Description


This hike is usually undertaken as a return trip. You can start either in the village of Nusfjord or the smaller village of Nesland. We recommend you start in Nesland because you get charged to go into Nusfjord when you come by road but entry is free when you arrive via the footpath ;-)

The hike is fairly easy and is one of the few in the islands that has real waymarkers! This is a magnificent coastal path linking two small seaside villages. If you keep your eyes open and are lucky you may see seals in one of the many little creeks. In summer you can even swim in the clear deep water.

The village of Nusfjord, which is a UNESCO world heritage site, is very pretty although rather too touristy for our taste. You can hike here in pairs or as a family.
