The Summer Ski Centre is one of the most popular
attractions in Stryn.
Whether you like alpine, telemark, snowboard, freestyle or cross
country skiing: at Stryn Summer Ski Centre you can enjoy the unique

Stryn Summer Ski Centre is situated
by "Gamle Strynefjellsvegen", the old road over Stryn
Mountain, 32 kilometres east of Strynsvatn Camping.
It was the hottest summer in 21
years when we visit Stryn
and one of our most remarkable day trips was to the mountain ski
resort of Stryn where, in the last week of July, girls where skiing
The snow was still metres thick and not melting,
despite the sweltering sunshine.
And when a coach took us on a white-knuckle ride,
4,500 feet up to the
top of Mount Dalsnibba - the highest point on Norway's roads -
was not a breath of wind at the top.

Like gods in the clouds, we looked down on
our cruise ship anchored in
the distance in Geiranger Fjord.
THE 67-mile fjord is the most beautiful in Norway
and attracts more
than 120 cruise ships from all over the world every summer.
Around every corner, spectacular waterfalls with
names like The Bridal Veil
and The Seven Ladies tumbled into the fjord.
THE OLD STRYNEFJELL ROAD past stone
walls and guard stones
The high mountains glacial might, wrote the
great Norwegian poet Bjørnstjerne Bjørnson in
a guest book in Grotli following a visit in 1896.
The majestic Strynefjell pass has inspired poets and
artists up through the ages. Here amid long plateaus, mountain
peaks and steep ravines, they have found quiet or inspiration.
A narrow road twists at one with nature through
the Strynefjell pass, a bit of Norwegian road-building history,
which was the only road for vehicular traffic between Skjåk
and Stryn for most of the previous century. In 1997 the road
was designated a tourist route, and was upgraded to a National
tourist route in 2003.
