This spectacular platform towers 640 metres over Aurlandsvangen and juts out in space, providing a panorama view of the vast fjordscape, where the World Heritage Site in Nærøyfjord is also clearly visible. The scenic overlook is also a rest area, offering parking and an airy lavatory structure. The Stegastein Viewpoint is designed and built by Todd Saunders and Tommie Wihelmsen who won the first prize in Norwegian tourist routes competition. It’s one of the most popular attractions in Norway. Stegastein Viewpoint appears as a “V”. The bending part provides the holing power for the whole viewpoint, and the horizontal part is covered with a large piece of glasses to avoid accidents happened. If you are brave enough, you can walk near the furthest point to enjoy the incredible fjord scenery.  Inspired by flickr.com, tours4fun.com and toxel.com.
