Cross the dam, and continue on a good mountain track. Some of the inclines are a bit steep (and in places the drop down can seem steep). After the hardest inclines are passed you reach a hut, just beneath Bjødnafete (1408 meters above sea level). From here there’s an excellent view of the Folgefonna glacier. The hike moves into a more undulating terrain, mostly on bare rock but with the possibility of a few snowfield crossings, before the last ascent to the peak of Saksaklepp (1491 meters above sea level). This is the highest mountain within the boundaries of the Jondal municipality. There’s a magnificent view of the surrounding mountains, the glacier and towards the fjord. Please note: Some of the older maps have incorrectly exchanged Bjødnafete and Saksaklepp, this is also the situation for the "Lommekjent" map used on this page.
Bring food, drinking water and windproof clothing. We advise you to use hiking boots. We recommend that you bring a map of the area and a compass, or a GPS. Good cell phone signals covering most of the hike. Dogs must be kept (by law) on a leash at all times between April 1 and August 20. Open fire is prohibited in the hills and woods between April 15 and September 15. You are free to walk anywhere in the hills and mountains. Take care of the nature and show special consideration to all wildlife. Please do not litter. Ask the Tourist Information («Juklafjord») regarding angling/fishing and the purchase of fishing permits.
Take road 105 from Jondal towards Folgefonna. After 8.0 km turn right just before the bridge. (Close to the road junction is an information board showing details of tours 11 to 19.) This is a toll road for those continuing by car. The pay point is about 100 m in from the main road. You can pay by cash or card. After about 8 km take a left turn and follow the road another 500 m down towards the dam, Dravladalsdammen. At the parking spot (parking at own risk) you can find the hiking sign marking the route to Saksaklepp.
