Showing 1-10 of 70 results
Thinking of a proper winter holiday this time? Fimbul is based in the middle of winter time Norway, in the calm and quiet Jostedalen. Without crowds and queues we give you top backcountry skiing, ice climbing, avalanche courses etc.
Fimbul Jostedal offers guided skiing trips, ice climbing in frozen waterfalls, avanlanch courses and courses in nordic skiing, both in Jostedalen and other places in the Luster area during winter and early spring.
The route starts at the information board in Saurdal at the top of the Saurdal road and is marked with red and white markings and stone cairns. The route goes through mountain valleys, along water courses and to mountain tops.
First walk along route 5 towards Munkeggi (NB do not take the turn off to Hanevikelvi) until you come to a sign towards Hanevikstølen. From here take the old path into the Saurdal valley.
At the outlet of Målsnesvatnet lake the path continues over the bridge and towards Hanevikstølen, a summer farm which was in use until 1955.
From Hanevikstølen follow a path up over the mountain side and on towards the plateau between Storevarden and Bukkaberg. Here you can choose to take a detour up to Storevarden.
In Fagradalen you meet route 9 which takes you further to Spenane (1136m) and Raudmelen (972m) and from there on route 7 down to Balestrand.
Or you can of course choose to go back to Saurdal.

Scale the heights of Skåla
If you want to get to the top in life, you have to be prepared for some uphill battles. To reach the top of Skåla (1848 m), you won’t find a longer uphill stretch in the whole of Norway.
Skåla - this imposingly beautiful giant of a mountain - towers over the village of Loen. A good man-made track winds its way through the rocky terrain a whopping 1848 vertical metres from the shoreline of the fjord. Skålatårnet - the tower at the summit - is not just the kind of DNT (Norwegian Trekking Association) self-service cabin where you spend the night or simply whip up a well-deserved warm cup of coffee on the summit. This was originally built as a sanatarium to cure illness, and the place hasn’t lost its remedial qualities, as there can scarcely be anything healthier than fjord views and a cool glacial breeze.
