Stegastein is a scenic overlook on Sogn og Fjordane County Road 243 in Norway.[1][2] The 30-metre (98 ft) long and 4-metre (13 ft) wide platform of steel and laminated pine overlooks Aurlandsvangen and the Aurlandsfjord.[3] It was designed by Todd Saunders and Tommie Wilhelmsen and completed in 2006. They won first prize to an invited competition in 2002. This project is part of a national program of tourist routes commissioned by the Norwegian Highway Department.[4]
