As the name says, Hornneset juts out into the sea, out into crystal clear water and chalk white sand and out towards Meløy’s beautiful island world. Out here you will experience sandy beaches, grasslands, lightning grabs, rocky cliffs, hills and idyllic forest terrain.

Hike Description

From Hornneset you have a fantastic view. The trip is easy going and suitable for most people. If you want a slightly bigger challenge and see it all a bit more from above, you can take a detour up to Horntinden. Hornneset has been voted Meløy’s most attractive hiking area, and for good reason.

In the center of Reipå, take the exit to Fore and drive/walk/cycle past the church and continue straight to the end of the road and the car park at Fore. From here, there are several paths that take you to the tour’s main destination – the beaches and rocky cliffs out to sea. You can find the tellur code at the tourist box in the bay furthest to the north.

The “Innerveien” tour – turn right at the first intersection and follow the path towards the sea. The walk “Midtre vei” – follow the path straight ahead, a slightly faster walk than the “Innerveien”. The “Fjæraveien” trip – follow the path and head down towards the sea at the first crossing and follow the mountains out to the beautiful beaches. Feel free to choose one trip out and the other back, but feel free to spend some time out on the headland to calm down and explore the many coves.
