Viewpoints in Western Norway

Utsiktspunkter på vestlandetIn western Norway, there are many spectacular viewpoints from where you can see fjords, mountains and valleys. Some places are easily accessible where you can rise out of the car and walk over to the roadside. To other viewpoints you have to walk only a few minutes. And to some you have to walk a little longer. Here you will find a nice mix of all categories, common to them all is a fantastic view.


Trollstigen in RaumaTrollstigen in Romsdal
Trollstigen, in the heart of Romsdal in Møre og Romsdal, is one of the best visited attractions in Norway. The mountains which encircle the Trollstigen road are enormous. Stigfossen waterfall gushes down the mountainside towards the luscious Isterdalen valley. In the middle of all this, Trollstigen road winds it's way up the mountainside. Two viewpoints are made here in connection with the Geiranger-Trollstigen National Tourist Route. There are about five to ten minute walks to the two viewpoints. The Trollstigen Road is closed during the winter.


Geiranger and the GeirangerfjordThe Geirangerfjord at Sunnmøre
The Geirangerfjord in Møre og Romsdal is incorporated into the UNESCO World Heritage. 
And it is not without reason. The fjord, mountains, waterfalls, cultural landscape and the old farms around Geiranger is the perfect mix. It cannot be more beautiful and wilder. Two viewpoints by the road are made here in connection with the Geiranger-Trollstigen National Tourist Route.
