About Løsta

This is the perfect hike for those 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

By car

From Geiranger, follow road 63 south through Geiranger centre towards Hole for about 4 km. Make a left at the sign towards Vesterås. Pass the cabins on your left and head right onto a gravel road that takes you to the parking at Vesterås.

Trail description

Starting at Vesterås Farm, walk through the goat and llama paddocks before heading up to the right - there is a path that climbs steadily until it reaches Løsta at approx. 500 m above sea level. You are starting off in the woods before climbing to a great view over Geiranger fjord and Ørnesvingen. Take a drink in the sun on the patio at Vesterås once you’ve finished the hike and enjoy the views. 

Where to stay

Geiranger offers multiple options for an overnight stay. Choose between hotels like Hotel Geiranger and Hotel Utsikten, or go for cheaper options like Geiranger Camping or Vinje Camping. There are also a very small selection of Airbnbs available.
