Description

Glacial potholes are round caves in the mountain made by water, ice and stones i the last iceage. In the steep mountain walls at Rullestadjuvet you can see some of Northern Europes largest potholes; several meters in diameter. Some holes are "twins" and others are single. The potholes have during the decades been filled with mud and water, but this make them no less impressive!
The area are situated close to the old E134 in Rullestadjuvet, but the potholes can not be seen from the road. To visit the potholes you can follow the Postvegen track from Skromme and then turn left at the road-sign to Jettegrytnuten. The hike is not long, but quite difficult as the terrain is very steep. The hike requires good equipment, and must not be done in wet terrain! Ask for local advice at the Tourist Information ore at Rullestad Aktiv Fritid before you make this trip! Guided hike for gruops on request; - recommended!
