Stryn

Mt. Gryta

Grytings and salutations from high above Stryn If you stand on top of Gryta (the casserole) you are, if only for a moment, standing at the highest point of the town of Stryn. Gryta is the Norwegian word for casserole -  the warm, energy-giving everyday meal which is easy to whip up -  just like the nice uphill trail from the parking area of Bøasetra. The trip ends up at a spectacular viewpoint from a steep cliff that will fill your stomach with butterflies. Up here, you can spy on all the people in the centre of Stryn and send them a pleasant thought, as they’ll be blissfully unaware of what you’re being served up on this mountain top.

Loen

Lodalskåpa

High on glaciers Long live the Queen of Western Norway! The well-known nickname for Lodalskåpa, Vestlandsdronninga (the Queen of Western Norway), speaks volumes about just how majestic this mountain is and how royal you will feel when you are at the top! The trip from Bødalsetra up to the cairn on the 2083-metre summit is a long but delightful journey from lush pastures to the snow-covered glacier. The trip does present its challenges: be prepared for some rigorous inclines, some walking on snow and ice, and some rather steep scrambling up the final approach. But once at the top you’ll be rewarded with a wide view over the National Park and an ice landscape you could hardly have imagined.

Selje

Libbera

Libberalisation You do not know what freedom is until you've made the trip to Libbera. This trip guarantees a free blow wave hairstyle on the way! It should also be pointed out that Dragseidet is where the Vikings ships often took shelter from the treacherous seas around Stad (and where Olav Tryggvason converted four counties to Christianity in the year 997). You can bring the story back to life along the old church road between Stad and Selje. Savour the smell of salt and the high mountains. Take a mental snapshot of the sky meeting the sea. And of course, not to mention the feel of the wind in your hair.

Briksdalsbre

Kattanakken

9 lives 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.
