Top 5 in Askvoll
1. Værlandet and Bulandet
Visit the charming islands of Bulandet and Værlandet. The islands here are like a string of pearls, beautifully linked by six bridges and a 11 km road. These islands are a popular holiday destination for those who enjoy cycling, paddling, fishing or hiking. It is wonderful to go Island Hopping between the myriad of islands and bike from Værlandet to Bulandet.

Mount Alden rises straight out of the ocean, 481 m above sea level. This is one of the most significant sailing marks on the western coast of Norway and it is visible from more than a 100 km away. From the top you can enjoy a spectacular 360-degree view!
3. Helle knife factory
In the idyllic village Holmedal you’ll find the knife factory Helle Knivfabrikk. The factory produces high quality knives inspired by the wild mountains, fjords and open seas. If you are interested in history and culture, a visit to Helle knife factory is for sure well worth your time!

Blegja (1304 meters above sea level) is the highest mountain in the Fjord Coast region. You can see all the way to Jostedalsbreen and the 7 mountains surrounding Bergen from the top! The path is steep and demanding, but the pay-off is the fantastic view!
