Where is..

The district is called Fjelli and is a part of the municipality of Stryn.

The district also is  called
źNordsida╗ (źNorth Side╗), as it is located on the north side of the Nordfjord. The district also includes the districts Blakset and
Randabygda/Hopland.

In earlier times this district belonged to the churches at the other side of the fjord.  There was no road connection, so people had to cross the fjord in open boats.  That could be quite a challenge when the weather was rough.  No matter if it was funerals or infant baptism. Just imagine how it was walking down steep, may be slippery slopes carrying the infant to the fjord, putting out the rowing boat, and try to cross the fjord in strong wind with the waves going high around the boat.  From about 1936, motor boats came in use. that helped a lot. Though, the joy was big when we got our own church in the early 70's.

Tourism

You can find several attractions in this district. spectacular natural sceneries , cultural and historical places.

Farmers have build up cabins for hire. In peak seasons, they might be occupied, but if you have luck, you may find some that is vacant.

In 2005, a new road was opened between Randabygda/Hopland and Hennebygda, farthest to the west of this district.  This road was the last piece of the road that was planned to go along the fjord from Faleide in the east to Nordfjordeid in the west.  As it took about 90 years from plans to the completion date. and since they made the road "step by step",  the different parts of the road got unequal road numbers. But it is most known by the  name  "Route 613"   everyday talk
