There are great views on this walk. From the summit, you can look down on the Nordfjord and Gloppefjord. Haugsvarden is 862 metres above sea level. The trail is well-marked, and the walk is suitable for the whole family.

The easiest way to get to the starting point is to drive. From the car park, there is a good path northeast to Tystadstøylen summer pasture farm. After a five-minute walk, you arrive at the farm, from where there is a fantastic view across the fjord and mountains on the south side of the Gloppefjord. The path continues northeast from Tystadstøylen through a pine and birch forest just before you cross into the mountain terrain. You pass Lomvatnet lake on the way up to Haugsvarden. There are fantastic views throughout the walk, and from the summit you look down onto two fjords. You can also see many of Sunnmøre’s mountains and the distinctive Hyeneshesten mountain. Haugsvarden is 862 metres above sea level. Walk back the same way you came. About 500 metres south/southeast of Tystadstøylen is a Gamme turf hut that belongs to Nordfjord Folkehøgskule (folk high school). It's beautifully situated and can be used by anyone. The turf hut has a wood-burning stove inside and a fire pit outside.
