    Day 5 - Hike Mt. Prest with panoramic views across the Aurlandsfjord

    Prest at 1,478 metres above sea level offers panoramic views across the Aurlandsfjord. Meet your guide this morning and drive to the start of the walk. There’s a good, marked path all the way, gentle to start, getting steeper further up. There’s a sheer drop at Røyrgrindgjelet, where the path runs steeply down towards the farms below Prest.

    The best views across the fjord landscape, Aurland and Flåm are from the beacon at 1,363 metres above sea level. The actual peak itself is just over 100 metres further up – in altitude, that is. The trip to Prest is around 2.5 kilometres long and you should expect to spend just over 3 hours getting there and back plus stops for cake and coffee.

    Return to Flåm to board the express ferry to Bergen. Take in the fresh air on Norway’s longest fjord, the Sognefjord, during this 5-hour ferry-ride towards Bergen. Check into your centrally located hotel at the end of the day.
