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.
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”!
From the top of Molden, you can enjoy breathtaking views of the fjords.
A few hundred years ago this path was the main road between Jostedal and Lustrafjorden. Vigdalen was then a part of Dale and this path was the road to church. The path is called Bispevegen (The Bishop's road) after Bishop Johan Nordal Brun, who travelled this path when visiting Jostedalen. The year of passing and the first letters of his name are engraved in the mountain beneath Storhaug.

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.
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.

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.
