You do not know what freedom is until you've made the trip to Libbera.
This trip guarantees a free blow wave hairstyle on the way! It should also be pointed out that Dragseidet is where the Vikings ships often took shelter from the treacherous seas around Stad (and where Olav Tryggvason converted four counties to Christianity in the year 997). You can bring the story back to life along the old church road between Stad and Selje. Savour the smell of salt and the high mountains. Take a mental snapshot of the sky meeting the sea. And of course, not to mention the feel of the wind in your hair.

See the light
Stick to the narrow path and soon you will see the light.
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.
Enjoy ocean views
Veten (the Beacon) is 613 meters above sea level. Quite literally above the sea.
Exclusive sea views! If you wish, you can start from the quay side. From Måløy town centre the there is a good path to Veten along a mountain ridge, ending up at a peak which looks out towards the westernmost part of Norway from its best vantage point. Take a sip from your thermos, then put it down and enjoy the view of the West Cape, the ocean and all the beautiful mountains. Do you realise how rich you are? Rich in natural experience, at least. All of this is yours.
