Blegja in Askvoll is often called the queen of the mountains in Sunnfjord. Blegja rises 1304 meters above sea level and is the highest mountain in FjordKysten. The hike is challenging and the natureexperience is great. From the top you can enjoy the view of Fjord Norways steep mountains from above. You will see the amazing Fjord Norway nature consisting of fjords, mountains, glaciers, islands and the sea as far as the eye can reach. From Blegja you can see all the way to Jostedalsbreen and the 7 mountains surrounding Bergen 100 km in distance. A spectacular experience! This hike is for experienced hikers only. Parts of the trail is very steep and it is necessarry to climb the last bit towards the top. One shoul bring a map and compass. The trail is not sign marked all the way to the top. A guide is reccomended. How to get there? You can easily travel to Askvoll by ekspress boat from Bergen or Selje. For timetables By car from Bergen: Follow E39 from Bergen towards Forde.
