About Mt. Hanguren
This walking route takes you from Voss town center up to Mount Hanguren, and back to Voss. You can choose to walk all the way, or drive to Voss Folkemusem and start from there. At the top of Mount Hanguren, 660 m, there are toilet facilities.
If you choose to walk all the way you can start by Voss Church in Voss town center, and follow Gullfjordingsvegen past the souvenir shop "Vossatroll" and Voss Sparebank. Then follow the signs towards Voss Folkemuseum. From Voss Folkemuseum, Mølster, there is a footpath on the right hand side of the parking lot, this goes all the way to Mount Hanguren. It is a relatively steep climb and one should wear comfortable shoes. It takes 1-2 hours up, depending on your physical shape. Going back to the town center, you can walk the same route as you took up or follow marked trails to Raugstad or Bavallen.
Alternatively, you can drive to Voss Folkemuseum and start the trip there. Follow Ringheimsvegen, signposted towards Voss Hospital (Voss Sjukehus), and continue until you see a sign for Voss Folkemuseum. Then follow Mølstervegen to the end.
