For once, we wanted to stay in a hotel and have a safe and nice place to come back to after long day’s trip in the mountains. We found Sagafjord Hotel in Sæbø, in the middle of the Sunnmøre Alps.
Arriving in Sæbø, we were stunned by the peaks rising from the fjord, ending in a beautiful and pointy pattern towards the sky. The hotel had panoramic views of famous mountains such as Slogen and Saksa across the beautiful fjord Hjørundfjorden. If you visit, be ready to make your adventure planning with a live preview of the peaks and climbs.
The spirited hotel director, Sigmund, welcomed us while jokingly cursing us for bringing the rain from Bergen. We ensured that we would get rid of it within a couple days and set about proving that we could find some nice views in the rain and fog too. The peak of that day was Sæbøtua, just a small one-hour hike from the hotel. The views from the top showed us small glimpses of what was awaiting in the upcoming days.
