Description

Length: ca. 3.5 km one way
Duration: ca. 1.5–2 hrs. up
Altitude difference: ca. 540 meters
Suitable for children: from 4-5 yrs.

Follow road 51 to Heggenes and exit towards Yddin. (Toll road, NOK 50 in 2011). Continue past Yddin Fjellstogo and follow the road that ends up by Storeskag. Park your car approx. 100m before the end of the road. The standard of the road can vary early in the season due to snow melting.
The route to Skaget starts behind the Storeskag-cabin. After a while you will reach a path crossing, and we recommend choosing the main route to the right. It will take you up on the East shoulder before it turns westwards towards the top. An alternative route is to follow the path straight ahead and uphill. The routes can be combined to make a nice round trip, however on your way back down, the main route is the easiest to follow. We only recommend this hike in clear weather.
