Hike to the summit of Røseknuten

Visit the wonderful mountains where a troll (according to legend) lived! If you look closely you will find the footprints left by him on the road! The children who used to tend the cattle here were told to be careful, especially in the dark or during thunderstorms. There is a place in the mountain that is said to be troll country and traces can be found, if you look closely. There is a troll's footprint named "Røsefoten". Infact, legend has it that the troll grew too tall and had to sit, which left a large imprint in the mountain. More markings are to be found in the valley, Tveit Hunnedalen. One in particular is said to be his large rope bag which has left an imprint on the mountainside.

Balestrand

Route 4 Saurdal - Balestrand (via route 9 - 7 Fagradalen - Kreklingen)

The route starts at the information board in Saurdal at the top of the Saurdal road and is marked with red and white markings and stone cairns.  The route goes through mountain valleys, along water courses and to mountain tops. First walk along route 5 towards Munkeggi (NB do not take the turn off to Hanevikelvi) until you come to a sign towards Hanevikstølen. From here take the old path into the Saurdal valley. At the outlet of Målsnesvatnet lake the path continues over the bridge and towards Hanevikstølen, a summer farm which was in use until 1955. From Hanevikstølen follow a path up over the mountain side and on towards the plateau between Storevarden and Bukkaberg. Here you can choose to take a detour up to Storevarden. In Fagradalen you meet route 9 which takes you further to Spenane (1136m) and Raudmelen (972m) and from there on route 7 down to Balestrand.   Or you can of course choose to go back to Saurdal.
