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.
From Hosteland, take Hwy. 5436 north to Kvamsdalsvatnet. Before the road turns east and just before crossing a distinct, small valley, find parking. This location is at N60.88440, E5.26676, elevation about 70 meter.
Route description:
Follow the old forest road until it levels out at a good sized meadow. There are some trail markers indicating the beginning of a trail that ascends left. Follow this trail to the summit. This trail may be somewhat hard to follow, the markers are few and far between. However, just keep an uphill course. You will pass a local top on your right. Higher up, you will locate a small pond. There are 2 summit points, one directly above the pond, the other further ahead and more right. This latter summit is the one you should aim for.
This was my last peak of the day, no. 7. On the way to the trailhead, I noticed a couple of nice deer. I arrived at the summit shortly before 1800.
