Briksdalsbre

Kattanakken

9 lives 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.

Byrkjelo

Mt. Eggenipa

Scramble up the Egg Eggenipa is eye candy for those who drive past it. But why not just stop your car and climb to the top? You too can be an eye-catcher. Seen from Byrkjelo, the freestanding Eggenipa rises majestically at the entrance of the Våtedalen (Wet Valley). The hike up to the summit is actually easier than it looks. From the parking lot at Øvredalen there is a short steep section, and from then the egg will need a little scrambling along the surprisingly broad ridge. When you finally reach the beacon you can relish the feeling of being noticed - that moment when you are the garnish atop this mouth watering mountain.

Loen

Mt. Skåla

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.

Stryn

Mt. Gryta

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.
