Nearby experiences

With the high mountains that some places go straight to the sea, and as the only village in Vanylven with peaks over 1000 meters, Syvde is a uniqe place for sporty people. There are of course other activities for you to attend if this is not what you seek. The fact that Syvde is situated in the middle of Vanylven in short distances to the other villages, makes it easy for excursions in any direction. Below you can see some of the experiences you can easily reach from the Notaplassen pier/harbour.



Hakallegarden

The well known and very popular visiting farm is absolutely worth a visit when you are in the area. On Hakallegarden you can really experience life in the countryside and witness animals of many different kinds. Should you be tired of stroking alpakkas, riding horses or driving Gråtass (an old tractor), you can enjoy a good meal and a spectacular view in the cosy cafe on the farm. For more information see: Hakallegarden.no



Mountain and outdoor life

Fjelltoppar

Notaplassen hamn with surrounding peaks on any side is a good starting point for walking in the mountains. If you just want a quiet walk in the woods or in the valleys or you want to have a nice trip to the many high mountains in Vanylven, then Syvde is the right place. There are lots of marked routes of different difficulties, which make it possible for anyone to enjoy nature.

For the most vigorous ones it can be a challenge to climb all the five 1000 meters peaks in the Syvde mountains in one day: Høgenipa (1097 amsl), Myrkevasstinden (1131 amsl), Sandfjelltua (1002 amsl) , Blæja (1142 amsl) and Lisjeblæja (1032 amsl). But it is absolutely possible, and some people have done it. If you are a real competitor, you can try to compete in the uphillrace “Blåfelden rett opp” (Blåfelden straight up). With a length of 4,38 km and the highest point of 842 metres above sea level, you have to be in real good shape to complete. Can you beat Øyvind Hellberg Sundby`s record on 35.48 minutes?

Wild trout and salmon fishing in Syvde

If you are interested in fishing you can either fish in the salty fjord or in the roaring salmon river. Fishing in the fjord is free and can be done the whole year around. An alternative to fishing in the fjord is fishing in the salmon river in close proximity to the harbor/camping area. Fishing in the river requires a fishing license that can be bought by contacting Dagrun Molvik + 47 482 67 409, but in return you will get the opportunity to catch 2-6 kilograms big salmons. Fishing in the salmon river is only allowed from the 15th of June until the 31st of July.

A local tip is to follow the mountain road to "Ripsdalssætra" (marked with read at the aerial view below). From the harbor/camping area the trip takes approximately 10 minutes by car or 1 hour by foot. The road has a very high standard and you can easily drive there with a camper van. At "Ripsdalssætra" you will find a lake where you can fish mountain trout (sixe 100-400 gram) without a fishing license!
