Dalsnuten Hike

If you’ve seen my Kjergbolten hiking post, then you know I have love-hate relationship with the mountains. And guess what?! Here I am again, made a split-second decision (again) to hike, this time to Dalsnuten in Sandness, Norway. I never heard about the place before and didn’t know what to expect.

This time invitation came from my dorm mates, who apparently spotted the hills out of our dorm’s windows and decided to go there. It still amazed me how things workย like that in here. Just point a hill, check the weather, and off you go!

So that morning, the ten of us took the bus from Stavanger to Sandness. It’s still in the same area so if you have a Stavanger’s bus card, you’re good to go, with no extra cost. It doesn’t take too long maybe around 45 minutes to reach the bottom of the hill. And the hike itself is not bad and took around an hour to reach the top. It’s an easy hike, I got my time, stopping all the time and taking pictures.

There are two beautiful lakes and the view is just like everywhere else in Norway, beautiful! From top of the hill we can see the university area and of course our lovely bright red boxes dorm. We went a little bit further away from the crowd, to a rock on the edge of the cliff, facing the fjord. Some of us lying on the rock, soaking up the sun, some just sat there, ate lunch. My favorite moment is when all of us just stayed quiet and admiring the amazing view. It was such a beautiful and relaxing hike with people from around the world. I love it so much! Here’s some snaps from the hike!
