Rambjøra is one of lowest coastal tops on Gurskøya, located near Dragsundet - the 50m wide sound between Hareidlandlandet and Gurskøya islands. A vague path reveals that the top isn't attracting the crowds, but it is a nice viewpoint towards the higher tops on Hareidlandet and Gurskøya and the Vanylven tops facing Rovdefjorden.

Primary factor:

Rambjøra (Norge 1:50,000: 132m, Økonomisk Kartverk (ØK): 132,36m,  UTM 32 V 334799 6910012) has a primary factor of 109m towards the higher parent mountain Huldrehornet (271m). The defining saddle (approx. UTM 32 V 333764 6909438) is found along the highway 654 at Myrvågane.  Ref. Økonomisk Kartverk map (5m contours), the saddle is within the range 20-25m, interpolated to 23m.

GPS measurement on top of the trig. point (2m high) read 132m, averaged over a 5-minute period (error margin +/- 1,4m).

(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. From the roundabout in Hareid, follow RV61/RV653 and pass Ulsteinvik (11,1km), and turn right towards Måløy/Fosnavåg after 16,8km.

Reset your odometer. Continue on highway 654km. Cross the bridge across Dragsundet, ignore the Måløy junction (2,9km) and turn right after 3,5km (signposted "Aldersheim"). You have a 3-way fork ahead of you. Take the middle road and drive 200m. Turn left when you see the "Eldreboliger" sign. The path begins 100m up the road - just before the "horseshoe" (road loop). Find parking where appropriate.

The route

If you don't see the path right away, just follow the ridge, and you'll be on the path quite soon. Follow the path all the way to the top, which is marked by a trigonometric point.
