Description

Moderately demanding walking (no climbing or scrambling) ascent. Highly rewarding view from the summit towards Jotunheimen and Valdres.

Length: approx. 4 km one way
Duration: approx. 2 hrs up
Altitude difference: ca. 550 meters
Suitable for children: from 6-7 yrs.

Follow road 51 North from Beitostølen in the direction of Bygdin. After approx. 10 km, you will see a parking lot on the left side of the road, opposite the Lappish Camp. From there, follow the T-marked path for about 1 km. After passing through a reindeer fence, the route up to the summit of Bitihorn turns left and uphill. (The T-marked path continues straight ahead to Yksendalsbu). The route to Bitihorn is clearly marked and not very challenging. However, it does get a little steeper near the top. Enjoy the panoramic view towards Bygdin, Jotunheimen, and most of the northern region of Valdres.

Markings
Cairnes and red markings on stones.

Equipment
Standard clothing for high mountain walks: Solid hiking boots, wind- and waterproof outer layer, warm sweater, hat, mittens, daypack. No special equipment required.
