A salty hike? You won’t be too shocked to find out that the Skongenes lighthouse is, yes, situated by the sea. The trip to this self-service DNT (the Norwegian Trekking Association) cabin goes beyond a headland on the island of Vågsøy, not far from the swimming beach Refviksanden. This is a short hike, perfect for families with children, full of sights, sounds and experiences that you certainly won’t find on mountain hikes - the sound of gulls, a cave with remnants from the stone age, flowers that are only found along the coast. When you get there, you can just sit in silence for a while and count the waves.
The walk over the island Selja ends where Christianity in Norway started.
St Sunniva’s cave and the Selja Abbey are extremely well-preserved reminders keeping the area’s rich past alive. Legend has it that St. Sunniva was was trapped in this cave during a rock avalanche while seeking refuge from the hedonistic King Håkon Jarl, and it has become one of the most important pilgrimage destinations in Norway. The best way to experience Selja is to follow the narrow path - either via the top of the island or along the seaside.
Between Stryn Ski Centre and Ullsheim in Markane there is a great area for bicycling! Easy, rugged terrain and views of mountains and the fjord.
