Attraction along Sognefjellet

Oscarshaug

Oscarshaug is a great stopping place along Norwegian Scenic Route Sognefjellet. The renovated rest area offers a magnificent view towards the Hurrungane mountains, with the iconic Mount Store Skagastølstind. The name of the rest area comes from a journey that King Oscar II made over the mountain in 1860, where a cairn was built in memory of this trip.

The toilet at this place has been given a new solid steel superstructure. From the parking area there is a well-maintained path up to the cairn at the top of Oscarshaug. The path has a simple steel railing.

The area has room for two buses, five motorhomes and 20 passenger cars. The toilet is open from May to mid-October.

Partially accessible for wheelchairs.
