Description

Slogen is arguably the finest summit in the Sunnmøre Alps and the view is impressive! From the fjord a triangular pyramid-like feature rises straight up. Patchellhytta cabin lies at the foot of Slogen and is popular day tour objective in itself, but it is also a good starting point for ascents of Slogen, as well as Brekketind (5,833 ft) and Smørskredstind (5,351 ft). There are several alternative routes to Patchellhytta, and onwards to Slogen, either from Øye, Engeset or Urke.

Season Jun - Sept

Duration From Øye: 4-5 hours, Urke: 5 hours and Patchellhytta: 2-3 hours.  Distance and total height gain: From Øye: 3 km. 4,921 ft. From Patchellhytta: 3 km. 2,460 ft. From Urke: 3,937 ft. 8 km.

Access Bus/car to Øye or Stranda/Engeset. www.fjord1.no. Hjørundfjord Cruise , see p. 31.

Worth noting You are strongly advised not to use the snow fields on the way down unless you have an ice axe and know how to brake with it. This practice leads to several serious accidents every year.
