Engjadalen - Heggdalsvatnet

Overview
Details

The starting point is the car park in Engjadalen. The first stretch follows a track on the west side of the river along the valley. After a short walk you come to a marked path which leads to the Tourist Association (DNT) cabin at Navarsete. The path continues along the west side of the river until it crosses the river just before Heggdalen, an nice summer farm up the green and fertile Engjadalen valley.

From Heggdalen the climb is fairly steep up to Heggdalsvatnet lake where the path occasionally goes right to the edge of the river cutting.

It is as well to warn you to avoid this stretch, especially when it's raining or there is slippery ice. You can leave the path and find a way a few metres further from the cliff.

The last stretch takes you close under some high crags before you reach the outlet from Heggdalsvatnet. Ahead and across the lake you see the mountains Stongfjellet and Fivlenosi and the pass to Vigdalen.

It is possible to take another route back to the road. The Seljesete track crosses the river just below the wooden weir at the foot of the lake and goes in a westerly directionjust north of Vorfjellet. Down gently sloping ground you cross a couple of marshy areas and soon catch sight of the buildings at Seljesete. From this summer pasture farm there is a track going south to Brunene and beyond, down to the car park in Engjadalen.
