Join a Great FULL DAY HIKE to Mount OKSEN

Fjord hikes in Norway are a popular activity nearly all year round.
On this full day Fjord hiking tour up Mt Oksen we will take you off the beaten track, into some of the most scenic mountains in Hardangerfjord  has to offer. With its to 1241m Mt. Oksen  offers a spectacular view over four Fjords from the top.

The Mt. Oksen trail begins in Tjoflot and starts by winding its way up and through some beautiful native forest.
After a fairly challenging start and a demanding climb, the trail opens out above the tree line. There you start to get a glimpse of the spectacular views coming ahead.

The higher you go the more rewarding the view.

Reaching the top at 1241m you are rewarded with 360 degree views of Samlafjorden, Sørfjorden, Eidfjorden and Granvinsfjorden, as well as panoramic views on the mountain ridge surrounding Voss and Norways’s third largest glacier Folgefonna.

Please note that Mt Oksen is a demanding hike that requires a good level of fitness and appropriate clothing and footwear must be worn.

The trail climbs straight up 990m from the car park.
There are no dangerous passages along the trail but there are two particularly steep parts between 400m and 600ml and towards the top again at 800m. One of the best Fjord hikes in Norway when you are in the area of Hardangerfjord, off the beaten track!

– Thermal underwear if cold
– Change of clothes (for after the rafting tour)
– Suncream

Weather limitations: when strorm is in forecast we might need to reschedule.

The rivers change from May to October.
High water is usually from June to mid July during the snow melting season. For the real whitewater enthusiast, this would be an exciting time to book on our Whitewater Rafting tour as the rapids are at their biggest.
 
That being said, the amazing scenery along the Raundal Canyon makes it a fantastic experience all summer long. The Raundal River is not dam controlled and water levels vary all season long, making it an excellent choice at any time during the season

No, you don’t. Most of our guests are first-timers and our trips, equipment, and briefings are designed to put beginners at ease. Our experienced guides will provide a safety orientation before you get on the water and coach you the whole way through the rapids. No previous whitewater experience is necessary.

We recommend that all of our rafters be in good physical health.

If you have a medical issue but you still want to go rafting, we always recommend you check with your doctor first.

Tip is not a regular thing in Norway as it’s in USA. Your guide works hard to ensure that you have a fun, yet safe rafting adventure and always committed to the Outdoor Norway high standard guided tour.

Tip is widely accepted as the industry norm; and tipping is always appreciated but never expected. It stays totally at your own discretion.

We start rafting as soon as the ice is off the river, and up until the snow falls! This is usually between the start of May to the end of October. It’s all depending on Mother Nature!
