The 7,5 km hike up Mount Kvasshovden starts at sea-level and goes all the way up to 1065 meters above sea level. The hike starts at Ulvik Fjord Hotel and is thoroughly marked all the way. The terrain is steep with the occasional rugged terrain. Total time needed for the hike is 5-6 hours. Every year in July, an uphill race to the summit Kvasshovden following thistrail is held. In June, there may still be parts with remaining winter-snow near the summit. From the top, the view is magnificent with striking fjords and tall mountains, and on the way, you will pass through a traditional Norwegian farm and walk alongside old summer pasture cabins.
