Cruise across the turquoise colored Lysefjord to Flørli and climb up the 4444 wooden steps to reach the top of the world’s longest wooden staircase.

As you sail across the 25-km-long (15 mi) Lysefjord on your way to Flørli, you will get to experience famous sights like Preikestolen from below and the Hengjane Falls.

Once the home of a power plant, the cute Flørli village has reinvented itself and has become a popular attraction for national and international visitors. 

Its trademark, the world’s longest wooden staircase, takes visitors 740 m  (2427 ft) above sea level. Though a challenging activity, the views of the fjord along the way are rewarding. If you think that 4,444 steps sound a lot, there are plenty of alternative hikes that are equally beautiful to explore.
