With less than 1.000 inhabitants, Stordal is one of Norway's least populated municipalities. The rural area is beautifully situated by Storfjorden, and is surrounded by mountain peaks up to 1200-1300 metres. The mighty mountains have paths criss-crossing, and by the river you can experience picturesque farms and yards.
Large pastures, and a mild climate ensuring large crops of fruits and berries have provided the municipality with important industries. Stordal is renowned for its large furniture industry, and as many as 90 % of the municipality's industrial workers are employed in this line of trade.
The fiord municipality lies in the middle of the important tourist route between the inner parts of Sunnmøre, with Geiranger, and the outer coastal region with Ålesund, so a trip to Stordal is easy to combine with other excursions.
Some of the remarkable things you can visit when in Stordal are the unique Rose Church, Løsetstova, and the old fiord farm Ytste Skotet, situated up in the mountains. You can also enjoy fishing in waters and Stordalselva river, as well as go hiking at Overøye and Langsætra.
