About Skaget

Follow FV51 to Heggenes and turn towards Yddin (automatbom, NOK 50, - in 2011). Drive past Yddin Fjellstogo and further inland. The road ends at Storeskag. Park approx. 100 meters before the tourist lodge (DNT). The road may have varying standards early in the season due to. the late snowmelt. Go through the yard to the rear of the cabin, where the trail begins. The route splits a little way up the hillside, and the main route turn right up østskulderen and then turns west towards the top. Tour scattered cairn. Alternatively, you can follow the path straight ahead and uphill. The routes can be combined into a nice visit. The tour is recommended only in clear weather.
