I ran the whole Sognefjord on the top of its mountains. To avoid the most touristic spots I stayed on the high routes and ran over the best mountain spots that overlook the fjord. The route was around 250 km long and 20.000 vertical meters and had to be completed in around 6 or 7 days, where every day became a new challenge:
Day 1: Skjolden – Gaupne, 37 km, 3.546 vertical meters
Day 2: Gaupne – Sogndal, 56 km, 3.200 vertical meters
Day 3: Sogndal – Balestrand, 52 km, 4.200 vertical meters
Day 4: Balestrand – Kyrkiebø, 53 km, 2.850 vertical meters
Day 5: Kyrkiebø – Leirvik, 60 km, 3.800 vertical meters
Day 6: Leirvik – Porten, 35 km, 2.001 vertical meters
Some time ago my mum was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. It was just because of an early intervention of the doctors that she is now back in a good shape and the disease is behind our shoulders. The Sognefjord mountains were part of the therapy. Enjoying some time in these mountains on Sundays with the whole family helped her to recover in a fast way.
