The Hornet’s rest
Take it easy up on top of Ryssdalshornet, affectionately know as Hornet. It's not every day you feel like you are in the middle of a postcard.
Ryssdalshornet is the subject of many a photo shoot and is best seen from the town of Sandane. The pyramid-shaped peak rises from Breimsvatnet (Breim’s Lake) and it's easy to find your way up to Ryssdalsstøylen and the trail that leads onwards. There is some light scrambling on the way, and you will find a rope at some stage to boost you up a steep section, from where you can look forward to the summit and a well-deserved rest.

Scramble up the Egg
Eggenipa is eye candy for those who drive past it. But why not just stop your car and climb to the top? You too can be an eye-catcher.
Seen from Byrkjelo, the freestanding Eggenipa rises majestically at the entrance of the Våtedalen (Wet Valley). The hike up to the summit is actually easier than it looks. From the parking lot at Øvredalen there is a short steep section, and from then the egg will need a little scrambling along the surprisingly broad ridge. When you finally reach the beacon you can relish the feeling of being noticed - that moment when you are the garnish atop this mouth watering mountain.

Scale the heights of Skåla
If you want to get to the top in life, you have to be prepared for some uphill battles. To reach the top of Skåla (1848 m), you won’t find a longer uphill stretch in the whole of Norway.
Skåla - this imposingly beautiful giant of a mountain - towers over the village of Loen. A good man-made track winds its way through the rocky terrain a whopping 1848 vertical metres from the shoreline of the fjord. Skålatårnet - the tower at the summit - is not just the kind of DNT (Norwegian Trekking Association) self-service cabin where you spend the night or simply whip up a well-deserved warm cup of coffee on the summit. This was originally built as a sanatarium to cure illness, and the place hasn’t lost its remedial qualities, as there can scarcely be anything healthier than fjord views and a cool glacial breeze.
