If you're passing Sandane - on the way to somewhere and thinking about stretching your legs, then a hike up to Bolberg can be a good choice. The hike is short, and 99% of it runs along a forest road. The reward is a nice view towards a section of the Nordfjord.
Bolberg (Norge 1:50,000: 337m, Økonomisk Kartverk: -, UTM 32 V 350323 6858436) has a primary factor of 139m towards the higher parent mountain Haugsvarden (862m). The defining saddle (approx. UTM 32 V 351164 6858090) is found at Føleide. Ref. Økonomisk Kartverk (5m contours), the saddle is within the range 195-200m, interpolated to 198m.
