Overview
Details

On this walking tour you will get a great panorama of the Mørkrid- valley , Åsetelake with mountain huts and the well known peaks of the West-Jotunheimen. You pass the waterfall Drivandefossen close by the path.

Turn off the R55 main road at Skjolden and drive on the east side of the river along the flat and fertile Mørkrids-dalen valley. At Moen cross to the west side and continue some 200m to another junction.Turn left and it is 300m to the car park just above the road.

The path up to Osen is part of the Tourist Association's (DNT) net and is very well maintained and marked. The first stretch swings moderately steep up past the impressive waterfall Drivande. Well past the waterfall the path becomes very steep. It then zigzags fairly steeply up below Fastberget where the last few metres are extremely steep with loose stones on the path some of the way. You get a fine view over Mørkridsdalen from here. Then it is not far to the top of the climb and the path continues level to the Osen summer farm (seter) and ends at Åsetevatnet lake. If you look back you will see the range of Hurrungane peaks.

Osen is one of the finest summer pasture farm in Luster, although it demands some effort to reach it.

From Osen you can go further in to Åsete and Fast, or over to Austra and Arentzbu. If you return via Austra and Møkridsdalen you will have a long, but very nice round trip.
