Once you get back to the surface, there’s a lake with white marble “jetties”. Brave hikers can take a swim! If you’re feeling especially energetic, you can hike further over the mountain ridge at 832 m (2,729 ft)—as the mountains behind Troll’s Church are very distinctive with jagged points and spires—and make a loop back to the cave.

  • After breakfast, take off on a road trip to the Atlantic Road. The Atlantic Road’s stretch between Bud and Kristiansund is one continuous experience packed with coastal scenery, culture, and history. The road that crosses this “infamous stretch of the ocean” was hailed as the world’s best road trip by the British newspaper The Guardian. In 2006. The 8.3 km (5 miles) road, with 8 bridges of a total length of 891 meters, was built on several small islands and skerries and is spanned by eight bridges and several landfills. You will hike to Sjurvarden at 667 m (2,188 ft), a mountain that stretches out to the sea, giving a powerful view of Hustadvika, the Atlantic Ocean, and the coastal landscape from Sunnmøre and Smøla on Nordmøre. If it happens to rain, you will take an excursion to the old fishing village of Bud and walk along the coastal hiking trail.

I loved every minute of this retreat, me and my mum were not as fit as the rest of the group and pillie stayed with us the whole time as slow as we were. Everything was well organized (according to the weather) pillie is an amazing person and the retreat for both me and my mother was an unforgettable experience!

Once in a life time experience, made great new memories and accomplished so many great hikes with wonderful people. Definitely recommend pille’s retreat, she’s the most authentic instructor.
