Unspoilt scenery in all directions

Rising 860 metres straight from the sea, the hike to Europe’s highest sea cliff Hornelen is an experience out of the ordinary. 

About the area
The Fjord Coast

The Fjord Coast has hundreds of unspoilt islands as well as deep fjords and mountains rising out of the sea. There are over 200 hiking trails to choose from, including the 15 North Sea Trails – family-friendly, easy hikes with open views of the coast. Over 50 waterfalls have given this region the name “fosseheimen”, which means the home of the waterfalls.
