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!
