Hovden i Setesdal
Three-day cabin-to-cabin hike. As the first stretch only takes two and a half hours, you may start late afternoon or early evening; making this a perfect weekend hike.
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.
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.
This is a fantastic footpath between Lårdal and Dalen. A large part of the walk follows the mountain edge up to 800 metres above the Telemark Canal.
This is a very steep trail for those who fancy something extra challenging.
Length: 650 m up, 1,8 km down
