"The finest ice-scenery in Europe", said the English mountaineer William Cecil Slingsby about the three wild ice-falls called Lokebreen, Odinbreen and Torsbreen which tumble down from the Jostedalsbreen glacier at the face of Austerdalsbreen. Here you can get just a taste of the wild glacier landscape without having to walk over the glacier itself.

See the light
Stick to the narrow path and soon you will see the light.
A salty hike? You won’t be too shocked to find out that the Skongenes lighthouse is, yes, situated by the sea. The trip to this self-service DNT (the Norwegian Trekking Association) cabin goes beyond a headland on the island of Vågsøy, not far from the swimming beach Refviksanden. This is a short hike, perfect for families with children, full of sights, sounds and experiences that you certainly won’t find on mountain hikes - the sound of gulls, a cave with remnants from the stone age, flowers that are only found along the coast. When you get there, you can just sit in silence for a while and count the waves.
Enjoy ocean views

Grytings and salutations from high above Stryn
If you stand on top of Gryta (the casserole) you are, if only for a moment, standing at the highest point of the town of Stryn.
Gryta is the Norwegian word for casserole - the warm, energy-giving everyday meal which is easy to whip up - just like the nice uphill trail from the parking area of Bøasetra. The trip ends up at a spectacular viewpoint from a steep cliff that will fill your stomach with butterflies. Up here, you can spy on all the people in the centre of Stryn and send them a pleasant thought, as they’ll be blissfully unaware of what you’re being served up on this mountain top.
There are many mountains that vie for our attention in the Nordfjord area, but it’s Hornindalsrokken (Rokken) that really stands out.
With her sharp, pointy profile it is almost impossible not to notice this mountain top north of Hornindalssætra. But what does the world look like from her summit? Hornindalsrokken, or "Rokken" as she is affectionately known, is tougher than she first appears to be. From Sætredalen the trail is quite steep, but is surprisingly easy for mountain hikers. And there's only one thing to say about the view: it “rokks”!
