This hike is classified as red. The start was doable but when reaching some climbing is required using ropes. The path is very crowded.

We did this hike in heavy run and it was still worth it though it was a bit slippery, especially on the ferratas.

The bus only to Odda and then on foot. This walk took us the whole day. On the way, huge fields of strawberries. Was beautiful and delicious!

I think yes. Officially it is OK (See the "visit Norway" site). The weather is very important. I would check 2-3 days before. If it is very rainy you should either prepare for very wet weather (boots, raincoat) or drop it... More
