Stadlandet

Indre - Ytre Fure

The coast is clear Follow the path along the pebbles to Ytre Fure at Stadlandet and you´ll  get a new outlook. The walk from Indre Fure (Inner Fure) to Ytre Fure (Outer Fure) is a unique reminder of how previous generations lived. The roadless farm Ytre Fure was abandoned after the war. Generation after generation lived here on this narrow strip of land between the mountains and the ocean. Today the trail up to the farm is a gem for hikers. The walk along the rocky seashore brings you closer to the forces of nature, and makes you think why anyone would want to settle here. But once you’re there, with the idyllic seascape, it’s easy to forget about the struggles, and you begin to wonder why they ever left.

Måløy

Skongenes Fyr

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.
