Lysefjord is one of the most famous fjords in Norway. Take a trip along the fjord to Flørli and Lysebotn. Here you can walk in the world’s longest staircase. 4.444 steps take you 740 meters up the mountain. The staircase was originally built in connection with the power station at Flørli. The station was built in 1917 and the plan was to secure power for a planned smelleder in Flørli.
In the 18th century, Flørli was a vibrant community with a number of residents and its own school. Today, only two residents remain.

The Flørli Staircase
Flørli is a well-known tourist destination. There are 4 444 steps up to the top. The trip up and down takes about 3-4 hours, so those who choose to walk the stairs will come aboard as the cruise ventures back out.
The view from the top of the stairs is well worth the struggle. We guarantee it. Please do not forget your camera.

Guided village walk in Flørli
For those interested, Hessel Baker and Flørli4444 offer a guided village walk in Flørli. The trip costs NOK 100,- for adults and NOK 50,- for children.
