Hiking to Mount Saksa
This is one of our absolute favorite mountains in the area around Hjørundfjorden due several reasons. One of them is for sure the view from the top, you see all the way in to the end of Hjørundfjorden in one direction and out to Ålesund in the other. It´s also one of the summits in the area that have the best fjord panorama for sure.
We start our day in the small village Urke in the shoreline of Norangsfjorden, from where we are able to work our way up to the summit and get better, and better views during the day. The last part up to the top where earlier a bit scetchy with a lot of loose rocks, but last year a couple of sherpas from Nepal built a nice stairway with the existing rocks.
This is one of our favourite hikes in the region and the hike that gives you the most spectacular fjord view in the region.
