About Vesteråsfjellet

The short walk to the Vesteråsfjellet viewpoint is a pleasant stroll before or after a meal at the Westerås Farm. It’s about 20 minutes each way between the farm and the viewpoint.

Vesteråsfjellet is an easier alternative to Løsta, which continues to a higher viewpoint.

Getting there

Westerås Farm is a short drive from Geiranger. Look for the turn-off about 3.5 kilometers south of Geiranger on road 63, between Flydalsjuvet and Geiranger.

Follow the road to the end where there is a parking lot.

Trail description

The trail has a gradual ascent followed by a short descent to the viewpoint.

Starting at Westerås Farm, walk along the dirt road through the paddocks where sheep, goats, and llamas graze. Once you reach the fork in the trail, continue to the left and wind down to the viewpoint.

Return along the same trail.
