About Synshorn

County Road 51 from Beitostølen - about 15 km to Bygdin - Parks at Saratoga Bygdin (NOK 30 - in the daily parking 2011). Past Hålimostølen and follow the path on the left side of the river. Synshorn alone is a short and easy walk - about 45 minutes up - follow the path marked DNT to the first ledge (800 m) - take the path up the right to the first peak (1464 m). Great ustikt west towards Bygdin and south to Bitihorn. Do you have time, so follow the ridge north to Heimre Fagerdalshøe (1510 m).

Light and lovely area - let the route on the ridge above Rjupetjednet and Valdresflya. Follow - back further on the excellent path with great ustikt against Falketind - hold down the mountainside to the left until you hit the trail DNT. Follow the route to Bygdin through Heimre Fagerdalen - are you ready for a challenge to turn right before Heimre Fagerdalstjednet and climb on Mefjellet 1389 meters above sea level.

Beautiful view - take the path down to Fagerdalen or add turn out to Kungsliknappen with a view to Bygdin - follow the trail over to Synshødn - the path where you started. Calculate 4.5 hours with breaks in the entire round, or share up as needed.
