Description


Leaving Reine you take the little boat that acts as a shuttle between Reine and the various villages at the end of the fjord. Once the boat drops you off at Kjerkfjord, which is at the end of the fjord but feels like the ends of the earth, you can start one of the wildest hikes in the islands.

Climb the hill that overlooks the village and when you reach the pass you have a magnificent view of Horseidvika Beach and the long narrow pass leading to it. Walk down the other side and if the mood takes you, you can walk as far as the beach (approximately 45 minutes). If not, turn right. You will find a little track that climbs up to a pass. At the pass take the left-hand slope to reach a second pass a little lower that overlooks Fageravatnet Lake.

Go round the left-hand side of the lake then climb down to the fjord until you reach the track leading to the "DNT" chalet. You will need to arrange to be picked up from here.
