Scenic journey on M/B Bitihorn over the Bygdin lake in Jotunheimen
It starts at Eidsbugarden in the west end or Bygdin in the east end. The season starts the last weekend in June and our last sailing is beginning of September. Each day has two departures from Eidsbugarden and Bygdin.
M/B Bitihorn celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2012 and have spent all its years on the Bygdin lake. Built at Glommens Mekaniske Verksted in Fredrikstad, this was build number 19. Originally powered by a 40hp Bolinder diesel engine. Today it's powered by a 330h Scania engine, the fourth engine in M/B Bitihorn since 1912. The vessel was originally 55 foot long but added 10 foot in 1977 making it a total length of 65 foot. M/B Bitihorn has a passenger capacity of 98 and 2 crew members, one captain and one deckhand.
If you are lucky it is possible to see reindeers, occasionally large herds of several hundered animals. Along the route there is also two small old stone cabins that reindeer hunters used for shelter in the 19th century.
