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.
