Flørli - 4444 steps

During the last 100 years Flørli has been transformed from a combined rural and industrial area to a cultural area. You should disembark in this newborn cultural place and see the dramatic transformations the area has experienced.

You will get to know the story behind the hydroelectric power station, the water pipes feeding the station and the 4444 steps built along the water pipes, supposedly the longest wooden stairs in the world. You can also use Flørli as the starting point for an overnight trip into the mountains. Included in the trip is the overnight stop and a meal recreating the taste as well as the presence of history.

We strongly advise that you only climb up the stairs, and descend by one of the round trips. Going down is potentially hazardous, and may cause difficulties for other hikers coming up.


You can walk up the stairs and go straight down Rallarvegen or there is a great number of trials that can make the hike longer if you want. There is a turist information centre close to the ferry port in Flørli. 

Drive from Hjelmeland to Songesand. From her you take the ferry over to Flørli. 

We advice our guests to book a ticket for the ferry. Remember to include the car.
