About the hike
The trail is quite challenging and has some steep sections with sheer drops at times. Nevertheless, with a gain in elevation of approximately 500 metres, it’s only 3 kilometres long – so it can be a wonderful adventure for the whole family. The trail leads to a viewpoint 1363 metres above sea level, where you can marvel at the breathtaking views of the Aurlandsfjord. The round trip should take around 3 hours.
The season for hiking to Prest starts in May and lasts until October. However, this will depend on the snow conditions. In June you should be aware that there could still be patches of snow on the ground and if the snow is still melting the trail could be both wet and muddy. Whenever you hike, be mindful that the mountain weather can change very quickly, so you should be prepared for all kinds of conditions.
