About Steinbua på Surtningssue

Surtningssue is one of the ten highest peaks in Norway and a major hiking destination for many hikers. At the top you have wonderful and varied panoramic views. There are several routes up and you can make this a round trip.

From Memurubu follow the path towards Besseggen for about 1 km before turning west and follow the ridge towards Raudhamran. Steinbua lies 2230 meters above sea level on the trail about 1 km before the main peak of Surtningssue. Steinbua provides shelter from the wind and is a nice place for your packed lunch. Return via Memurudalen is a nice round trip.
