Description

The hiking trip follows the old Post Road that dates from the 1800s and sneaks along the riverside down through Rullestadjuvet Gorge. The walk begins in dramatic landscape at the edge of a waterfall and cliff. Further below, the terrain is gentler and the view of nearby farms and shimmering Lake Rullestadvatnet is very enjoyable. The historic trail was restored in 2009 and is easy to follow. Starts from the old E134 on top of the Rullestadjuvet and stops at the farms by the Rullestadvatnet lake, aprox. 2 kilometers.

You can easily walk on your own, and groups can hire a guide on request. Along the way, the guide is happy to share the rich history of the area with you.

Remember to bring comfortable shoes/hiking boots/boots, camera, also remember to dress according to the climate.
