On road 51 across Valdresflya, approximately 20 km north of Beitostølen, locate Valdresflya vandrerhjem on the east side of road 51. Park somewhere at the large car park, but make sure you respect the signs saying that only guests should park in front of the main building.
Start your hike by heading directly east, towards the summit of Fisketjernnuten, which is located out to the right as seen from trail head. After you have passed a couple of small lakes turn a little left and head north-east to the summit. The summit is marked by a cairn and there is likely to be a registration book by the large summit stone.
Descend by reversing your ascent route.

Njål, Sigurd and me had stayed overnight at my friend Håvard's cabin above Nesbyen, and
were due to drive to our cabin at Fjellsetra. We chose to drive the route
Nesbyen - Gol - Fagernes - Lom - Stryn - Fjellsetra, and hence drove across
Valdresflya. Since the weather was relatively nice we decided to stop at
Valdresflya for a leg stretcher, and hiked Fisketjernnuten from Valdresflya
vandrerhjem. There were clouds amongst the higher mountains on the west side of
the road across Valdresflya, but we enjoyed fine views from the summit, before
heading back down for another 4+ hours in the car.
