Panoramic view of the Aurlandsfjord

Stegastein is one of the must-visit locations near Flåm. From the lookout platform, you have a panoramic fjord view – unparallelled any other place in Norway. The only other way to get views like this is to put on your hiking shoes and walk uphill.

You also have an eagle’s eye view of Aurland town centre, the impressive mountain range across the fjord and towards Flåm.

Booking this tour from Flåm or Aurland gives you approx. 30 minutes at the viewpoint. The perfect amount of time to look around and get your photographs without getting bored.


Why book a sightseeing tour to Stegastein?

With several daily departures year-round, this tour is the most carefree way to get to Stegastein. In the summer, traffic jams can be an issue on the narrow road that winds its way up the mountainside from Aurland. In winter, the steep road may get slippery with ice and snow. Booking a tour lets you enjoy the scenery rather than worrying about driving.

Compared with booking a taxi, the tour is also a budget-friendly alternative.

We also offer an audio guide free of charge for the drive, giving good insights into Aurland and the places you see along the way.

The architecture of Stegastein Viewpoint

Stegastein Viewpoint juts 30 metres from the mountainside, 650 metres above the fjord. It’s a striking example of how modern architectural design can be integrated with natural beauty of the landscape.

It was designed by Todd Saunders and Tommie Wilhelmsen and was completed in 2006, as part of a project with Norwegian Scenic Routes.

The Norwegian Scenic Routes are a selection of 18 roads that offer unique views of Norway's landscapes. One of which goes past Stegastein across Mt. Aurlandsfjellet, between Lærdal and Aurland. The Scenic Routes are enhanced with innovative architecture and art installations, such as viewpoints and rest areas that blend with the natural environment.
