The National Hiking Trail – Fosseråsa

Fosseråsa was nominated as Norway's first National Tourist Trail in 2019 and takes you from the centre of Geiranger up to the waterfall Storsæterfossen, 550 masl. Along the way you will experience nature, close to forests, landscapes, and the wild forces of water.

Fosseråsa was nominated as Norway's first National Hiking Trail in 2019. The route runs all the way from the centre of Geiranger to the Storsæterfossen waterfall, 550 metres above sea level. Walkers are treated to a wealth of scenic experiences along the way, with close-up views of gushing waters, sheltered deciduous woodlands and idyllic cultural landscapes.

The trail consists of three distinct sections. The first leg is the Waterfall Walk up to the Norwegian Fjord Centre. From there, you continue to the Vesterås farm on a path that winds its way up the hillside. There are several stone pitch sections, expertly constructed by Nepali Sherpas. You may well catch a glimpse of a red squirrel or a deer, and in the spring, there is an enchanting chorus of birds.

The last leg takes you to the Storsæterfossen waterfall, where you can walk behind the cascading waters whilst feeling the untamed spray against your skin and listening to the rumble of wild forces. A dramatic scenery!
