On this 4 hour hike you will reach the iconic viewpoint Lievarden, according to us one of the best spots to overlook the fjord around here. During the hike up towards the top of Lievarden we overlook Storfjorden which ends up in Geirangerfjorden and the towering snow covered mountains around us.
We meet up at our guide office where you get kitted up with snowshoes and poles that you need for the trip. After that we take a short drive up to the starting point of this trip. On this trip we are likely to see some wildlife like rabbits, deers and grouses which are often hiding out around here.
Our snowshoes will give us the feeling of floating on the snow and gives us a great stability to conquer the snow filled mountains around Stranda. They also works really good on icy snow and gives us a great grip on hard conditions.
When we reach the top of Lievarden the reward will be a truly unique and spectacular view over the fjord, Stranda and the surrounding mountains. From here we can also see towards Jostedalsbreen, land Europe´s biggest glacier.
Here we take a brake for some lunch and to enjoy the views before we head back down again.
