Tour description:
In all, this is an easy and varied hike in the cultural landscape south of Skånevik, with a beautiful view over the Skånevik fjord and the mountains of Kvinnherad. The famous Norwegian painter Lars Hertervig (1830-1902) was inspired by the same panorama, during his stays in Skånevik in the 1850 century. Copies of paintings are on display at  Skånevik Fjordhotel., also including famous motif from Rullestad ravine in the Åkrafjord.

The tour heads south past Skånevik school. After 350 m, at the farm pond on Milja, turn left, cross the river, and turn right past sawmill. 600 m further up you come to the beech forest. Here you can walk a short extra loop in the nature trail, with information boards about the forest and ecology etc. The main tour continues straight to the end of the gravel road, where you turn right on forest road to the beautiful bridge in the old post-road (1785) 100 m farther. Cross bridge and go post-road west past Tjedla farm. If you do not want extra trip further west on the post road, go on straight down back to the center past Dørfabrikken (Door factory) and Milja farm.
