Nordalsvatnet Lake

The path to Norddalsvatnet lake is an easy path that goes alongside the river Norddøla towards the summer farm Nedre Norddalen. This used to be the summer farm for the farms at Ytre Nesse. The last half of the path ascends steadily to Norddalsvatnet lake.

Hesjedalen

The family friendly path to Hesjedal runs along the moderate rise of a moraine ridge up through the Breidalen valley. The path is surrounded by pine ridges and open marshes. Breistølen (locally also called Breien), is the mountain area belonging to the farmers at Indre Nesse. The mountain farms were in use until 1955 and several of the farm buildings are still in good condition. From Breistølen the path passes a stream and continues on a steady ascent towards Hesjedalen lake and Hesjedalen mountain farm where it meets route 3 coming from Tenndalen.

Tenndalen

The route starts at the cable car mount at Sagi. The cable car was used to transport goods up to the plateau above the waterfall. From here the path goes along the old routes towards the mountain farms at Tennfossen. The cable car mount at the plateau is a good place for a stop for a rest and enjoy the view over the fjord. At Tennfossen there were three farms, the last was abandoned in 1970. The watercourse in the valley is protected and the whole valley is free of any technical interventions giving unique views of the many waterfalls. The path flattens as it arrives in Stordalen and the river winds like a serpent through the valley. The path crosses the watercourse on a bridge to Tenndalsstølen, a summer farm owned by the Lindane and Sæle farms. The route follows the east side of the Stordalen valley. At the end you have to wade over the river and follow the trail through the birch woods up to Hesjedalen and the mountain farm there. Here route 3 meets route 2 coming up from Nessadalen.
