Nordfjord Hornindal

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.
