Molden is a single standing plateau mountain 1118 masl with the fjord and lowland on all sides. Its location between Jostedalsbreen, Jotunheimen and other mountain regions makes the view breathtaking.
It is fairly easy to access Molden. The hike takes 2-3 hours up and
1-2 hours down. The path is well marked and starts at Molden parking
at 500 masl. To get to Molden parking you;
a) Use your car from Eplet: 10 min drive.
b) Bus along the mainroad. You need to hike from the bus stop at 300 masl up to Molden parking at 500 masl. That trip extension takes an hour.
c) Rent bike at Eplet and bike up to Molden parking. After climbing Molden you continue on the Spectacular mountain road. Highly reccomended.
From the summit you see the head of the Sognefjord, the second longest fjord in the world. You see the peaks of Jotunheimen national park and the glacier plateu of the Jostedalsbreen national park. Straight under your feet lies Lustrafjord. This picture is then the sun rise on Molden summit on a mid-summer night:
