Essential info

About Vegaskjelet

At the turnoff to Leirvassbu in the Sognefjellet mountains, you will find the Vegaskjelet viewpoint. The unique viewpoint juts out from the road and rises above the trees and the undergrowth to give you a nice view of multiple 2,000-meter peaks, like Skarsnebb and Steinetind.

Getting there

The Vegaskjelet viewpoint is located where Sognefjellsvegen meets the road heading towards Leirvassbu Lodge. It is located on the east side of the road next to the parking lot.
