Stegastein Viewpoint

I took a day off from riding to do the famous Flåm Railway, stopping off at the Stegastein Viewpoint on the way. The view from the platform is spectacular, especially when you're treated - as I was - to a vivid rainbow stretching out across the Aurlandsfjord below.

Motorcyclists beware; the hairpins on the way up are pretty narrow and places, with a very limited view of what's coming at you the other way. The car park is on a steep gradient too, so parking a motorcycle can be a bit precarious.
