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.
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.
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!
