Hiking in Flørli
Spend three days in Flørli:
we expect snow in the Flørli Stairs from the end of november. Hiking the stairs with snow is not recommended: it is slippery in steep sections and at the peak of winter there is snow avalanche danger. March: don’t yet hike the stairs as there is too much snow at the top. April: depending on snow melting, you will generally be able to hike the stairs from the middle of april. All winter: Flørneset Opp and Flørli Cliffhike are accessible hikes all year with little or no snow!
4444 Stairs – Complete
Difficulty: advanced. Beauty: 4/5. Warning: this path has steep and exposed sections! Warning: one direction only, as described – do not walk down steep and slippery stairs and boardwalks.
Stroll to the point Flørneset
Minimum to bring: half a litre of water. At the top of the stairs you can refill from the lake. Sturdy shoes as the path down is rocky and uneven. Sections of the path turn into a river with rainfall! A wind blocking jacket as it is much colder and often windy at the top of the stairs.
Study a map. You can buy suitable topographic maps in the Flørli café. There is also a map on the wall of the café to take pictures of.
Spring: there generally is snow at the top of the stairs until the middle of april. First weeks of april: send us a mail to ask if it’s safe to go. March: don’t go, as there is snow in dangerous, steep sections of the stairs.
Autumn: bring a flashlight if you start your hike in the afternoon. The first problematic amounts of snow are expected in the first part of november: don’t hike the stairs after that.
Winter: the stairs are closed due to snow. Consider hiking Flørneset Opp or Flørli Cliffhike, which generally will still be doable.
