About Jordalsnuten

You can see the majestic Jordalsnuten while driving on road E16 through Nærøydalen valley. From the road, it looks almost impossible to ascend the peak, but you will find a way up from the Jordalen Valley. 

Getting there

From Voss follow road E16 towards Gudvangen through the Sivle tunnel. After about 35 minutes look for a yellow sign towards Jordalen. Take a left here and immediately after, another left. The road takes you back across the river and then takes a sharp right turn and follow the river up along the valley. 

Follow this road until you see a small parking lot on your right-hand side. This is just before the road crosses the river. 

Trail description

Continue along the road, going past the bridge for about 200 meters and you will soon see the trail on your right-hand side. The trail is marked with red ribbons. Follow the winding trail into the forest and upwards.

Parts of the trail is quite steep, so make sure to wear comfortable shoes for hiking.

From the top, you will get a magnificent view of the Nærøyfjord and Jordalen valleys.
