Description A full-day coach excursion to discover Dalsnibba mountain, the ideal destination to admire one of the most characteristic landscapes in the whole of Norway. As we come across crystal clear lakes and breathtaking waterfalls, water - the protagonist of age-old legends - becomes the main feature of this trip to discover a unique environment and viewpoints that will remain forever etched in our memories.

What we will see
  • Hornindal, the deepest lake in Europe
  • Scenic mountain valleys
  • Geirangerfjord with the “Seven Sisters” and “Pretender” waterfalls
  • Enchanting Flydalsjuvet panoramic point
  • Dalsnibba peak, the ideal place to take in unique views
  • Djupvatn and Stryn lakes with unique colours


What we will do
  • We travel by coach from the jetty of the idyllic Nordfjordeid village and head inland and up the hills surrounding the fjord.
  • We reach the Hornindal lake, the deepest in Europe with a depth of 514 metres. It is impossible not to remain speechless in front of its crystal-clear waters teeming with fish, particularly trout.
  • Proceeding towards Hellesylt, we drive through a scenic mountain valley leading to a small town from where the ferries depart.
  • We immerse ourselves in the fairy-tale atmosphere of the Geirangerfjord, at times described as the most beautiful fjord in the world and, along the way, we admire the waterfalls of the “Seven Sisters” and the “Pretender”: natural wonders with an irresistible charm whose beauty inspired countless legends.
  • After arriving in Geiranger, we start climbing again with a short stop for photos at the famous Flydalsjuvet viewpoint.
  • The itinerary continues towards the Dyupvasshytta restaurant where we enjoy a delicious lunch.
  • On full stomachs, we get ready to continue the last 5 km of the climb towards Dalsnibba. At 1,500 metres above sea level, we can take advantage of spectacular panoramic views over the surrounding mountains and glaciers with the Geirangerfjord down below.
  • On the way back, we admire the Djupvatn lake with its unique colours and drive through the numerous tunnels that keep the road to Stryn open even in winter.
  • Once at the Stryn lake, we follow a pleasant road along the coast. The village is the administrative centre of the region and is also known for Strynselva, the famous salmon river.
  • Before ending this fascinating adventure and returning to the jetty, we pass by the majestic Hornindal lake once again.
