When you travel through the cultural landscape, you have the opportunity to experience a rich wildlife. You can see animals grazing and you can see birds in flight. You cycle past empty homestead where people for generations managed with few resources. On the bike ride you will also travel past the farm Hallesby. Former theology professor Ole Kristian Hallesby (1879-1961) lived and wrote here about what later became known as the Hell Debate in 1953.

You will also cycle past the farm Røser which means stone mound, so here people have cleared the ground for farming. When you come to Smørtjern, (Butterpound)  think that the cows grazed here, because the word butter originally comes from the Greek word for cow. Take many stops along the way and enjoy the ride. Remember to bring a thermos and packed lunch! The trip can be suitable for most people, including children accustomed to cycling from 11-12 years.
