Mountain trip to Sjurvarden
also called Stemshesten
Sjurvarden (Stemshesten) is the mountain that stretches out to the sea, giving a powerful view of Hustadvika, the Atlantic Ocean and the coastal landscape from Sunnmøre in the west and Smøla on Nordmøre in the north.
There are two paths to Stemhesten (667 m.o.h.), one is from Rødal in Farstad and takes about 1.5 hours on steep path. The other from the Scotts. From here there is a highway up to the shooting range, car park and about 1 hour walk to the top. The mountain range has several peaks: Sjurvarden (532 m.o.h.), Skotheimsvarden (548 m.o.h.) and Mælen (769 m.o.h.)
