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.
High on glaciers
Long live the Queen of Western Norway!
The well-known nickname for Lodalskåpa, Vestlandsdronninga (the Queen of Western Norway), speaks volumes about just how majestic this mountain is and how royal you will feel when you are at the top! The trip from Bødalsetra up to the cairn on the 2083-metre summit is a long but delightful journey from lush pastures to the snow-covered glacier. The trip does present its challenges: be prepared for some rigorous inclines, some walking on snow and ice, and some rather steep scrambling up the final approach. But once at the top you’ll be rewarded with a wide view over the National Park and an ice landscape you could hardly have imagined.
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”!
Hike to this breathtaking scenic point, chosen by Lonely Planet as one of top ten most spectacular viewing points in the world. The view will leave you mesmerised!
