How do I get to Sørefjordhytta?

There are three alternative routes:

Parking at Akse

Drive from Hyllestad in the direction of Leirvik/Rysjedalsvika. After approx. After 3.5 km you will come to a junction where you turn off for Birkeland. Furthermore, you drive approx. 1.5 km before you turn off to Akse. After approx. After 1 km you will arrive at the marked parking lot for the day trip cabin.

Parking in Hyllestad

Park at the Spar store/sports track in Hyllestad. Close to the Myklebust field, you go to the top of Myklebustlia. The path to the day trip cabin starts here.


From Hyllestad centre/municipal hall, drive approx. 11.5 km in the direction of Fjaler. At the top of Øvråshøgda, turn left twice. From the main road to Mørketjønnbotnen, it is approx. 1 km. There is room for a few cars in Mørketjønnbotnen, otherwise you can park right after the exit on Øvråshøgda.


The day tour cabin is open all year round. In winter, when the path is covered with snow and ice, you have to make a decision, even if you are fit to walk. We do not recommend the trip when there is snow and ice for inexperienced hikers.
