Overview
More
The views over the fjords and mountains in the Sunnmore Alps are spectacular.   Season Jun-Oct.   Duration 2-3 hours. Distance and total height gain: 3 km. 3,520 ft.   Access Bus www.fjord1.no or car/ferry in the direction of Saebo. Take the ferry without the car to Leknes, or take the car with you to Urke.    Worth noting The tour down from the southern peak and through a narrow gorge between the south peak and the middle peak may be regarded as demanding with some moderate climbing. The view is best from the southern peak in any case.

Not an easy hike for someone completely out of shape but there's also plenty of rest stops to just enjoy the views as you head up. I think the more interesting views are not even the ones at the very top.

I separately walked and jogged up these stairs and they provide a good workout. The views keep on improving as you climb. Well-worth the free exercise!

From the town you can see the stairs...all 418 steps. You get to them by walking through this really nice park. It is steep if you are afraid of heights...but worth the hike up and it was very crowded. But you can take your time...More

We were told it was a must do and it was. Both of us are a little advanced in age and made it easily, but found the icy steps a little challenging. Would be brilliant in summer. Great view of the city and surrounds. Beware...More
