You are guaranteed magnificent views and Instagram friendly snapshots on our selected summit trip!


Majestic, magical and challenging – these are some of the words often used about Lihesten, a landmark and unifying symbol for Hyllestad. This mountain was an important landmark already in the Viking Age, and Olav Kyrre sheltered beneath it and considered founding a town there on the Lifjord. There are many walks you can do and you can spend lots of time on this distinctive mountain massif in Hyllestad.


Climb the Norwegian horse – the mountain that ascends almost straight up from the sea. At 481 metres and visible from 100 km out to sea, Alden is one of the most distinctive seamarks in Western Norway. You can enjoy fantastic views in all directions from the summit!

Heileberget (Fløgen)

Heileberget is a popular summit trip with fantastic views of the Dalsfjord and the islands to the west. There is a waymarked walking trail from the car park at Otterstein (the Askvoll side of the Dalsfjordbrua bridge). The hike up is relatively demanding, but involves no climbing. Enjoy beautiful views from an altitude of 761 metres above sea level.


Pollatinden is the second highest mountain in Solund and is referred to as the Queen of the archipelago. Whether this name derives from the fact that it is the second highest mountain in the municipality or that Queen Sonja has climbed it on numerous occasions, is not known.

It towers 541 metres above sea level, and offers commanding views of the westernmost islands in Norway.

Lundeskaret is much more than a run-of-the-mill mountain hike and is probably the closest you can get to a true mountain classic in Jølster. The trail winds its way up the narrow and wild gorge innermost in the Kjøsnesfjord. The route up Lundeskaret is Norway's steepest DNT-marked hiking trail, so you need to be in good physical shape and have strong legs to do this hike.

Veten (Måløy)

Be blown away by beautiful views 613 metres above sea level. Veten is the highest point in Vågsøy, and, together with Brurahornet, forms the backdrop to the town Måløy. Start the walk at Måløy stadium. You can either park at the stadium or follow the road up to the water works below Skramsvatnet lake.

Enjoy views over large parts of Vågsøy and Stadhavet sea from the top.


There are countless walks and hikes in the mighty mountains in Jølster, and a trip up Kleivafjellet mountain offers memories you can cherish for a lifetime. The route has steep sections towards the top. Stopping at the Vikastøylane farm, to take some photos and catch your breath, is an absolute must. It takes 30 to 60 minutes to walk up to the farms, and then another 60–90 minutes to reach the top.
