Eggenipa is with its distinctive character, one of the most photographed mountain formations in Sogn og Fjordane. With its pointed shape, the mountain has become an icon for photographers and people hiking. The mountain ravages 1338 m, and the ups and downs are large and majestic. Views, magnificent scenery, high altitude meters and lactic acid are experiences you want on the trip.
Seen from Byrkjelo, the freestanding Eggenipa rises majestically at the entrance of the Våtedalen (Wet Valley). The hike up to the summit is actually easier than it looks. From the parking lot at Øvredalen there is a short steep section, and from then the egg will need a little scrambling along the surprisingly broad ridge. When you finally reach the beacon you can relish the feeling of being noticed - that moment when you are the garnish atop this mouth watering mountain.
The hike starts from Øvredalen. You reach Øvredalen on a toll road from Egge, 3 km south of Byrkjelo. You will find a marked trail all the way to the summit. It will take appr. 2 ½ hours to the top.
