Nice hiking, the path is easy from Skålevik. Without rush we needed 2 hours. There are few ways to reach the top. Very popular for people from Bergen.

An awesome little mountain for your own run training, just keeping fit, or for a family excursion w/ picnic at the top. The views are stunning, where you can see the gateway to the open sea, and Bergen with Vidden the other way, and the gateway to the fjords. THE BEST & BEAUTIFULLEST city in the world. 🥰
Pretty easy , but beautiful hike if the weather is good!
