Fjord Norway Ryfylke Sauda

Hovlandsnuten

  • Risvold, Sauda
  • +47 52784200
  •  /  km From You
Overview
Details

From the trail head at Risvoll School in Saudasjøen, Ryfylke. Follow the old forest road towards Nordstøldalen, past the Fairytale Forest, to Brekkestølsbråtet, 300 m. Continue on the level gravel road, before the trail climbs up toward Hovlandsstølen pastures. A new trail, with stone steps built by Nepalese sherpas ascends up to Hovlandsnuten. The hike as a whole, from fjord-side to summit, is referred to as the Saga Trail.

Season: May - November
Allow 4 hours for this 6.8-km round-trip hike.
Grading: Medium

Once every year (in the middle of June), the path to the summit is used for an up-mountain run called Hovlandsnuten Opp. The current record fjord to summit is only 38 minutes!
