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 Låveidrusta is located about 4.3 kilometer north from Hosteland along Hwy. 5436. Turn left onto Hwy. 5438 to Sleire, find parking after only 230 meter where a small, local road forks left. A location, slightly uphill on this road is N60.8726498, E5.2621407.
Route description:
Locate a marked trail that forks right from the small road (this road serves a couple of private huts). The trail is sometimes hard to follow and the markers are few and far between. However, the terrain is easy and the direction is pretty obvious.
This was peak number 5 (of 7) climbed on this day. I arrived at the summit around 1430 after a short hike.
