The area called Hareidlandet, between Hareid and Ulstein, offers numerous hikes in a varied terrain. Two of the most popular routes are:
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.
Moderate, family friendly walk to the summit of Rundemellen, a well-known landmark that can be seen from many areas of Valdres and offers a spectacular...
Moderately demanding walking (no climbing or scrambling) ascent. Highly rewarding view from the summit towards Jotunheimen and Valdres.
Folgefonna National Park
Start and stopping point
Follow highway 48 from the parking lot approx. 300 meters beyond the bridge...
There is no better view of the Nærøyfjord than the one you can experience from Bakkanosi. The journey from Jordalen is through easily negotiated terrain while the climb itself covers a demanding 800 meters.
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!
Kattanakken (the cat’s neck) - where no-one thought it possible to hike. How wrong could they be!
When the weather is fine here, it’s showtime! From the top of Kattanakken you will see Briksdal Glacier in all its glory far down below, surrounded by rugged mountains and cascading waterfalls. Your admission ticket to this show is your own exertion - a solid but feasible workout up steep terrain and then some scrambling as you approach the final ridge. From some angles this hardly looks possible, but don’t listen to what they say about curiosity killing the cat, as scaling this cat’s neck is very achievable.
A walk of contrasts
If you want to get the most out of the top of Ljøsuregga, you‘ll have to sneak through the rock piles.
This is a trip full of contrasts! On the way up to Ljøsuregga, the mountain experiences are virtually lining up for you. Firstly, you’ll pass a multitude of swimming holes up along the lush river to Kjenndalsvatnet (Lake Kjenndal). Then from boulder to boulder you walk up through the rocky debris towards the summit, before it gradually flattens out, when you’ll probably notice a feeling of freedom coming over you. Then finally, a beautiful flat plateau awaits, providing views in all directions, and you’ll feel on top of the world!
Far-flung view in all directions, where most of the trail is above the tree line.
Start from the cottage are Primhovda Sør. Several cultural monument...
