The 1919-metre Hovdenuten is one of the summits near Hovden. Enjoy magnificent views of Hovden and the surrounding mountains to the east and west. 

This is a great family hike, manageable for children aged five and upwards. This is a round trip, and we recommend to walk clockwise.

To get to the starting point, follow the road from Hovden centre to the bottom of the hill in "Hovden Fjellpark". Continue on marked trail to the left.

The initial ascent is steep, with some rocky sections. For families with young children, walking time to the summit is about 1,5 hours. The total length is approximately 4 km.

 You may choose to walk back the same way or continue on the marked trail to the pass Breiveskaret, which will take you to the Fjellparken cabin area. This part of the trail has some loose rocks and at times wet bog areas. Solid footwear is recommended.

The summit awaits you with a stone cairn and a guest book.
