About Storebjørn

Storebjørn is the majesty among Smørstabbtindene, and looms over the terrain with its special shape. The hike to Storebjørnen is one of the truly great classics in Norway. It is a demanding trip to the top of the mountain. The most common route goes over Bjørnbrean, which has large cracks in several directions. Most people, who hike the mountain during the summer season, use guides from Leirvassbu or Krossbu.

The map track shows the usual winter route to Storebjørn from Krossbu, located at Sognefjellfjellsvegen.
