Join us on a spectacular mountain hike in the idyllic Hjørundfjord region. We begin by taking an old farm road and then it's a steep climb up the rugged pathway towards the top. Then, we ascend a stone stairsway for the last 500 metres. On reaching the summit, you’ll be greeted by the stunning view.  

Continue following the trail up the hill to see the village of Sæbø, and explore an abandoned bear cave.  

Before descending, we take a coffee break in the Leknes valley overlooking Urke, as well as the breath-taking views of the fjord arm and mountains. Taking the same road back, we stop off at the local grocer to browse their authentic Norwegian goods.  

We end our journey at the Kaihuset Café and quench our thirst on Slogen, a beer named after the majestic mountain seen on the other side of the fjord.
