Hornelen is Europe’s highest sea cliff, 860 precipitous metres above the sea. A hike to Hornelen is a truly spectacular experience! The path is steep and demanding, but the pay-off is the fantastic views on the way. This is a day hike suitable for those used to hiking in rough terrain. You can also enjoy views of Hornelen from the Gloføykje Millennium Site in Bremanger. 






2. Vetvika

Vetvika bay is untamed, beautiful and magical. The white sandy beach is surrounded by high mountains and clear blue water. You can reach the road-free beach by hiking over Steinfjellet or by boat.





3. Kalvåg

The charming village Kalvåg is located far out where the fjord meets the open sea. Kalvåg is one of Western Norway’s best-preserved fishing villages, which bustles with life in the summer. Here you’ll find an excellent gallery, a top-class restaurant, a spa and different types of accommodation.


4. Ålfoten and Hjortegarden

Ålfoten is a charming village located by the Ålfotfjord. Here the majestic red deer wander around in the forests - from the fjord, up along the rivers to the bare mountains and the mighty Ålfotbreen glacier. Have you ever seen a red deer at close quarters? In Ålfoten you’ll find the red deer farm Hjortegarden. Here you can feed the red deer! 


5. Vingen

Deep in Vingepollen, a narrow fjord arm surrounded by steep mountains, is Vingen - one of Northern Europe’s largest and most distinctive rock-carving sites. More than 2200 carvings have been discovered here, probably created by neolithic hunters (approximately 6000 years ago). The deer is the most popular motif, but there are also human figures and abstract symbols. In the summer you can join a guided tour to Vingen.
