Description

Start: Åsen
Map (turkart): Sogndal- Leikanger

Turn off the RV 5 road at Sogndal Skysstasjon terminal and follow the Dalavegen road to Lauvhaug in the Sogndalsdalen valley (approx. 4 km), then take a right in the direction of Eggum. Continue for approx. 500 m, then turn off to the left onto the gravel road that becomes the Åsavegen toll road. Parking available at the end of the road.

The path starts at the perimeter of the summer pasture farm of Åsen, and you begin by walking through woodland before the terrain opens up. The path climbs gently until you reach a point from which you have a view of the Halsavatnet lake to the north. At the summit you can enjoy views of the Lustrafjord, Hafslo and large parts of Sogndal municipality. To the north-east you can see the Hurrungane mountains, part of the Jotunheimen mountain range.
