Description

Experience Setesdal!
A comprehensive network of marked footpaths exists in the Setesdal mountains. On both sides of the valley, you can hike in a wonderful
landscape. The mountain touring association of DNT Sør, manages six cabins in the district of Valle. The distance between the cabins varies, but generally the walk from one cabin to the next takes about 3 to 5 hours.

In most of the cabins you will find food supplies. You can walk in the mountains for days, or just take day trips. Information to inexperienced hikers can be obtained at DNT Sør in Kristiansand and at the tourist office in Valle. Here you can also get planning maps with cabins and paths
marked!
