Dalskarhornet is a pointy top, located above the Leikanger village on the Stadlandet peninsula, belonging to the municipality of Selje. A path runs from the Dalskaret pass (230m) and up the southeast ridge. A big antenna is located on the summit, from where you can see all the major tops on Stadlandet.

Route 1: Dalskaret - Dalskarhornet (summer/autumn)
(all distances are approx. distances)
The nearest larger city is Ålesund. From Ålesund, follow highway E39 towards Bergen, and then RV61 towards Hareid. Take the Sulesund - Hareid ferry, and from Hareid, follow RV61 (roughly) 42Km to Årvika, 5,1km from Larsnes.
Take the Årvika - Koparneset ferry, and follow RV61 past Eidså, Fiskå, Sylte and Åheim (32km). At Åheim, turn right towards Stadlandet/Vestkapp. Follow RV620 7,8km. Just after Kjødspollen, turn right towards Stadlandet/Vestkapp. Follow RV620 19,8km to Leikanger. At the Eltvik/Borgundvåg junction, continue straight ahead and drive 2,9km up a curvy road to the Dalskaret pass. Find parking on the left-hand side in the pass.
Follow a forest road which quickly turns into a forest
path. Follow the path towards the southeast ridge. The marked path continues
past Dalskarhornet on the south side, so make sure you get on the (less visible)
path up the southeast ridge. The summit has no summit marker but there is a big
antenna installation at the top.
