Join us on a spectacular mountain hike in the idyllic Hjørundfjord region. We begin by taking an old farm road, followed by a steep climb up the rugged pathway toward the top. Then, we ascend a stone stairway for the last 550 yards. A stunning view will greet you at the summit.
Continue the trail up the hill to see the village of Sæbø and explore an abandoned bear cave.
Before descending, we’ll take a coffee break in the Leknes Valley, overlooking Urke. Here, we’ll enjoy breathtaking views of the fjord arm and mountains. Taking the same road back, we’ll stop off at the local grocer to browse authentic Norwegian goods.
We’ll end our journey at the Kaihuset Café and quench our thirst with Slogen, a beer named after the majestic mountain seen on the other side of the fjord.
