Description

Tjuatoten (1098m)

Tjuatoten is a mountain peak towering over Dragsvik and Balestrand. A hiking trail goes up the mountainside from Dragsvik to the top of Tjuatoten. This is a demanding hike. At the top you have fantastic views over the Sognefjord, including out towards Stølsheimen and in towards Fjærland and Leikanger.

Start:
Turn off the main road at Dragsvik in the direction of the housing area and Haukaas enamel workshop. The starting point of the trail is signposted and there is a parking area beside the road.

The first 400m of the trail follows the forest track. The rest of the trail goes through forest and mountain terrain. The trail passes the electricity pylons which are visible from Balestrand where you will get a wonderful view down to Balestrand and over Esefjord. The trail continues winding its way up, becoming steeper towards the top. When you reach the top you are rewarded with exceptional views over Sognefjord and the surrounding mountains. You will also see an old suncross on the ground.

This is a demanding hike and takes approx 7 hours.

Good advice:
Get a hiking map from the tourist office.
Be sure to take plenty of water as there is no drinking water on this route.

Getting there:
From Balestrand you can get to Dragsvik by car, bus or boat. (You can walk, though this will add an extra 9 km each way to the hike).

To reach Balestrand you can take the express bus from Oslo, Trondheim or Bergen, or take the express boat from Bergen. If you come by car from Oslo take the E16 and route 55. From Bergen or Trondheim take the E39 and route 55.
