Hike adventure – Base camp Stranda

Close to Stranda you have the well know Geiranger with several 100.000 visitors each summer. Instead of joining the crowds you can explore just as spectacular views with the numerous hike possibilities in Stranda. There are good hiking trails on all different levels, on this trip we have chosen our favourite trails. On this trip we combine hiking to summits and in valley, all rounded up with some great fjordviews.

During the whole trip we stay at Stranda Lodge, a classic Norwegian hut with grass roof and timber on the outside. The hut has 4 bedrooms and accommodates 8 people in total. This will be our basecamp during these 3 days and we will start all our day trips out from here.

We will pick you up in Ålesund on Thursday afternoon when you arrive and drive you 1,5 hour to the lodge. Here we will serve a light meal and get to know each other and make a plan for the weekend.

Day 1 – Blåhorna

Our first day of the trip we will start with a hike following the first part of the course of Stranda Fjord Trail Race. We hike up to Lievarden one of the most beautiful hikes around Stranda according to us. We follow the ridge further in towards Mønet and up to Mt Blåhorna, this will be our first summit for the weekend. From here we will have a good 360° panorama over the area. From here we aim towards heimste Blåhorna and the ridge that goes down towards Stranda. The ridge down the first part is a bit technical but just perfect for those who like a small dose of action.

When we arrive back at the lodge the guide will prepare the dinner for you while you can hang out in the couch.

Day 2 – Slogen

This day it´s time to conquer the queen of the Sunnmøre alps, Slogen. One of the most majestic mountains in the area with a breathtaking view. We start our hike from Liasætra, a old mountainfarm in the valley above Stranda. This trail will lead us all the way in to Patchellhut a old mountainhut originally built around 1920 by Charles Watson Patchell. He was one of the first brittish alpinist who where exploring the area. It takes us around 3 hours in to the hut and from here we have around 2,5 hour up to the summit.

Dinner at the lodge when we come back.

Day 3 – The old post road

The last day of the trip we will hike this classic trail close to Stranda. We have a 20 min drive to the startingpoint of the trip at Ljøen. From here we will follow this old post route up to Ljøbrekka further up to Styggedalsvatnet (Ugly valley lake), when we´re here there will be hard to understand the name. From here we hike up the ridge to Båsenibba which is a bit technical on some short stretches. From here you will overlook down towards Geirangerfjorden and really get the feeling of falling straight down into the fjord.

When we have finished today´s trip the guide will drive the whole group out to Ålesund and the finish of the trip.
