Guided hike to Bakkanosi - above Nærøyfjorden

The hike to Bakkanosi mountain is spectacular, which offers amazing views of the narrow and beautiful Nærøyfjord, featured on the UNESCO’s World Heritage List!

The hike to Bakkanosi starts from Jordalen valley after a 40 minute drive from Myrkdalen Hotel. First we will walk the tractor road to the charming mountain farms in Slettedalen valley. From the mountain farms we'll walk up the u-shaped valley on the left side of a little river. By the Slettedalstjørni tarn, the track eases off towards the top of Bakkanosi mountain. It's hard to describe the stunning and airy view of the Nærøyfjord at the top. You have to experience it yourself!

We will return the same way we came up. The length of the hike is approximately 20 km in total.
