The Hornet’s rest Take it easy up on top of Ryssdalshornet, affectionately know as Hornet. It's not every day you feel like you are in the middle of a postcard. Ryssdalshornet is the subject of many a photo shoot and is best seen from the town of Sandane. The pyramid-shaped peak rises from Breimsvatnet (Breim’s Lake) and it's easy to find your way up to Ryssdalsstøylen and the trail that leads onwards. There is some light scrambling on the way, and you will find a rope at some stage to boost you up a steep section, from where you can look forward to the summit and a well-deserved rest.
