From Oslo to Bergen
From Bergen to Sognefjorden
> Sognefjellet


The next morning we woke up with a beautiful view over Sognefjorden. We continued through Sogndal and Luster to Sognefjellet. In the bottom of the Lustra fiord, in Skolden, the climb up to Sognefjellet began. The highest point on the road over Sognefjellet is 1434 m above sealevel. Luster

We got a room at Sognefjellshytta. I stayed here on my trip in 2000, where I found the place to be worth coming back to. This time I was a bit disapointed - the dinner meal was not so exiting as we had tried other places and the place was almost empty - it was in the end of the season.

Compared to year 2000 there was hardly any snow on Sognefjellet. Normally there is quite a lot of snow also in the summertime because of the height, but in 2002 there was very little snow.
