Fannaråki (or Fannaråken) is a mountain in the municipality of Luster in Sogn og Fjordane county, Norway. The 2,068-metre (6,785 ft) tall mountain is located in the Jotunheimen National Park, just south of the lake Prestesteinsvatnet and the Sognefjellsvegen road. This mountain is located about 6 kilometres (3.7 mi) north of the Skagastølstindane mountains (Store Skagastølstind, Vetle Skagastølstind, Midtre Skagastølstind, Sentraltind, Store Styggedalstind, and Jervvasstind).[1]


The first element is derived from the word fonn which means "glacier made of snow" and the last element is the finite form of råk which means "mountain ridge".[1]
