Walk to the DNT cabin Fivla
A few hundred years ago this path was the main road between Jostedal and Lustrafjorden. Vigdalen was then a part of Dale and this path was the road to church. The path is called Bispevegen (The Bishop's road) after Bishop Johan Nordal Brun, who travelled this path when visiting Jostedalen. The year of passing and the first letters of his name are engraved in the mountain beneath Storhaug.
This is one of the "classic" Norwegian walks. Fannaråkhytta is the highest mountain hut in Norway ( 2068 m a.s.l.) and is manned during the summer.
Myrhønna, the most distinctive mountain in Jostedalen, is a landmark. For centuries the pyramid-shaped peak, buttressed by the Geisdalsfossen waterfall, has been a popular motif with painters and photographers. From the summit you can see both the Jotunheimen range and the Jostedalsbreen glacier.
From Nestesessen you can enjoy the best view of the Nigardsbreen glacier.
The route starts at the information board in Saurdal at the top of the Saurdal road and is marked with red and white markings and stone cairns. The route goes through mountain valleys, along water courses and to mountain tops.
First walk along route 5 towards Munkeggi (NB do not take the turn off to Hanevikelvi) until you come to a sign towards Hanevikstølen. From here take the old path into the Saurdal valley.
At the outlet of Målsnesvatnet lake the path continues over the bridge and towards Hanevikstølen, a summer farm which was in use until 1955.
From Hanevikstølen follow a path up over the mountain side and on towards the plateau between Storevarden and Bukkaberg. Here you can choose to take a detour up to Storevarden.
In Fagradalen you meet route 9 which takes you further to Spenane (1136m) and Raudmelen (972m) and from there on route 7 down to Balestrand.
Or you can of course choose to go back to Saurdal.
This is a varied walk from sea level to above the tree line with exceptionally fine views over the fjord and the Feigumfossen
waterfall. The route passes the summer farm area Flatningane.
