From the village of Vinstad, which can only be reached by boat, walk the length of the fjord along the village’s only street. At the end of the fjord take the trail on your left towards the Einangen pass.
From the pass take the trail on your right which climbs the right-hand side of the valley towards the pass between the peaks of Brunakseltinden (513m) and Kammen (514m). At the pass, take the ridge on your left that climbs towards Brunakseltinden peak.
Even though it is possible to hike from Brunakseltinden peak (513m) along the ridge to Helvetestinden peak (602m), which is the highest peak of the mountain, we would advise against it as the route is dangerous towards the end and leaves no room for error.
Go back the way you came but we would recommend a detour via the beautiful Bunes beach which you can get to from the Einangen pass.
