This is a relatively short hike up from Flåm that rewards you with a relaxing waterfall and fantastic views.

Great views from the top over lake Skredvatn and the Telemark. At sunny days you can spot Gaustatoppen.

We did the hike from Osterbo (where we stayed overnight) to Vassbygli in July with my husband and two teenage girls. The weather was dry so we chose a bit more difficult route via Bjornstigen. The views from there were impressive - I highly recommend - but the descent is steep assisted by metal wires so it would be challenging if the rocks were wet and slippery. The river and the waterfalls are very beautiful. We returned to Osterbo by local bus. There were many hikers so we did not fit to the first bus but had to waite for almost an hour for an extra bus. We made the hike via Bjornstigen in 5 hours but had to waite for bus for two hours. Luckily there is a kiosk at the bus stop in Vassbygli where you can buy drinks and snacks and even have a shower.

Amazing view. Busy trail in late July. 10-13 minute wait for the most highly coveted picture spot.

Views are incredible. Water in the valley, gorgeous. Mostly very well marked. Rocky trails, rocks of every size on nearly every section of trail. lots of hiking down that you give back going up again. I am 57 year old female with some knee issues so down can be harder for me. The hike was very challenging but worth it. Total time 7 hours to cover 19 km. Not 8.5 miles by the way.

Amazing views!! Pretty tough uphill portions but overall not too bad.

amazing views!

We started at 3:00 am to avoid crowds and we had a beautiful hike that included sunrise.

Amazing views. Very windy at the top. went out of season so it was very quiet. wonderful hike

One of the best views I’ve had at the end of a hike. Got to eat lunch dangling 1800 feet above the water.

This hike takes you back to the late 19th century and early 20th century when agriculture was still highly active in this strenuous mountainous terrain. Many of the Norwegian families that operated these farms fled to North America for an easier life. However, the Sinjarheim farm is still in operation by a local university. This hike allows you to experience this history along with breathtaking views. You will see waterfalls, cliffs, caves, and more.

Fantastic hike. It is challenging and you need to be in decent shape. The view from the top is absolutely amazing. We took a Fjord cruise followed by the hike. It was cool to see the Fjord from the bottom and then the top. Make sure to actually wear shoes appropriate for hiking. There were a few tourists trying to do this hike in high heels. It was a sprained ankle waiting to happen.

Was overcast when I did this walk, so the views were not as good as I hoped. Was still a very enjoyable hike, and views would have stunning on a clear day.

Simply amazing! Can be busy but still excellent.

Nice hike, great view. One of the more busy/toeristic hikes in Norway.

Amazing view ! Be careful a lot of wind at the top.

If this hike were just about anywhere else, I would give it 5-stars. This one is great, but it just doesn't compare to Trolltunga or Kjerag. If you do this one, make sure you hike up above Pulpit Rock and do the loop trail. There are far fewer people and the views are much better than on the rock itself.

This hike is not for the faint of heart. It is worth attempting. Not necessarily difficult, just continuous effort. We've been twice with our 6 and 8 yr olds. Certainly, the summit is breathtaking, but there is much to see on the way up and back. Our first climb was on a sunny 21 degree day in June. Our second climb, was maybe 18 degrees and rainy (not a sprinkle, heavy rain) in late July. I'd do it again!

Absolutely awesome trail for the avid hiker and outdoor enthusiast. Short distance wise but you get a respectable 2000ft elevation gain. If you ever find yourself in the beautiful country of Norway, you simply have to partake in this fjord-set adventure. In the upper parts of the trail you'll come across a series of little lakes and rain basins dotted with colorful heather and various conifers. Once you summit the Pulpit Rock you'll be able to indulge in a beautiful vista that is the Lysefjord gleaming in vibrant turquoise color. You'll experience varied terrain ranging from compacted earth, man-made wooden bridges spanning across swamps to boulder fields and near vertical talus slopes. Some scrambling is required.

Nice view, too crowded in summer
