Fantastic view

After a Geirangerfjord cruise you can drive south to reach Flydalajuvet. It has a tiny parking lot, so please be quick when you have taken some nice photos, so others also can park their car and enjoy the view as well.

Flydalsjuvet wasn’t far from Geiranger. You can also walk to Flydalsjuvet from the Geiranger center and through the waterfall trail.

Superb views

On a Norwegian Cruise and had booked a full day around Olden. You get some superb views from high up. This was the best part of the tour.

Iconic Norwegian fjord view
Jun 2020
This is the classic Norwegian fjord view. Spectaular to say the least. Well worth a stop. We went here twice in two days and the traffic was severe in the evening. In the morning we were almost alone. Something to consider if you have the time to choose.

Impressive views!
Jul 2019
Beautiful drive with scenic overlooks that offer different vantage points for picture-perfect photo ops of Geiranger, Geirangerfjord, and, most likely, cruise ships down below. Absolutely beautiful!

The perfect view..
Oct 2019
On our way over from Grotli to Geiranger, still open, from the heavy snow fall earlier this week & had been closed. Driving down the mountain, Dalsnibba of course closed now. So one must stop at Flydalsjuvet - a perfect view point for Geiranger, and of course no Tourists !

Fantastic Views

Flydalsjuvet is one of the most popular places to take travel photos in Norway because of its impressive view. It is located at the highest of the hairpins of the Eagle Road, and provides a view of Geiranger, the Geirangerfjord, and the Seven Sisters Falls. The viewpoint has one upper and one lower plateau. Any trip to Geiranger won’t be complete without a visit to the Flydalsjuvet Viewpoint.

The best view of Geiranger
Jul 2019 • Solo
I originally was going to hike to this viewpoint from the Norsk Fjordsenter but had trouble finding the right path. Instead I drove here. There was plenty of parking. The drive to the viewpoint was not as high up as I though but ultimately I thought it gave the best view into Geiranger and the fjord as it wasn’t too high. It was much less crowded than the town itself so it was nice to get away from the crowd and I had no problems sitting in the chair for a couple of minutes in the middle of the afternoon

Rewarded with wonderful views on this return walk from Geiranger to flydalsjuvet
Aug 2019
From the tourist information centre walk on the main road behind the hotel Geiranger uphill. there is a church on the left on the hilltop. You may take a shortcut up a steep path to the church and walk though the church grounds to the road on the other side otherwise continue on the road. Don't forget to look back to admire the views.
No official path on roadside but traffic is considerate of walkers. Continue walking passing by Hotel Union and you will see a sign post for Fjord Centre in to the right. We detoured there to visit the public toilets and later returned on our return journey.
You will see a sign for Vinje camping and walk by a waterfall - there is a pathway into the right leading you into Vinje Camping - walk through her over a bridge through the camping site and you shorten your journey taking you away from the road walking. You will end out on the main road on the other side. You will see a sign across the road to the right pointing to a path on the right. a steep path through a field and again you return to the main road. Uphill a few metres and you will see a signpost for Fossen Camping and for Flydalsjuvet among other routes.
You will arrive at Fossen Camping. By the waterfall on the left there is a path with steep steps leading up to the left.
Continue this path - beautiful views down over the valley and you can see the winding road that you have been avoiding.
Almost there - back to the main road - a few more metres up hill and you will arrive at the lower of two viewpoints. The lower stop is a car park for cars and campervans. The buses seem to drive up to the higher stop a few metres up.
A rocky area but open space with beautiful views over Geiranger and a seat with a view with your name on it!! Toilets available here and a picnic area. We returned the same route . Got chatting to a local man who rents rooms who loves to meet people passing by. There are further walks - This man told us about the walk to which gives 360 degree views a further 50 minute walk - Holemyrane - but time did not allow for us to be able to do this. We read to allow 1 hr 10 minutes for the walk up to Flydalsjuvet but it we had many stops along the way so it took us longer. the return journey took about this time. We retraced our steps but detoured when we got to fjord Centre and took the Fossavendring Waterfall walks - boardwalk and steep steps with viewpoints -Storfossen waterfall platform and Fossavendring .
Thoroughly enjoyed this walk. What made it extra special was that we met a lovely Canadian couple who were about to turn back at Vinje Camping as they were unsure of the route and we asked them to join us on the walk. So we met new friends and our paths kept crossing and hope that they will continue to do so. Bring water , a snack and always be prepared for a change in weather.

AMAZING Views
Jul 2019
Definitely worth a stop down if you are driving; likely also worth a cool view even if you have to take a bus up. There are two parking lot levels - if you miss the first one or it's full on buses as you drive downhill, there is also a second one tucked in that was less crowded when we were there.

very beautiful view, but only by fair weather.Other viewpoints are perhaps easier accessible while staying on the main road to Geiranger.
