An embarrassment of riches You can either choose to eat your lunch pack and on an idyllic meadow, or up on the summit with sweeping panoramic views over the fjord and mountains - right in the middle of Nordfjord. The trip up to Trollenykjen near the town of Nordfjordeid will present you with at least two highlights. Halfway to the top, you’ll come across the beautiful mountain farm Skipenesetra. An hour later, you’ll be standing on top of Trollenykjen - with views over Hornindalsvatnet, Nordfjorden, as well as mountains in all directions. You almost feel overwhelmed with guilt when you’re on this peak. How is it possible to get so much out of  a couple of hour’s walk? Well, some mountains just give more than others.
