After visiting the glass hut, go for a nice walk in the area. There will be two options, depending on weather conditions;
Along the shoreline to Hornneset, walking along the beach, with pebbles big as rocks, or follow the path of the green grassy slope above. Or, into Viktedalen, a nice valley above the small community.

Today's last destination is Reine. On the way stop at the village of Nusfjord. A fascinating place located in a narrow fjord, surrounded by eerie mountain sides. Most buildings are from the 1800's and have been preserved in their original form. With few residents, Nusfjord is more like a living museum under constant development. Take a short hike in Nusfjord before continuing to Reine.
