  •  /  km From You

Aksla is a populare hiking trip located at Otrøya in Midsund. There are 500 steps up to the view point 110 masl. You will need about 45 minutes up and down.

The trip from Aksla and on to Akslahornet (411 masl) follows a path that is steep and airy, and you will find a small "via ferrata" with chains and stepping stones in the airiest places. From the top of Akslahornet you can continue on the path to Digergubben and the hammock park.
The stones used in building the stairs are found at various local mountains. The stairs will protect the ground from wear and tear, as the path is a populare mountain to hike. Sherpas from Nepal have built the stairs which is an impressive piece of work.
