Overview
Details

Geiranger – Skageflå – Homlong
The hillside farm where world natural heritage was celebrated in 2006 and where the royal celebrated their silver wedding anniversary in 1993.
The trip starts by boat from Geiranger. You disembark at Skagehola and start climbing the trail winding its way uphill. It is very steep, but steps have been carved into the rocks along the most exposed stretches, and the trail is secured by hand rails. It is a very popular outing, also used a lot by families with children; however, smaller children should not walk there alone. Grand view all along, and a rather majestic vista from the farm: the fjord and the waterfall s “Dei sju systre” (The Seven Sisters”)

A good trail continues uphill from Skageflå (250 m.a.s.l.) in steep and somewhat airy terrain to Homlongsætra (summer dairy)(544 m.a.s.l.). Along the way you pass by the summer dairy remains at Bjønnastien.

From Homlungsætra to Homlong you walk gently downhill on a route which all along is close to the precipice towards the fjord. Several cultural heritage sites next to the path are marked.

 

BOAT TRANSPORT TO SKAGEFLÅ

Combine a sightseeing trip on the water with a hike to Skageflå, the best-known of the fjord farms along the Geirangerfjord. Norway’s King Harald and Queen Sonja celebrated their silver wedding anniversary at Skageflå in 1993. The Queen also unveiled an official UNESCO World Heritage plaque here in June 2006.

The drop-off service is included in the fjordtour with our sightseeing boat. The MS Geirangerfjord stops at Skagehola at the end of the tour on the way back to Geiranger. From Skagehola it takes about 45 minutes to go up to the farm Skageflå. After taking a break with a fantastic view you can either hike back to Geiranger (4 hours) or you go back down to Skagehola and use the pick-up service with our Sightseeing boat. The pick-up service is included in the same ticket.

Safety note: All hiking is at your responsibility. Use common sense when you are in nature. Only go on the hike with firm footwear (hiking boots) and enough to drink.
