Gjerde - Haugafjellstølen

A steep hike in a south-facing, sunny location, and the chance to swim in a mountain reservoir if you are feeling especially bold. The hike to Haugafjellstølen is popular with residents of Gjerde who like to keep in shape. The shieling is sheltered from the wind, but still offers great views. Until 1952 it was a hive of activity in the summer, with dairymaids milking cattle and making cheese. The shieling buildings and grazing sheep are a reminder of those days.

Tjørhom

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.

Hike to the summit of Flerehei

Hike to Flerehei, where you can still find the remains of a dramatic plane crash! On 4 January 1946 a four-engined RAF bomber carrying eight crew crashed during a night training sortie on high ground in Lunde, Sirdal. The entire crew perished but remnants of the aircraft can still be found scattered around Flerehei. This hike is a fairly strenuous one but the views and the discovery of scattered history at the summit is well worth it.
