Byrkjelo

Mt. Eggenipa

Scramble up the Egg Eggenipa is eye candy for those who drive past it. But why not just stop your car and climb to the top? You too can be an eye-catcher. Seen from Byrkjelo, the freestanding Eggenipa rises majestically at the entrance of the Våtedalen (Wet Valley). The hike up to the summit is actually easier than it looks. From the parking lot at Øvredalen there is a short steep section, and from then the egg will need a little scrambling along the surprisingly broad ridge. When you finally reach the beacon you can relish the feeling of being noticed - that moment when you are the garnish atop this mouth watering mountain.

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.

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.

Hjelledalen

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

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.
