Gjegnen - A full-day Adventure | Nordfjord Aktiv
From 0 to1670 masl, and back - in an coastal area with alpine terrain and high peaks.
The day starts early in a boat on the Nordfjord fjord and disembark on a remote and isolated farm. We hike uphill first through the forest, before it opens up, we get a good view, and suddenly we're high up in a wild and barren terrain with glaciers, rocks and crystal blue mountain lakes. We rope up, hike across the glacier, and continue to "the gallery" - a shelf on top of a 1200 meter tall rock face with an amazing view. From there we head straight for the top of Gjegnen, 1670 masl. The view is spectacular! From the ocean to the west, to sharp peaks in Sunnmøre and impressive mountain massifs in Nordfjord and Sogn. We make the hike a round-trip, so we go down a different way. We end up on another isolated farm where we're picked up by boat, and transported back to the starting point.
As mentioned we scale 1670 vertical meters - so it's a serious hike in a challenging area. This require stamina and strenght and you need to be in very good shape to participate on this trip. We're outside for 12-14 hours in challenging terrain in changing weather and temperatures.
