Flydalsjuvet is a popular viewpoint just outside of Geiranger that offers spectacular views and photo opportunities of Geiranger and Geirangerfjorden. Flydalsjuvet is one of the most popular places to take travel photos, and the iconic Flydalsjuvet Rock can be viewed and photographed from this lookout.

The viewpoint has an upper and a lower plateau and a path that runs between the two. The lower area has restrooms as well as maps and information about the area. Additionally, the lower area has a “Fjordsetet,” or the Fjord Seat, which was unveiled by Her Majesty Queen Sonja in 2003. It was placed in her honor by the travel company Fjord Norway in recognition of her interest in the environment, culture, and history of Norway.
