How to get there:
From Bergen, drive south to Os, then east to the ferry at Hattvik. Take it across to Venjaneset. Measure from here. Drive into Fusa and turn right (south). Roughly at kilometer 5.2, look for a small road that heads uphill to your left. Take this road and drive uphill until you arrive at a flat spot with ample space for parking. This location is N60.16648 E005.60386, elevation about 150 meter. This is a good trailhead for Bogafjellet (north) and for Snøkkja (more south-east).
Route description:
The best route is to take the old road that climbs on the right hand side of the lake when viewed from the trailhead. When you hit a big, new forest road at the base of the hill, just ascend directly up from near the forest road fork. Once on top of the steep slope, continue across the top plateau to the summit.
I started hiking at 1250 and arrived on top at 1330. After a long break in the nice weather, I headed back down. Unfortunately, my camera ran out of battery power, this was the first hike in about 3 years where I did not bring a spare!
Down by the lake, I continued along the shore to get to my next objective, Snøkkja. This was a bit cumbersome, due to many fallen trees. Finally, up on a forest road, I decided to tackle the new hill straight on. There was actually some sort of track a bit up in the hill. Arriving on this summit around 1500, I signed the summit register and was unhappy about not getting a photo. I returned to my car by 1530.
