Description

Though the hike to Bakkanosi is long, the terrain is relatively kind. The reward for making the climb to the top is a stunning view of the Sognefjord and of the UNESCO World Heritage site at Nærøyfjord. The view from the 1300-meter summit looking straight down to the Nærøyfjord is literally breathtaking.

Use the car park at Jordalen and set off through Slettedalen towards Slettedalstjørni. Continue from here to the summit at Bakkanosi.

Since the trail is not marked it is recommended that only experienced hikers attempt this journey and only when the weather permits you to do so.

Climb: 580 - 1398 meter
Distance: 20 km - 8 hour return trip
Season: July - September
Level of difficulty: Red (demanding)
Starting Point: Jordalen
Map referance: Nærøyfjorden 1.50 000 and the book ‘Opptur in Hordaland
Comments: The trail for this hike is not marked. A map of the area and a compass are therefore necessary.
