M/B Bitihorn

Join a beautiful journey across Bygdinvannet with historic M / B Bitihorn. On board Bygdinbåten you see many of Jotunheimen’s mighty peaks towering along the water. The boat calls at Bygdin, Torfinnsbu and Eidsbugarden, all of which are great starting points for experiences in the mountains. The boat at Bygdin operates daily during the season from the end of June to mid-September.

We drive you from Oslo or Bergen straight into the mountain adventure, where we also take care of luggage transport, and arranging accommodation in cozy mountain lodges, with local history and traditional dishes.

The boat over Bygdin

M / B Bitihorn operates on Jotunheimen’s largest lake Bygdin, 1058 masl. The water is approx. 30 km long and the boat trip takes around 1 hour and 45 minutes each way. On board there is easy serving of hot and cold drinks, snacks and Bitihorn effects. We have a lounge with seating for approx. 70 passengers.

The boat calls at Eidsbugarden in the west and Bygdin in the east. We also have ports of call for boarding and disembarking midway at Torfinnsbu.

M / B Bitihorn was built and launched in 1912 and had its maiden voyage on 17. July the same year. The boat has been in service on Bygdin since, only interrupted by a couple of years during World War II. During a summer season we transport approx. 10,000 passengers over Bygdinvannet.
