Description

The trail starts about 200 meters back from the signpost on the country road in Vigdalen. The trail crosses the river and after a while goes south towards Fivla at the trail-cross between Vigdal, Vigdalstølen, Dalsdalen and Fivla. Fivla is a DNT cabin owned by Luster Turlag. From Fivla you can hike further on T-marked trail to Navarsete and Engjadalen, a day hike for experienced hikers. The mountain Fivlanosi (1466m) is also a possible goal from Fivla, but there is no marked path to the top.

From Vigdalen you are also welcome to do several other great hikes. But please don't park your car in front of the gates beside the animal grates. Otherwise you will hinder all the farmers in the valley from walking their animals between grasslands.

A few hundred years ago this path was the main road between Jostedal and Lustrafjorden. Vigdalen was then a part of Dale and this trail was the road to church. The trail is called Bispevegen (The Bishop's road) after Bishop Johan Nordal Brun, who travelled this trail when visiting Jostedalen. The year of passing and the first letters of his name are engraved in the mountain beneath Storhaug.
