The views over the fjords and mountains in the Sunnmøre Alps are spectacular.


Season Jun-Oct.


Duration 2-3 hours. Distance and total height gain: 3 km. 3,520 ft.


Access Bus www.fjord1.no or car/ferry in the direction of Sæbø. Take the ferry without the car to Leknes, or take the car with you to Urke.


 Worth noting The tour down from the southern peak and through a narrow gorge between the south peak and the middle peak may be regarded as demanding with some moderate climbing. The view is best from the southern peak in any case.
