Odnes | Nærøyfjord

Hiking and storytelling

Arriving by kayak at Odnes, we set up camp and enjoy lunch, stretch our legs and take in the serene surroundings with a refreshing drink. We continue hiking along parts of the old Royal post route, which was used during the winter from the mid-1600s to transport mail to Styvi when the fjord had partially frozen. From there the farmers used to row the mail to Lærdalsøyri. In 1858, steamboats took over the post route. Today the road is an easy walk of approx. 5 km one way from Styvi to Bleiklindi.
