Hovden i Setesdal
Hovdenuten- 1209 m.a.sl
The higest of the summits, marked from Hovden centre. Follow the river "Otra" upstream on gravel road to " Hovden Høyfjellsent...
This hike is across a varied terrain and changing landscape which makes it a very interesting hke indeed!
The lush Blåstøldalen valley is a striking contrast to the barren mountains around Mount Kjerag. The day’s leg of the round trip passes Blåstølen, an excellent summer pasture farm where only the foundations of the farm remain as testimony to its past.
This trip is dominated by a barren landscape and finding your bearings might be difficult and disorientating, despite this, the path is generally visible as it is a well walked path.
Kløvstien is an old road between Romsdal and Sunnmøre, and it was an important path before Trollstigen opened in 1936. The hike starts in Isterdalen a...
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.
One hot panorama
In the old days if there was ever danger afoot, people would often light a bonfire on the summit of Ytrehornsnakken. The view from the top will certainly ignite the passions of those who take the trip today.
Ytrehornsnakken was a "veteplass" in old times, which basically means that due to its open views and the fact that it was relatively easily accessible by forest, this summit was an appropriate place to warn people of danger by lighting a bonfire. Nowadays people still alert their friends and neighbours from the top, from their phones or cameras with tempting panorama pictures of Nordfjord’s nature at its best. The hike up is easy, just under 450 meters up from Grodås by Hornindalsvatnet (Hornindals Lake). An ideal place to ignite the hiking flame for the younger climbers.
Steep walk through forested terrain passed some huts and old cottages. After a while, the landscape opens up and you see toward Sauda and the fjord. Fr...
Close by Værlandet rises the pronounced landmark Alden, also known as the "Norwegian Horse", almost vertically out of sea level, and visible from more...
Be a mountain farmer for a day
Living history! Perched out on a rocky knoll overlooking Oppstrynsvatnet (Oppstryn Lake) lies the abandoned farm called Segestad.
The trail up to Segestad, which winds up the mountain beside the mighty Glomnesfoss (Glomnes waterfall), not only takes you high up in the mountains but also on a journey back in time. The farm, which is open for visitors, provides a unique insight into how mountain farmers managed to survive only a few generations ago. On the farm you will find information boards about life here in the old days, and you can even jump around in the hay in the barn!
