Segestad

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!

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!

Mt. Skåla

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.

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.

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.
