Midsundtrappene - Hike to Digergubben and Midsundhornet

Digergubben (527 masl) is one of the four popular stone stairs in Midsund! The tour starts in the centre of Midsund.

This is an exciting hiking opportunity that is specially adapted to meet various needs. Sherpa people from Nepal have paved the path with stones and built the stairs. The impressive stone structure is worth a visit in its own right. You will also get to enjoy a fantastic view of the mountains, fjords and the ocean.

Notes regarding cycling in the Sherpa stairs

Cycling is not recommended in the Sherpa stairs. The stairs are not designed for this type of use and stress load. Stones can loosen and cause dangerous situations for people using the stairs.

Dedicated volunteers have contributed to making the mountain accessible with Sherpa stairs. They want the stairs to be used for hiking and not activities that can lead to repair work. Thank you in advance for your consideration.
