The recreational area Djupadalen is located close to the centre of Haugesund. The area is often used for hiking and recreation throughout the year. In summertime you can swim in Eivindsvannet, a small lake in the middle of this recreational area.


Being located in Haugesund, it is easy to get out in the woods by going on a round trip of approximately 10km. You go up Djupaskarsvegen to Djupadalen and back via Kattanakk and Haraldsvang and back to the city centre.


Approximately 3 km from the start you will find yourself at the point called Stemmen, a small dam with a white wooden house on top. The trail along the west side of the water is universally designed with leading edges along path. There are numerous hiking trails in the area and Djupadalen is also used as touring base for trips up to Steinsfjellet and to the rest of Byheiene.


Whether you choose to go straight ahead from Stemmen or stick to the right along the water you`ll end up at the same point by a small cottage with public toilets. From this point, the hike continues straight ahead (not turning left) passing a cabin belonging to Haugesund Sports Club (HIL). Once you have passed this, turn left up Henning Paulsen veg and continue until you reach Kattanakk (you are back on asphalt again) and you choose the road to the left. Follow Austrheimsvegen to Haraldsvang Nature Park, where you follow the main path until you come to Haugesund Idrettspark (area for sports) Follow Hanne Hauglandsveg to the end and turn right towards the city centre.
