Walking and hiking
Stordal has wide expanses of beautiful countryside offering opportunities for walking in summer and skiing in winter. In the mountains around Stordal you will find marked trails of varying lengths and demanding varying degrees of experience and fitness. The scenery is often dramatic, and full of variety, ranging from the steep hillsides of lower-lying parts of Stordal to the flat valley floors and high peaks of the region around Langsætrane, where Ålesund and Sunnmøre Touring Association have a tourist cabin "Fokhaugstova"

Stordal offers good and varied angling in river, mountain lake and fjord. If you'd like to try your luck at salmon fishing in the Stordal river, a fishing licence may be obtained from Stordal Camping or from individual landowners. In the many mountain lakes and small rivers, there are plenty of small trout to be caught.

Boat hire
Rowing boats may be hired for use on the fjord from the marina at Stordal Camping. A fishing trip on the Stordalsvika cove or a visit to one of the old, deserted fjordside or mountain farms around Stordal are particularly recommended.

The restored mountain farm of "Ytste-Skotet" lies high above the fjord directly above Dyrkorn, and may be reached by hired boat across the fjord. If you really want to experience what life was like here in the olden days, you can reserve an overnight bed in the farmhouse which dates from the 1870s. Phone 94 66 49 32
