Hiking to Breiskrednosi

The hike to Mt. Breiskrednosi is spectacular, but it is also demanding. Make sure to eat a good breakfast before getting on the bus to Rimstigen & Breiskrednosi in the morning and remember to bring packed lunch and water for the tour.

The bus takes you to the small village Bakka by the Nærøyfjord where the path starts. First, you will hike the steep path up to Rimstigen, over the course of 2,7 kilometres you ascent 725 metres. After a few hundred metres of easy terrain, you start the last big climb of the day up mt. Rimstigfjellet. From there you follow the undulating terrain along the mountain until you reach Mt. Breiskrednosi. Take a rest and enjoy the view to the fjord!

Instead of returning in the same direction, you continue downhill to the mountain farm Vassete and further to Hjølmo. From the mountain farm Hjølmo, you follow the gravel road all the way down to the fjord.

Fjord Cruise from Dyrdal

Dyrdal is an idyllic little fjord village, with no road connection, along the Nærøyfjord. Farming has taken place here for centuries, and at its peak more than 100 people lived here and had their own school and infirmary. The last farmer gave up farming in the 1970s, and now only one man lives here all year. Depending on the weather and how long you spent hiking, maybe it tempts with a refreshing swim in the fjord?

Make sure to be at the quay at 18:00, 15 minutes before the electric vessel arrives to bring you back to Flåm or Aurland.
