September 14th - 15th we will host our annual hiking weekend, with spectacular mountains with fjord views on the programme. Both hikes will be in the Jordalen region to mountains with stunning views over the UNESCO listed Nærøy fjord and valley.
BAKKANOSI - A MOUNTAIN WITH STUNNING FJORD VIEWS
The hike to Bakkanosi starts from the old school in Jordalen. Walk the tractor road to the mountain farms in Slettedalen and follow the sheep tracks on the left side of the river. Walk up to the mountain tarns at Slettedalstjørni. The track eases off towards the top of Bakkanosi. It's hard to describe the stunning view at the top. You have to experience it yourself!
The total distance of the hike is 20 km and the elevation gain is approximately 850 metres. We estimate the hike to be 8 hours, plus breakes. The hike suits experienced hikers with good knees/feet for a long day in the mountains. We also recommend hiking poles on this trip.
Day: Saturday September 14th
Departuren Myrkdalen: 8 am
Length: Approximately 20 km return
Arrival Myrkdalen: 6 pm
Guided tour, bus Myrkdalen - Jordalen return is included.
HIKE TO JORDALSNUTEN MOUNTAIN
This is a unique mountain, which is centrally located in the Nærøydalen valley. This hike is shorter than Bakkanosi, but it's quite steep and is in relatively uneven terrain. This hike therefore suits experienced hikers.
