Join a guided walk through the fjord village of Urke and into a beautiful valley in the heart of the Sunnmøre Alps.  

In April and early May, see the snowcapped peaks that make this area popular for ski touring. Later in the season, you’ll have the chance to visit a traditional shieling, a shepherd’s shelter at the village’s summer grazing meadows. Here, you can learn about Norway’s farming history up close. 

As you walk, you will learn more about everyday life in this region and hear stories about the mountains, the fjords, and the small villages of the Hjørundfjord.
