About Flydalsjuvet Rock

The Flydalsjuvet Lookout Point offers beautiful views over the Geirangerfjord. There is also an elusive rock, known as the Flydalsjuvet Rock, which overhangs a cliff, offering impressive views. 

Trail description

This hanging rock 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. So you need to be really careful when going down to the spot.


  • This viewpoint is not recommended for children. 

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 Airbnb's available.
