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. Making your way up towards the bare mountain top reveals more and more views over Eidsbygda, Nordfjord and Hornindalsvatnet. This is the ideal trip for those who do not like backtracking. Yes there are two paths you can go by...to get to the top. Take one up and the other down again. The choice is yours. You’re as free as a bird.
Good vibes on Traudalsnibba
What is about Traudalsnibba that makes the crazy locals build a cabin just below the summit?
Well, the view for one. The highest peak near Sandane in the innermost part of Gloppenfjorden offers an extraordinary mountain experience. Just before you reach the summit there’s a surprise in store, namely Nibbehytta (the Nibbe cabin). This is a cosy cabin built by enthusiasts after the old one was blown away by the wind, a place where you can find some shelter if you don’t want to head back down to the valley straight away. After all, it is easy to stay up there when your mood is at its peak.
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.
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.
See the light
Stick to the narrow path and soon you will see the light.
A salty hike? You won’t be too shocked to find out that the Skongenes lighthouse is, yes, situated by the sea. The trip to this self-service DNT (the Norwegian Trekking Association) cabin goes beyond a headland on the island of Vågsøy, not far from the swimming beach Refviksanden. This is a short hike, perfect for families with children, full of sights, sounds and experiences that you certainly won’t find on mountain hikes - the sound of gulls, a cave with remnants from the stone age, flowers that are only found along the coast. When you get there, you can just sit in silence for a while and count the waves.
Lodal valley and Kjenndal Glacier should not be missed. Beautiful scenery and a dramatic history make Lodal valley a place quite out of the ordinary....
Be a mountain farmer for a day
Living history! Perched out on a rocky knoll overlooking Oppstrynsvatnet (Oppstryn Lake) lies the abandoned farm called Segestad.
The trail up to Segestad, which winds up the mountain beside the mighty Glomnesfoss (Glomnes waterfall), not only takes you high up in the mountains but also on a journey back in time. The farm, which is open for visitors, provides a unique insight into how mountain farmers managed to survive only a few generations ago. On the farm you will find information boards about life here in the old days, and you can even jump around in the hay in the barn!
Experience the majestic Geiranger Fjord and the old road across the Flofjell mountain on a bicycle.
