The scent of Nordic forest: spruce, juniper and an undertone of woody notes. Like a stack of freshly cut timber logs among juniper bushes. The landscape around Fitjar is rough and exposed; the wind shapes everything that grows. The juniper bushes are bright green, even in the dreary winter months. When passing by one, it’s impossible to resist picking a few juniper berries or a sprig of the outermost, soft tips of juniper needles, to chew on while hiking. Fjellheim makes you feel like you have been rolling in these bushes on your way over the mountain, like a true urban mountain man.
