Description

Hike for tough people! The Flørli stairs have 4.444 steps and is one of the longest wooden staircases in the world. The staircase follows the watergates supplying the hydropower station at the quay. The stairs end at the Ternevass dam. Well above the treeline, you will enjoy the great view out of the Lysefjord and toward the Preikestolen massive from up there.

If you continue your hike, the path goes through undulating highland terrain until you get to the large Flørlivatn lake where you cross the DNT marked path to Blåfjellenden. Follow this path back down the mountain. When you've ome halfway, you will pass the Flørlistølen STF cabin.

Back on the quay is the summer open Flørli gallery and café in the historic hydropower station - enjoy a well deserved snack here!
