How to get there: Drive from Sogndal (or via a ferry towards Sogndal from Lærdal) to the Sogndal airport, located on the hill Haukåsen, near the small village Kaupanger. Park at the (free!) airport parking.
Route description: The easiest approach is to follow a road (closed to traffic) that was used when constructing the telecommunication tower on the summit. This road starts out from the airport (as a natural continuation of the airport access road). A somewhat more "sporty" alternative is to just head straight up the hillside from the airport.
Comments: I did this hike with my friends Arnt Flatmo and Jacko Koster. We hiked in considerable snow (Arnt breaking the trail) to about 800 meter, then skied the remaining section to the summit in fog with limited visibility.
Note: The maps seems to have changed. The location with the tower may not be the highest point. Elevations seem to be lower than on previous versions of Norgesglasset. This should be checked out.
