The trail from Skjeggedal to Trolltunga is long and hard. The ascent is close to 1,000m (3.000ft). The starting point is in Skjeggedal, 7 km from Tysse...
Hit the wall!
If you thought the steep hillsides in Nordfjord are impressive to look at, why not impress yourself and climb them all the way up to the top?
Admittedly, hanging from a steep mountainside above a fjord is not something you do every day, and you would think it sounds strenuous and somewhat dangerous. However, thanks to a well-prepared climbing track to the top of Hoven (1010 meters above the fjord), most people manage to climb the Via Ferrata trail (“iron road”) in Loen. A guide is with you all the way and with a harness attached, you can’t fall. It is just a matter of taking in the view!
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.
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.
A bird's eye view
See Nordfjordeid from a new angle. Take a trip up the Rindehornet.
Forest tracks and good trails lead you through the woods from the Rindane farm. Making your way up towards the bare mountain top reveals more and more views over Eidsbygda, Nordfjord and Hornindalsvatnet. This is the ideal trip for those who do not like backtracking. Yes there are two paths you can go by...to get to the top. Take one up and the other down again. The choice is yours. You’re as free as a bird.
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.

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.
August - September
Moderately demanding walking (no climbing or scrambling) ascent. Highly rewarding view from the summit towards Jotunheimen and Valdres.
