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.
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.

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.
