Why this hike should be on your list?
Eggenipa looks very dramatic from below, and there is a reason for that. The ridge is amazing. You start of on a private road that lets you gain elevation easily. Then you hike the ridge all the way to the top. There are many chain sections, but I never found any of them to be difficult. When you get to the top you can continue and do a loop back to the car. The views are great, and the trail good. This is one of the most enjoyable hikes I have done in Norway. This hike is close to Byrkjelo, which is close to the famous little town Loen. In Loen you can do a via ferrata or hike Skåla, or you can drive down to hike Kattanakken in Briksdalen, which is another report I have here.
