Activities in Sandane
They say that Nordfjord is Norway at its finest, tallest, longest, mildest and harshest. Sandane is the perfect place to start, because it is at the center of so many great adventures.
If you travel north and out towards the coast, you will find Hoddevik. This is home to one of the best places to surf in Norway. People come here from all over the world – not only to surf, but also to climb Mt. Skåla. This mountain is over 6000 feet above sea level, and at the top is the Skåla tower and the Skålabu tourist cabin, both quite impressive feats of architecture.
Want to take it a little easier? If you still want to be on top of the world, Loen Skylift is just the thing. It starts down by the fjord in Loen, and takes you up to Mt. Hoven, over 3300 feet above sea level, where a panoramic view awaits you. It is quite breathtaking!
You decide for yourself how you want to get back down. Maybe this is just the start of an unforgettable hike?
