Hellesylt, Norway-port

One of the highlights of the fjordlands, this hamlet sits quietly at the head of the beautiful Synnylvsfjord. Near the village, the gorgeous Hellesylt Waterfall plunges over the granite face of the fjord, cascading in thousands of feet of rainbows and foam. This majestic area, along with its breathtaking glaciers and mountain lakes, inspired Henrik Ibsen’s drama Brand. The town is a starting point for trips to Geiranger, considered Norway’s most beautiful fjord.

    Experience an unforgettable scenic journey through farmlands, valleys, mountains and lakes during this overland tour and hike.

    Norwegians measure mountain hikes in hours and not in kilometres. Trails climbing up and down, winding in and around, in order to avoid natural obstacles of rock and rivers, make linear measurements altogether irrelevant. The path from Vollset to Flo, which you will follow on this hiking tour, used to be one of the main throughfares between Sunnmøre and the Nordfjord and the Eastern districts from medieval time onwards, and was important for the exchange of goods between the inland and coastal communities.

    Departing the pier, you will be transferred by coach from Hellesylt to Vollseter where you will leave your coach behind and begin your exploration on foot. Along the path you will pass three 'seters' (Summer farms). Though the seter huts are still standing, the summer farming in the old way has mostly become history. Next, you'll proceed past several mountain lakes and reach the highest point on the trail at 1800 ft. above sea level. As you walk along, try to imagine that centuries ago this was the 'highway' where literally, caravans of cattle and horses were herded along.

    As you come upon Strynsvatnet lake below you, the first sighting is truly spectacular. Surrounded by mighty mountains like Skåla and Lofjellet, the view is magnificent. From here, you will descend along the path to Flo, a delightful community with many orchards. Re-joining your coach, you will then proceed along Stryn Lake, known for its turquoise color, to Hotel Videseter; where a well-deserved lunch will be served.

    Following lunch, continue along the New Strynefjell Road and then follow the hairpin road to the summit of Mount Dalsnibba. From this amazing location you will be treated to a spectacular view of Geirangerfjord far below and the magnificent mountain peaks.

    A brief photostop at the Flydal gorge will be made before returning to the pier in Geiranger where your excursion concludes.

    Please note: This challenging hiking tour will cover approximately 4 miles and involves extensive walking over difficult and uneven surfaces and thus, is only recommended for guests in very good physical condition.

It is recommended that guests dress in layers, bring a wind and water-proof jacket and wear sturdy, comfortable hiking boots.
