B. Blæja (1420 masl) and return the same way. (Difficulty: Medium)

At Viddal MS Slogen waits for you with a heated hot tub on deck, and maybe you'll be tempted to take a swim in the fjord? This day, there will be served a barbeque meal on board, and we will head towards the village Sæbø for the night. 
At Sæbø there is a local hotel, which you might want to visit for the Saturday night?
 

Sunday, if there is still more power in your legs, you can order an Add-On tour to the summit

A: Keipen (960 masl, Difficulty; Medium). From  Holen, we walk up through the woods, and we normally have to carry our skis here. Soon we'll enter open area at Årskogstøylen, and we can see down to the valley. We will then turn towards east, and start the climb to the top from behind. When entering the summit, we will see the fjord and all the peaks surrounding Hjørundfjord. MAP

B: Skårasalen (1542 masl, Difficulty Medium - Hard) Normally, we can drive to the Kvistadsetra, at about 500 masl, so that shorten our walk quite a bit. But occationally, there are snowy roads due to avalances, so the road is closed for cars. The trip itself, is one of the most popular skiing destinations in the Hjørundfjord area, and get lots of visitors each year. From the top you will see the fjord, and all the way to Ålesund. If the weather and snowconditions allows, we can ski down to the beautiful small village, Skår, which we passed on our trip to Viddal on Saturday. MAP

At the end of the day there will be a bus taking you to the airport of Ørsta/Volda Hovden.  So make sure when booking, to book return ticket from Ørsta/Volda. Optional, the boat can bring you to Ålesund Sunday morning ,if you are not joining the Sunday ski-tour
