Skageflå hike

Skageflå mountain farm


August 2021

Hiking to the mountain farm Skageflå is a really nice day hike starting in Geiranger. You can either take a boat to a bridge below the farm Skageflå or simply walk there and back from Geiranger. The last option is a bit more streneous  since it brings a higher ascent but fully workable if you are fit and take your time. From the farm you have a lovely view of the Geiranger fjord and the Seven Sisters Waterfall.

Skageflå is an abandoned mountain farm lovely situated above the Geiranger fjord. If you choose to go there by boat you have a rather steep hike to start with, an ascent of about 300 metres. From Skageflå you have yet another ascent to Homlungsetra Mountain Farm at 544 metres. From there is a really nice descent all the way back to Geiranger.


If you choose to skip the boat you have the option to either start in Geiranger or go by bike or car to Homlung which shortens the hike with 2 kilomtres one way. You walk the same way back. 


Starting in Homlung this really nice trail take you through a lush forest and pretty soon you will get your first glimpse of the fjord from far above.

What did we think of the hike?

It is a really nice hike all the way and perfect if you are close to Geiranger. The trail is really, really nice but it for sure took some effort to go down to Skageflå knowing you had the same way up later on. For most people this hike is a full day´s hike.
