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.

Nordfjordeid

Trollenyken

An embarrassment of riches You can either choose to eat your lunch pack and on an idyllic meadow, or up on the summit with sweeping panoramic views over the fjord and mountains - right in the middle of Nordfjord. The trip up to Trollenykjen near the town of Nordfjordeid will present you with at least two highlights. Halfway to the top, you’ll come across the beautiful mountain farm Skipenesetra. An hour later, you’ll be standing on top of Trollenykjen - with views over Hornindalsvatnet, Nordfjorden, as well as mountains in all directions. You almost feel overwhelmed with guilt when you’re on this peak. How is it possible to get so much out of  a couple of hour’s walk? Well, some mountains just give more than others.

Stadlandet

Indre - Ytre Fure

The coast is clear Follow the path along the pebbles to Ytre Fure at Stadlandet and you´ll  get a new outlook. The walk from Indre Fure (Inner Fure) to Ytre Fure (Outer Fure) is a unique reminder of how previous generations lived. The roadless farm Ytre Fure was abandoned after the war. Generation after generation lived here on this narrow strip of land between the mountains and the ocean. Today the trail up to the farm is a gem for hikers. The walk along the rocky seashore brings you closer to the forces of nature, and makes you think why anyone would want to settle here. But once you’re there, with the idyllic seascape, it’s easy to forget about the struggles, and you begin to wonder why they ever left.

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

Via Ferrata Loen

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!
