Description

The walk follows the main road from Turtagrø as far as the second bend and then goes by a road up Helgedalen. High up in Helgedalen you pass the intake to a tunnel feeding water to the Fortun hydro-electric power station. The walk then swings steeply up to the Keiserpasset - Skogadalsbøen road fork. From here a good path twists and turns up to Fannaråken.

The view from Fannaråken is fantastic with the whole panorama of the West-Jotunheimen range. Many come to Fannaråken to experience the sunrise.

More about this area

Hiking in the Sognefjord area

The Sognefjord area is a paradise for hiking enthusiasts with a great variety of routes for both experienced and inexperienced adventurers.

The Sognefjord

Norway’s longest and deepest fjord extends inland to the national parks of Jotunheimen and Jostedalsbreen.

Urnes Stave Church

Urnes Stave Church in Luster, beside the Sognefjord, is the only stave church in the world to be included on UNESCO´s World Heritage List.

Winter by the Sognefjord

Wake up with a fjord view and go skiing in the mountains. Some of the best snow conditions in Norway are only minutes away from the Sognefjord.

Bicycling along the Sognefjord

- We came here to visit the UNESCO protected stave church at Urnes, and we combine it with biking along the fjord, says Lien Vermassen from Belgium.

Flåm

Beautiful Flåm is situated in the innermost part of the Aurlandsfjord, a tributary of the 204 kilometres long and up to 1,308 metres deep Sognefjord.
