Our full day hiking tour up Mt Oksen to 1241 m will take you off the beaten path into some of the most scenic mountains in Hardangerfjord and offers some spectacular views over four Fjords from the top.
The Mt Oksen trail begins in Tjoflot and starts by winding its way up and through some beautiful native forest. After a fairly challenging start and a demanding climb the trail opens out above the tree line where you start to get a glimpse of the spectacular views ahead.. Up, up, up, the higher you go the more rewarding the view. Reaching the top at 1241m you are rewarded with 360degree views of Samlafjorden, Sørfjorden, Eidfjorden and Granvinsfjorden, as well as panoramic views on the mountain ranges surrounding Voss and Norways’s third largest glacier Folgefonna. Be sure to bring your camera!
Please note that Mt Oksen is a demanding hike that requires a good level of fitness and appropriate clothing and footwear must be worn. The trail climbs straight up 990m from the car park. There are no dangerous passages along the trail but there are two particularly steep parts between 400m and 600ml and towards the top again at 800m.
