Fuglesteg is an old mountain farm situated high up on the side of the valley over the village of Fortun. The farm from 1650 was first home to 1 family and then later to 2 families for 300 years. In 1946 one of the sites were abandoned and then in 1968 the other. Luster Turlag has now retored Fuglesteg and it is now a unmanned turist cabin.
