In summers past cattle were taken to roam freely on high mountain pasturesthis meant it was a long journey to get the milk back down to the farms by the fjord. Up in the mountains, small houses were built for the cowherds. Here it was the women who ruled and when you go back down again, send a thought to the girls who took the same trip with a heavy load of milk on their shoulders.

On the hike up there is a magnificent view of the Hjørundfjorden's fjord arms and pointed mountains. You will visit two  farms and  with your spirits lifted from the hike enjoy a coffee break on the farm, surrounded by rugged peaks.
