About Finnbunuten

Follow the marked trail to Finnbunuten from Myrkdalen Mountain Resort in Myrkdalen, via Helgatun and Vetlebotn. When you reach the mountain farm Vetlebotn, continue along "Kari Traa ski lift" (the ski lift furtherst east).

This is a family-friendly hike with a trail that is easy to negotiate. However, it is relatively long with the journey to the summit from Voss Fjellandsby/Helgatun measuring 900 meters, and 650 meters from Vetlebotn. The hike can be reduced somewhat by driving along the toll-road to Vetlebotn (700 meters above sea level) and starting the walk from there.

On a clear day you can enjoy magnificent views of glaciers such as Hardangerjøkulen, Jostedalsbreen and Folgefonna. If you are lucky you may catch a glimpse of some reindeer, as the grazing ground in the area surrounding Finnbunuten is vital for the wild reindeer during the summer and autumn months.
