Nicely designed viewpoint on Gaularfjellet. When driving from Dragsvik you can see the road taken from the top. Good place to make pictures.

Very cool view(it's safe) from the top of the fiord. It was on our way to the waterfall path so we took it as an amazing bonus. We spent there 10min. Watch for sheeps along the steep curvy road.
