Selje

Walking across the island of Selja to Selja Monastery

Abbey Road The walk over the island Selja ends where Christianity in Norway started. St Sunniva’s cave and the Selja Abbey are extremely well-preserved reminders keeping the area’s rich past alive. Legend has it that St. Sunniva was was trapped in this cave during a rock avalanche while seeking refuge from the hedonistic King Håkon Jarl, and it has become one of the most important pilgrimage destinations in Norway. The best way to experience Selja is to follow the narrow path - either via the top of the island or along the seaside.

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.

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.

Hornindal

Mt. Hornindalsrokken

Rokken roll There are many mountains that vie for our attention in the Nordfjord area, but it’s Hornindalsrokken (Rokken) that really stands out. With her sharp, pointy profile it is almost impossible not to notice this mountain top north of Hornindalssætra. But what does the world look like from her summit? Hornindalsrokken, or "Rokken" as she is affectionately known, is tougher than she first appears to be. From Sætredalen the trail is quite steep, but is surprisingly easy for mountain hikers. And there's only one thing to say about the view: it “rokks”!

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.
