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.
A walk of contrasts
If you want to get the most out of the top of Ljøsuregga, you‘ll have to sneak through the rock piles.
This is a trip full of contrasts! On the way up to Ljøsuregga, the mountain experiences are virtually lining up for you. Firstly, you’ll pass a multitude of swimming holes up along the lush river to Kjenndalsvatnet (Lake Kjenndal). Then from boulder to boulder you walk up through the rocky debris towards the summit, before it gradually flattens out, when you’ll probably notice a feeling of freedom coming over you. Then finally, a beautiful flat plateau awaits, providing views in all directions, and you’ll feel on top of the world!
Kattanakken (the cat’s neck) - where no-one thought it possible to hike. How wrong could they be!
When the weather is fine here, it’s showtime! From the top of Kattanakken you will see Briksdal Glacier in all its glory far down below, surrounded by rugged mountains and cascading waterfalls. Your admission ticket to this show is your own exertion - a solid but feasible workout up steep terrain and then some scrambling as you approach the final ridge. From some angles this hardly looks possible, but don’t listen to what they say about curiosity killing the cat, as scaling this cat’s neck is very achievable.
