There is no better view of the Nærøyfjord than the one you can experience from Bakkanosi. The journey from Jordalen is through easily negotiated terrain while the climb itself covers a demanding 800 meters.
Although the hike to Bakkanosi is long, the terrain is relatively kind. The reward for making the climb to the top is a stunning view of the Sognefjord and of the UNESCO World Heritage site at Nærøyfjord. The view from the 1300-meter summit looking straight down to the Nærøyfjord is literally breathtaking.
Park your car in Jordalen and set off through Slettedalen towards Slettedalstjørni. Continue from here to the summit at Bakkanosi.
Since the trail is not marked it is recommended that only experienced hikers attempt this journey and only when the weather permits you to do so.
