How to get there:
A good point of reference is the small community Hosteland, located north
of Masfjorden. To get there from Bergen, drive north on E-39. Just before E-39
enters the 4 km long Eikefet tunnel, there is a choice of route. Forking left onto
Hwy. 570, then connect from Masfjordneset to Duesund by (cable) ferry. This is a scenic
option. Alternatively, continue on E-39 passing the two fingers of Masfjorden, then an
uphill tunnel to the intersection with Hwy. 571. Turn left here, descending on the north
side of Masfjorden to meet Hwy. 570 near Hosteland.
The third, and perhaps best way, is to use the ferry from Leirvåg. Turn left in the
very first traffic circle in Knarvik (immediately after the bridge), follow Hwy. 57 to
Leirvåg. This ferry leaves 15 minutes past the hour. The return ferry leaves
Sløvågen 15 minutes before the hour. The crossing takes 20 minutes. From
Sløvågen, you have 14 kilometer to reach Hosteland.
The trailhead for Grååsen is located about 1.2 kilometer north from Hosteland along Hwy. 5436.
There is a small road forking left.
The location is N60.85137, E5.26046, elevation about 45 meter.
Continue along the forest road that climbs with a couple
of bends. Just when it seems to level, follow a clear trail that
forks right. There are a few alternatives, but there are no
This was my 3rd. (of 7) summits climbed this day.
I started out around 1130 and reached the summit at 1200, noon.
