Hovdenuten – round trip 4 km

The 1119-metre Hovdenuten is one of the local summits, now with sherpa steps. Enjoy the magnificen view! 

This is a great family hike, manageable for children aged five and upwards. This is a round trip, and we recommend to walk clockwise.

To get to the starting point, follow the road from central Hovden to the bottom of the hill in the cabin area "Hovden Fjellpark". Continue on marked trail to the left.

Autumn 2021 a large section of the planned sherpa trail was completed, and this work will continue in 2022. 

For families with young children walking time to the summit is about 1,5 hours. The total length is approximately 4 km.

This is a round trip and from the top, continue on the marked trail to the pass Breiveskaret, which will take you to the top of Fjellparken cabin area. This part of the trail has some loose rocks and at times wet bog areas. Solid footwear is recommended.

The summit awaits you with a stone cairn and a guest book.
