Flørli and the magic number: 4444 

The tiny, tranquil village of Flørli is only reachable by a ferry service that calls upon the quay four times a day in the summer season, or by hiking over the mountains. Flørli 4444 is the name of the biggest attraction in the village and your next challenge: the world´s longest wooden stairs.

The hamlet was built around the old hydropower plant, and the 4444 stairs follow the steep mountainside up where the old pipelines lead to Ternevatnet lake. The hike is challenging, but the view of the Lysefjord is worth the sweat, not to mention how great it feels when you finally reach the top and can look back down at all the steps you have just climbed!

 The old power plant is now made into a museum and gallery, and here you will also find the reception for HI Flørli 4444 Hostel, where you can meet up with fellow travelers. Due to the lack of roads or noisy traffic, Flørli is the perfect place to disconnect from the hustle and bustle of daily life and re-connect with nature.

You can go fishing, swimming and canoeing in the fjord, use the ferry connections to go on hiking adventures to Kjeragbolten and Preikestolen, or simply put your feet up and relax in the easy-going village. Living this peacefully requires a little planning, so make sure you check the ferry connections and buy your ticket in advance from The Fjords and Kolumbus, especially if you plan to travel outside of the summer season June – August.
