This is one of the most spectacular trips in the world, looking 860 meters down vertically on ships that pass in the shadow of the mountain. The cliff has quite an overhang in most places, surreal to it watch up close. The crack that divides...More

Trip from Hunskår is very steep, but the view improves as you ascend. Sherpas have improved the ascent with stone steps, both at the beginning and at the plateau at about 700 m.a.s.l. Necessary to bring plenty of food, water is available many places as...More

Highest seacliff in Europe (860 meters above sea level). Mystic mountain with stories about witches and viking kings. About seven hours, normal shape, to walk to the top and back. Fantastic wiew from the top.

It is a quite hard walk/climb to the top of this sea cliff at 860 meters above mean sea level. The walk starts at shore side where this enormous cliff raises straight up. 3-4 hours later in rocky, steap tracks, you are at the top....More

Amazing hiking trail fra Hunskår to the top, beautiful scenery and landscape. Tough but worth it, you'll get your reward once at the top! A must do in western Norway. Looking down from the top, 860m straight down to the fjord gives you butterflies!

Demanding but truly awarding hike to the highest seaside cliff in (Northern) Europe. Steep trail and will take the average person 7-9 hours but is worth it.

We passed Hornelen late one evening on a cruise ship travelling between Ålesund and Bergen and we were just awestruck by the immensely atmospheric views as we approached the 860 meter cliff face. We were really impressed by the drama, the spectacle and the context...More
