you will visit Flam and take the cruise and/or the fantastic Flamsbana rail trip from/to Flam - Myrdal. There is another gorgeous view point called the Stegastein Lookout point in Aurland just about 10mins from Flam in the city of Aurland. (http://designalmic.com/aurland-lookout-stegastein-viewpoint-saunders-architecture-wilhelmsen-arkitektur/)
We were driving and had a car so we drove from Flam back towards Oslo and just before the long 25Km Lærdal Tunnel, is the city of Aurland. Make a left at the gas station before the tunnel and follow signs (or your GPS) to Aurland Sentrum. You will see the white church and make a right - behind the church. On your left are couple of stores but go past them and take the road straight and you will come to a fork in the road with residential houses on both sides. That the road to your LEFT and you will start to climb up. Its a narrow road but quite safe. We went late in the evening (8pm) end of july 2014 and there was no traffic at all. the climb is slow but soon you will reach the top and get to see this wonderful piece of architecture. The lookout point extends into the valley and you can see the entire Aurland Fjord under you. Must see - more so because its so close to the Flam attraction. There are bus tours too (i read those at the Flam visitor center) but if you are driving - give this one a peek.

“Must see! Spectacular panoramic views of the region”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

Must see! Spectacular panoramic views of the region. A bit difficult to get to without a car, but there should be periodic public transport from Aurland during normal season.

“Must-see!”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

Bus to the Stegastein viewpoint is a bit expensive, the walk there takes about two hours and offers amazing views.
