5. Mountain hikes and yoga in Nordfjord
In Oldedalen in beautiful Nordfjord, right beside the Briksdalsbreen glacier, lies Melkevoll bretun. It is surrounded by spectacular scenery: waterfalls, high mountains and glittering glaciers – the perfect starting point for an unforgettable trip with friends.
Kattanakken is situated near the campsite, 1,458 metres above sea level, and this is definitely a hike anyone who loves hiking will want to tick off their list. This is a lofty hike in places and is classified as black. From the top, you can see the whole Oldedalen valley and the Briksdalsbreen glacier, which is a great reward after the taxing hike up.
Melkevoll bretun is also a bouldering spot, where there are approximately 100 boulders to climb at the camp site, which should be enough for anyone who wants to have a go. There are also yoga classes at the campsite a couple of times a week, relaxing treatments, a sauna and ice swimming – perfect after a long day in the mountains!
The Briksdalsbreen glacier is situated around 50 minutes on foot from Melkevoll bretun. From an altitude of 1,200 metres, the glacier plunges down to the lush, narrow Briksdalen valley. You walk past Kleivafossen waterfall, one of the most photographed motives in Norway, on the way there!
