Take the long climb up 4,444 steps to the top of the mountainside and take in the spectacular fjord views. Flørli, which has been inhabited on and off since at least the seventeenth century, is beautifully located amidst 1000-meter-high mountains along the southern shore of the Lysefjord. In 1916, construction began on a hydro-electric power plant, which, from 1918 until 1950, supplied electricity to the city of Stavanger. At its peak (1917), 142 people were employed at the plant; quite an impressive number considering that only 13 permanent residences were ever built near the site. This is a demanding 2.5-hour, ~3.2 km (round-trip) climb/hike with a total ascent of just over 750 meters.
