About the hike

The trail is well-maintained, and parts of it go on stone steps made by Sherpas from Nepal. At the top is a unique rectangular hut made by architecture students from Bergen.

Meet your guide at the Balestrand Tourist Information Office. Here there is a short briefing about the hike before you walk up through the village to Ja-steinen, the starting point for most trails in Balestrand. From here you hike 3 kilometers to Orrabenken, a viewpoint 370 meters above sea level. The hike takes about an hour each way, with a break for an included lunch at the top. The trail is well-maintained, but can be slippery after rainy weather. Wear solid shoes and bring extra clothes in case of rain.
