Take a roundtrip mountain hike with panoramic views
Bitihorn and Skyrifjellet

The panoramic view of Lake Bygdin and the southern Jotunheimen Peaks makes Bitihorn (1,607 m.a.s.l.) one of the most popular viewpoints in Valdres. Choose whether to end your hike here, or continue to Svarteknippa (1,548 m.a.s.l.) to discover even more spectacular views.

The trail to Bitihorn is well marked and easy to follow to the top. Although the terrain becomes increasingly steep and rocky, it doesn’t require you to scramble. There’s no marked trail from Bitihorn to Svarteknippa. Here you follow the ridge of Skyrifjellet to reach the second peak. Because of the considerable length and elevation gain, the roundtrip trail requires hiking experience and a good level of fitness.
