Full description

There's something very tranquil about the panoramic views from a mountaintop. Imagine if you could enjoy these spectacular sceneries from the comfort of a hammock! Join Fjord Nature’s hiking trip for this exciting experience in the company of a local nature guide. Urkeeggaa is a name given by the locals of Saksa Turstiforening, who designed a roundtrip to the alps of Sunnmøre. The path is marked with signboards, sticks and red paint and has a mid-level of difficulty. On a typical tour day, participants are expected to arrive 15 minutes before departure time at the meeting point, the speedboat quay at Urke. The tour guide will meet you here, and at 11:00 am, all participants will be taken on a 5-minute minibus ride to the starting point of the hiking trip. Once all the hikers are ready, the group embarks on an exciting mountain hike through Urkeegga. The path is steep, with occasional airy spots and spectacular views of the surrounding mountains. After 15 minutes of hiking, you will pass the birch forests that open up to the fantastic views of Hjørundfjord. The ridges of Sunnmørsalpene are a good way of bettering your trekking abilities with somewhat steep edges, but nothing too dangerous. The uphill part of this mountain hike will cover most of the inland of mount Slogen. After around 2 hours of hiking, the group will reach Eglibu, where you can spend time gazing at the breathtaking views beneath. This is where all hikers can take a breather and chill in the hammocks that the group will hang up. After having lunch here and spending some time relaxing, the trip downhill begins either through the valley on the other side or back the same way. The total duration of this mountain hike is 6 hours and it is suitable for those above 10 years.
