Slogen, Alesund

(4.7/5 based on 15+ reviews on the web)
Slogen is a mountain rising up from Hjørundfjorden in the municipality of Ørsta in Møre og Romsdal county, Norway. The mountain is located just west of the municipal boundary with Stranda and just north of the nearby mountain Jakta. Many famous Norwegians have been on the top of this mountain, including most notably Queen Sonja of Norway.Even though it is not among the highest peaks in Norway, the 1564m tall mountain is rated among the top ten mountain walks in Norway. This is largely due to its beauty, view, and the fact that it's rising directly from the fjord.Legend has it that Slogen was first climbed in 1870 by Jon Klokk. Later on that year it was climbed by the famous climber and alpine explorer William Cecil Slingsby. The latter wrote about the view from Slogen as "one of the proudest in Europe".

  • 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 st...  more »
  • The excursion is very good and fun for the whole family. Most suitable for adult friends or families with older children (I recommend at least 5 years). Near average hiking there is a cabin that you can spend the night. In the event that travel during the holidays, the cabin can fully enough. The tour has something climbing. On top the view is very pretty, and you can see fantastic mountains and fjords. The most I recommend the tour.

  • Started the trip from the eye on a beautiful sunny day and great expectations to the Slogen. Was prepared on a heavy trip, and there was no lie! The path up was very nice and well marked, and of course very steep! You go straight upwards until you are at the top, but it is totally worth it when you get up. For a great view. That we were not as prepared for was how heavy it was down again with gelebein, then stretch out the muscles often! Last opportunity to fill the water is at 600 m height, so we had some extra bottles, and it was a good idea! Spent about 8hours return trip with lots of breaks and 30 min at the top.
