The starting point for this trip is Hunskår or Berleneset. The trail is signed posted with red T`s and stones. The trail is somewhat demanding and steep, but you are well rewarded with a panoramic view of high mountains, narrow fjords and small island as far as the eye can see.
This is a daytrip, so bring plenty of food and drinks, clothes and shoes according to the conditions.
Yuu will find water all along the way to the top. Starting from Hunskår it will take approximately 4 hours to the top. If you start from Berleneset, it will take a bit longer- but the trail is easier to hike and also suitable for the entire family.
