These are five nice excursions to world-class sights. All within a radius of 50 km from PilgrimsHotellet. You can reach all of them by car and in one case, by boat. But Gudfjelløya can also be seen from the road. There are very good possibilities for hiking one or several hours on good paths in every one of the areas.  

You can see it all in one weekend, but don't hesitate to add a couple more days so you can spend more time in each area.

Hällingsåfallet nature reserve

After a hike along the Hällingså river through the magic primal forest you reach the canyon. Here we wander along the 50 meter high cliffs until we catch a glimpse of the mighty waterfall. It's possible to park your car up near the waterfall but for those who have time and are able we recommend the walk upstream for a better experience of the unique reserve.
