Most of the hike is on bare rock, which can become very slippery when wet. It’s easy walking even though the incline is steep. The path crosses a few small marshes nearer to the summit. There is a beautiful view of the fjord on the way up and, when you reach the top, there’s a superb view of the village of Herand.
Season: May - October. DO NOT ATTEMPT this hike if it’s wet, snow, ice or frost.
