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”!

This walk has everything the most experienced hiker could want but requires fine and stable weather if it is to be an enjoyable experience. The walk is long and demanding and unsuitable for children.

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.

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.
