Description

Drøpta is one of the highest points in Lindesnes Municipality, 339 metres above sea level, with a magnificent view over the valley towards Vigeland and the ocean to the south.

There has previously been a cairn here that was used by ships for navigation – although Drøpta is a long way from the coast, the hill is easily seen from out to sea.

Follow Riksveien 460 northwards from Vigeland. Turn off at Ertzeid towards Manneråk. At the crossroads at Mersland, go a little way downhill until you find the old road that goes northward towards Smedsland. There is a splendid old stone bridge at the stream which you must cross. Continue along the west side of the hill and veer east before you come to the valley. Then swing southwards and climb Drøpta itself – there are several paths to choose from.

The terrain is open, scattered with pine trees and bare rock. It also has areas with bog, so it is an advantage to have waterproof footwear.
