Located on the peak of Fannaråken at an elevation of 2068 m, Fannaråkhytta is Norway's highest tourist lodge. Few peaks can compete with the view from Fannaråken, which includes the Hurrungane string of peaks and the Smørstab and Jostedal glaciers. Sunrise with Jotunheim peaks around the points of the compass is an unforgettable scene, an outdoor experience for life.
You can hike to Fanaråkhytta from Skogadalsbøen (5 hours), Sognefjellhytta, Krossbu or Turtagrø (6 hours).
rom Krossbu or Sognefjellshytta, you can join a guided roped party that leaves the edge of the glacier at 13:00 every day and goes over the glacier up to the lodge.

Book a place in the roped party at the lodge where you stay the previous night within 09:00 pm or by telephone to the Fannaråkhytta warden.
