About Bitihorn

- the horn of Jotunheimen

Driving over the Valdresflye, the eye is immediately drawn to the infamous Bitihorn. The mountain has inspired logos for local companies, and even the name of the boat cruise that runs on Lake Bygdin, M/B Bitihorn. The spectacular views in every direction and its accessibility makes it the most visited peak in Valdres!

The panoramic view of Lake Bygdin and the southern ​Jotunheimen​ Peaks makes Bitihorn (1,607 m.a.s.l.) one of the most popular viewpoints in Valdres. Choose whether to end your hike here, or continue to Svarteknippa (1,548 m.a.s.l.) to discover even more spectacular views. The trail to Bitihorn is well marked and easy to follow to the top. Although the terrain becomes increasingly steep and rocky, it doesn’t require you to scramble. There’s no marked trail from Bitihorn to Svarteknippa. Here you follow the ridge of Skyrifjellet to reach the second peak. Because of the considerable length and elevation gain, the roundtrip trail requires hiking experience and a good level of fitness.
