Stryn & Nordfjord
Enjoy breathtaking alpine skitouring scenary with glacier, fjords and snow coated mountains – perfect for alpine skitouring, trekking, climbing winter and summer!
In winter and early summer the small local skilifts and the many mountain roads gives easy access into the mountains. The steepest cable car in the world – the Loen Skylift brings you directly to Mt.Hoven straight from the fjord! From April to July Stryn provides the best late season snow (in the world?) around the Stryn Summerski chairlift. We start the skitouring from the valley or from one of the mountain roads. If you would like to combine skiing with other activities like surfing, trailbiking, spa, fishing, climbing, you will have plenty of alternatives in Nordfjord – the All In One Fjord destination!
In summer we offer climbing, trekking and glacierhikes from our base in Stryn. Try one of the sport climbing crags nearby or book a mountainguide for one of the traverses or ridges.
Climate and best season
The snow conditions around Stryn is mostly very good above 3-400 mas, and near to 1000 mas it is normally several meters of snow! Its a reason why Jostedalsbreen Glacier is the biggest glacier at the European continent and covers a large part of this municipality.
Skiing all the way down to the fjord is often possible from midle of January to end of March. The inner part of Nordfjord has lots of mountain roads and small ski resorts which provides easy access to the snow even in seasons with less snow. This makes Stryn to be one of the safest spots for your skiing holiday. And dont forget! – Stryn offers some of the best late season snow in the world!
The region is a mecca for tourists and travelers in summer season. There are campsites, cabins, hotels, guest houses, shopping, bath & spa and much more. If you need help finding accommodation, we would love to help you! Almost all villages in Nordfjord have larger grocery stores, and offers many restaurant opportunities. In the mountains you must bring your own lunch unless otherwise has been arranged with your guide.
