About Flydalsjuvet

The Flydalsjuvet lookout point offers beautiful views over the Geirangerfjord. If you have ever seen a photo from Norway, chances are it has been taken here. There is also an elusive rock, known as the Flydalsjuvet Rock, which overhangs a cliff, offering impressive views.

Getting there

By car

From Geiranger, follow road 63 south uphill for about 4 km. The viewpoint is signposted and impossible to miss.

Trail description

The viewpoint is divided into two areas, one upper and one lower plateau, with a gangway running in between. The viewpoint offers a great view of the fjord and the green river valley, but doesn't provide the postcard view down to the last detail. For that, there is a hanging rock which is a bit difficult to find and dangerous as well, since there is a 307 meter drop below the place where most people stand for a photo. Be very careful when venturing down to the rock.

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.
