About Løsta

Looking for a hike off the beaten track and away from all the tourists in Geiranger? The trek to Løsta is a short hike with a good climb of a few hundred meters.

Getting there

Take the main road 63 towards Flydalsjuvet for about 3 km. Turn left when you see the sign to Westerås. Follow the road to Westerås Farm and park there.

It’s also possible to hike up from Geiranger.

Trail description

Starting at Westerås Farm, walk through the goat and llama paddocks before entering the woods and starting to climb to a great view over Geiranger fjord and Ørnesvingen.

Take a drink in the sun on the patio at Westerås once you’ve finished the hike and enjoy the views.
