Fjord Norway Vestland SUNNFJORD

Bicycle route - Skei - Sægrov - Skei

Overview

This is a short and easy trip, which will take you from Skei to Sægrov and back. You start by the end of the Jølstravatnet lake with a view across almost the whole lake, before you start cycling towards the Kjøsnesfjord. Here you can see the steep mountains reflected in the crystal clear water. At the head of the fjord lies Jostedalsbreen glacier. Parts of this trip are on a gravel path.

This scenic cycling route lets you experience the natural beauty that is the land of the famous painter Astrup. The trip starts in the centre of Skei,
by the north side of the Jølstravatnet lake – a famous stop-off place for tourists with a hotel and the popular gift store Audhild Viken. 

The first part of the trip takes you along a walking and cycling path overlooking the Jølstravatnet lake, one of Northern Europe’s best trout
fishing waters. When you get to the pass between Jølstravatnet lake and the Kjøsnesfjord, you will see Jølster’s tallest mountains standing in all their glory, and at the head of the fjord, Jostedalsbreen glacier appears between the mountains.

The renowned artist, Nikolai Astrup, painted several of his paintings here, the motifs of which you will probably recognise. The charming and often
photographed, Grovanipa, stands out in the scenery when you view it from the Kjøsnes bridge. 

As you cycle along the Kjøsnesfjord towards Sægrov, you will see steep and tall mountains on both sides and alongside the verdigris-coloured
water and the views of the fjord, you are cycling through some of the most beautiful natural scenery Norway has to offer.

A short trip on flat terrain suitable for the whole family.
