About the trip
An easy trip in flat terrain along Storevatnet Lake. We have laid wooden walkways along most of the trail so it is a lot easier to walk. Byrkjeneset is a lush and beautiful place. There is a fenced campsite where visitors can pitch their tents, and there is also an outdoor toilet. There is a beautiful beach with white stones.
Ryssdalshorn is a popular hiking destination from Gloppen. ‘A summit trip’ in the mountains with a great view. A steep climb, and many meters of elevation. However, this is still a manageable trip for most visitors. We have installed steel stairs in the steepest sections.
The mountains here offer many great ski trips. Plan your trip before you set off, and make sure you have checked the weather and avalanche forecasts.
