Leave your transportation for a hike that follows the trail for approximately 1½ miles to Mount Keipen.
At the top, enjoy a cup of hot coffee and a snack of lefse (Norwegian soft flatbread) with cured mea. Take in the spectacular views and scenery below before your guide leads you back down the mountain for your transfer back to the pier.
