Skogadalsbøen - Fannaråken

Route info

Description

This route begins in the beautiful Skogadalsböen and then lead you in the forest for some kilometer before mountain terrain appears. In Gjertvassdalen you walk about 4 kilometer and passes then Gjertvatnet.

After another kilometer you pass Keisarpasset and also meet a snow field where it can be slippery. It's good to have an ice axe on this passage. The path goes uphill in more steep terrain and finally you'll see Fannaråken.

At the lodge you'll notice that this view is one of the greatest, you have Hurrungane in south and Memurubreen in northeast. When you walk home again use the same foot prints.

Hiking time

7 hours

Worth to know

Place a tent some kilometers after Skogadalsböen.

Fannaråken is the highest situated lodge in Norway. It used to be a weather station.
