The Hjørundfjord

The Hjørundfjord is the “neighbour-fjord” to the more famous Geirangerfjord. The inner part of the 35 kilometre long Hjørundfjord is surrounded by steep mountains, watefalls and glaciers.

At the innermost part of the fjord you find the villages Sæbø and Øye. Øye with it´s mythical Hotel Union Øye. Maybe you will meet beautiful Linda, the ghost that lives in the hotel, in the “Blue Room”. A popular hike from Øye is to Mt. Slogen, a challenging hike with a fantastic view down to the Hjørundfjord.
