Overview

More
Slogen is arguably the finest summit in the Sunnmore Alps and the view is impressive! From the fjord a triangular pyramid-like feature rises straight up. Patchellhytta cabin lies at the foot of Slogen and is popular day tour objective in itself, but it is also a good starting point for ascents of Slogen, as well as Brekketind (5,833 ft) and Smorskredstind (5,351 ft). There are several alternative routes to Patchellhytta, and onwards to Slogen, either from oye, Engeset or Urke. Season Jun - Sept Duration From oye: 4-5 hours, Urke: 5 hours and Patchellhytta: 2-3 hours.  Distance and total height gain: From oye: 3 km. 4,921 ft. From Patchellhytta: 3 km. 2,460 ft. From Urke: 3,937 ft. 8 km. Access Bus/car to oye or Stranda/Engeset. www.fjord1.no. Hjorundfjord Cruise , see p. 31. Worth noting: You are strongly advised not to use the snow fields on the way down unless you have an ice axe and know how to brake with it. This practice leads to several serious accidents every year.

I hike often, and this was a hard hike. We went up to Patchellhytta then to the summit. The climb to Patchellhytta was very strenuous. It took us 2:30 hours to reach the cabin. From there, it took us about 2:30 hours to reach the...More

I have been to Slogen twice, first time the weather was bad and i didn't have a view from the top. And, I took the trail that goes to Patchellhyta (DNT cabin) and there is no trail after the hut. I struggled in the snow...More

We took the hike to up to Slogen from Øye, close to the Union Hotel. This route is very steep and tough, but definitely worth it once you get to the top. We spent 5 and a half hours tour-retour including breaks and we are...More

The TA map points to Slogen at the exact location where the city's tourist info centre is located - at the centre of the city. Misguiding. Since i had read up on the place, courtesy fellow TA contributors, the 'near me' option on TA map...More

First of all - you'll have to be rather fit to take on the Slogen mountain. The easiest way is through the Habbostad valley (2 hrs hike from where you park) and lunch at the Patchell cabin before you hike to the top (another two...More
