Vacation week is on!Tops and places visited
Wednesday: After working the first two days of my final vacation week, it was time to log out from work and enjoy the beautiful weather in Indre Sogn. The plan was clear – Kinnfokfjellet from Berge. And possibly Hornanosi too. There’s nothing better than starting the vacation with a new top.
My starting point was Berge – approx. 370m above Lustrafjorden. The road was free of charge, but there was a parking fee (NOK 50,-) which I gladly paid.
The path went steeply up the forest and after a while we reached Ferestad. From here, I could see Børesteinen above.
The path now left the ridge and curved around Børesteinen, leading us to the river. The last part up to Børesteinen had one section that some would feel a bit awkward. But there is an alternative (and most likely easier) route, denoted by a signpost.
By the time we reached the top of Børesteinen, something had happened to my camera settings and the rest of the pictures got a weird color. I’ve tried to fix whatever I could, but they still look weird.
Børesteinen is a typical “selfie point“, but this was not our main goal and we continued up the mountain.
Initially, we followed a path but lost it after a while and didn’t bother looking for it. The terrain was very easy to hike off-trail in.
There was a very strong and cold wind on the mountain. Which was a shame, as I had (possibly) planned to hike Hornanosi (1496m) also. But in this wind, that was not an option. Karma didn’t seem to be too bothered about the cold wind…
The view towards the Hurrungane group was plain nice!
Eventually, we reached the top. Another needle on my map!
Lots of great views from up here!
But, the farmer at Berge told me when I arrived there that Fjøsnenosi was a much better viewpoint. I had no idea where Fjøsnenosi was, but I reckoned it had to be point 1306m above Lustrafjorden. So that’s where we headed next.
And sure enough, Fjøsnenosi was a great viewpoint!
We looked straight down on Skjolden – the innermost village in Lustrafjorden, and could see the fjord all the way to Haugemelen!
Not only did we get fjord views, Hurrungane was even closer now!
For our return, we stuck to the edge of the mountain before it was time to set the course towards Børesteinen and descend our ascent route.
Trip statistics: 14,2km, 1130 vertical meters, 4h:42m
