Are you looking for a spectacular experience off the beaten track in a World Heritage Site? This unique product combines e-biking from the fjord and hiking to Breiskrednosi mountain, which offers an airy view of the UNESCO-listed Nærøyfjord.

The guide will meet you at Myrkdalen Hotel and we will drive to Gudvangen, innermost in the Nærøy Fjord. From Gudvangen we will continue on a fjord cruise on the narrow and beautiful fjord which is featured on the UNESCO’s World Heritage List. After 40 minutes we will stop at the roadless village Dyrdal. Here we gear up with e-bikes and helmets and start biking slowly up the gravel road towards the mountain farms at Hjølmo.

At the houses on the terrace above the fjord, our local guide will tell you how life was in this charming village, which in the olden days had over 100 permanent inhabitants, a post office and hospital.

After 6 km and approximately 500 vertical metres on the bike, we will stop at the mountain farms at Hjølmo. Here we will leave our bikes behind and continue on foot. The first 2,5 km of the hike to the mountain farms at Vassete is in relatively flat terrain. Here we will have a proper break and get our energy levels up before we continue up the steep hill towards the top. The last kilometre is in flat terrain before we walk up to Breiskrednosi mountain, which offers an airy view of the UNESCO-listed Nærøyfjord. It's hard to describe the stunning view at the top. You have to experience it yourself!

We will return the same way and bike slowly down the gravel road to Dyrdal. On hot summer days the fjord offers a refreshing swim before we take the boat back to Gudvangen and drive to Myrkdalen Hotel.
