Description

This hike is a gem! Bright green hills for the most part of the year, with staggering magnificent cliffs towards the Mastrafjord below, and with a soft waving pastoral and coastal heaths inland.  

The roundtrip starts from the farm Bø. After a couple of hundred metres the path divides into two, and you have a choice of walking the lower path below the steep cliffs to Hesthammar; a settlement from the Migration period with ruins of houses, stone houses, fences, clearance cairns, mounds and fields reiner up the mountain. You can also choose to go over the green pastoral path, towards Torsbakkene and over the hills to Niben (104 meters above sea level) and Knott (110 meters above sea level).
