Hiking tour to overview 4 fjords - Outdoor Norway
Get off the beaten path with full day trip and head up to Mount Oksen (The Bull) - one of the true landmarks along Hardangerfjorden. The mountain rises up from arms of the Hardangerfjord - Samlafjorden, Sørfjorden, Eidfjorden and Granvinsfjorden.
The Hardangerfjord is the fourth longest fjord in the world, and the second longest fjord in Norway.
At the top you will get a panoramic 360 degrees view of 4 fjords at same time, a remarkable eyesight of Hardangerfjorden and the mountain areas of Voss and Hardanger. You will also see Norway’s third largest glacier - Folgefonna. Most people are able to walk all the way to the top, but the trail is partly very steep.
This is a demanding hike. There are no dangerous passages along the trail, but it is steep all the way. There are two particularly steep parts - between 400 and 600 masl and between 800-1100 masl. We have some short pauses on way up for rest and photographing.
From the parking at 250mts altitude to the top of Oksen 1241mts, the height difference is approximately 990 meters.
