Hiking to Mount Saksa
This is one of our absolute favorite mountains in the area around Hjørundfjorden for several reasons. One of them is the view from the top, where you can see all the way to the end of Hjørundfjorden in one direction and out to Ålesund in the other.
We start our day in the small village Urke on the shoreline of Norangsfjorden. As we work our way up to the summit, the scenery becomes more stunning at every turn of the trail. The last part up to the top was recently improved by sherpas from Nepal, creating a nice stairway with the existing rocks.
This is one of our favourite hikes in the region and by far the the most spectacular fjord view in the region.
Travel to Urke
This trip starts in Urke, midway through Hjørundfjorden. The easiest way to get there is by car. If you need a shuttle from your hotel, contact us and we will be glad to help.
