Kyrkjenibba is one of the most prominent mountains in the immediate vicinity of Stryn. Some say the view from this summit is the best in the inner reaches of Nordfjord.
The most common route starts at the farm Skår/Garlid at an altitude of 300 metres. A short path up from Skår leads you onto a better path to the west of the river ravine in Skårdalen valley. It is usually a good idea to cross the river up by the old summer pasture farm (in late spring, you may have to go further up the valley). Continue up Stordalen, first along the floor of the valley, then turn up to the right to avoid avalanche-prone overhangs on the north-western slope at the bottom of the valley. Up on the shoulder, continue towards the summit well away from any overhanging snow. People who enjoy skiing steep sections can safely ski ‘the front’ on stable spring snow. Follow the RV 15 road towards Strynefjellet, turn off towards Flo approx. 10 km from the centre of Stryn, and turn left up onto and drive to the end of the first gravel road. You can also get to Kyrkjenibba from Kyrkjeeidestølen and up Fagerdalen valley.
