The narrow and steep Mt. Slogen is one of the region most famous summits along with Mt. Skåla. You only need to reach the summit you understand why!

We can hike Slogen from either Stranda or Øye based on what suits you best.
This is a fairly demanding trip and you should allow for a full day to reach the summit and back. Prior hiking experience isn’t mandatory but we highly recommend it.
From the Stranda side, we are following a trail into Liadalen. After a few hours, we’ll see Patchellhytta and Slogen towering above us. Only once we reach the foot of Slogen does the steep climb begins. From there, we follow the two distinct “camel humps” before we take up the last ridge to the summit.
The view from the top of Slogen into Hjørundfjorden is magic! For those with fear of heights, we may recommend you another trip. It’s quite narrow up there!
