Visit one of the most popular viewpoints in Valdres

Bitihorn is a classic route close to the destination, Beitostølen and on the border of Vang and Øystre Slidre. The panorama view from the top makes Bitihorn one of the most visited mountains and viewpoints in Valdres.

There are two trails taking you to the top of Bitihorn. The northern trail is the easier route and can even be accessed in the winter. Upon reaching the top, there is a huge telecom antenna and a modest cabin not open to the public. Bitihorn was initially climbed in 1811 by the botanist, Christen Smith.
